    WOW! To compare part two and part one of these UWM Fresh water posts really makes this seem possible. Is that the design they will use? It’s the only one that I have seen.

  2. Thanks spirit of the lake!

    The design was actually created by a member of Greener Milwaukee, Carl Cummings. It certainly has a resemblance to the Marina Barrage in Singapore for the first UWM post doesn’t it. However the our roof will be a public spectacle, if not an amenity AND a green roof. IMHO I think if both solar panels, a green roof walkway, and powerful residential wind turbines would resonate through architectural circles and really make waves.

    There will be more rendering released at a later time, but thanks for your interest and support. I think it’s likely that if we pass ideas Milwaukeeans think of FOR Milwaukee, we’ll get people excited about this spot & help put Milwaukee back on the map as a beverage capital of the world. The Fresh Water capital, that is. Thx đŸ˜‰
