Northwestern Mutual Tower and Commons

Located along downtown Milwaukee’s lakefront, the new Northwestern Mutual headquarters comprises a 32-story tower adjoined by a three-story space known as the Commons. Within the nearly three-acre Commons, dramatic water features inside the lobby welcome visitors and clients, while bringing a sense of peace and tranquility to the building’s all-glass atrium. The series of fountains use a perimeter overflow to keep the water’s surface almost motionless and undisturbed. For more on Martin Aquatic’s Water Feature projects, click here.


For this project’s water features, Martin Aquatic provided hydraulic, structural, filtration, and chemical system design and engineering services.
