IIDA Perspective - Fall/Winter 2014 - 34

Milwaukee's sense of entrepreneurship is perhaps
clearest in the city's Fifth Ward, where an old
brick-and-timber warehouse is helping reinvent
southeastern Wisconsin's relationship with its
greatest natural resource. The building, The Global
Water Center, is a cutting edge research facility,
where scientists from The University of Wisconsin
Milwaukee's School of Freshwater Sciences and
Marquette University conduct basic research on
everything from groundwater monitoring systems
todesalination. It's also a business incubator, where
legacy companies like A.O. Smith Corp. and Badger
Meter work alongside startups, and major step
forward in Milwaukee's bid to become a new
high-tech water research hub.

The Global Water Center (GWC), which had
its grand opening last fall, is the brainchild of
Milwaukee's Water Council, a conglomerate of local
leaders from private and public sectors whose
mission is to establish Milwaukee as a worldwide
center for water research, economic development,
and education. It's a movement that's garnered
a lot of support. The city's mayor, Tom Barrett,
recently told the Milwaukee Business Journal that
he would love for the city to be a "national center"
for water, science and policy development, and
Governor Scott Walker praised the council for
giving Wisconsin a "unique advantage in water
innovation and business development."
Local architects and GWC designers Kahler Slater
emphasize that the project's design was meant to
encourage cross-pollination amongst a melting-pot
of tenants: scientists, business leaders and policy
influencers. The expectation is that the confluence
of these industry experts will lead to unique
opportunities for innovation that aren't happening
anywhere else in the world.
