The weather outside suggests that Friday Photos should feature an igloo this week, but we’ll instead head to the East Side to check in on a new building on UW-Milwaukee’s campus.
A dual-purpose building is under construction at the northwest corner of the intersection of N. Maryland Ave. and E. Kenwood Blvd. The two-story, 24,000-square-foot building will house a welcome center for the university and, more importantly, the Lubar Entrepreneurship Center.
Endowed by Sheldon and Marianne Lubar, the new center is intended to create a multidisciplinary environment for faculty and students to incubate ideas, build confidence and, ultimately, succeed as entrepreneurs. The Lubar’s gave UWM $10 million in 2015 to support the center’s development.
