Celebrating 414 Day
As you walk through the halls at the Milwaukee Art Museum, or take in the views of Lake Michigan at Discovery World, do you ever stop and wonder how these Milwaukee gems got here in the first place? Could you imagine Milwaukee without them?
Milwaukee Day, or 414 Day (Milwaukee’s area code) is an entire day dedicated for Milwaukeeans to celebrate the accomplishments, traditions and unique spirit of our city.
Since 1961, along with our clients and partners, GRAEF has been a part of growing and developing the Milwaukee community and skyline.
As you celebrate 414 Day this year, consider safely exploring or taking the time to learn about the history of a few of the many Milwaukee landmarks that we are very proud to have been involved with engineering:
- Discovery World
- General Mitchell International Airport
- Hoan Bridge Reconstruction
- The Moderne
- Milwaukee Art Museum
- Milwaukee Art Museum Cudahy Gardens
- Milwaukee Buck’s Parking Structure
- MSOE Diercks Hall
- St. John’s on the Lake
- Wisconsin Center District
For nearly 60 years, GRAEF has operated our office within the city of Milwaukee. Today, we’re proud to call The Avenue our home base as a commitment to the revitalization of Westown. When the workday is done, you will often find our staff out volunteering, supporting local businesses, and enjoying the city where it all started for GRAEF.
GRAEF is proud to be part of Milwaukee’s history and look forward to what is in store for the future. Happy 414 Day, Milwaukee!
