Pabst Brewing Campus

In 1996, the Pabst Brewing Company ceased operations at their Milwaukee location after 150 years of brewing iconic American beers. Rather than strip the area of its character by demolishing seven blocks of beautiful cream city brick structures, Joseph J. Zilber dreamed of creating “Milwaukee’s next great neighborhood” rooted in sustainability and historic preservation.

Balestrieri helped fulfill Mr. Zilber’s dream by assisting in the repurposing of several buildings on the site. The area has become a thriving community complete with multiple apartment developments, hotels, office buildings, breweries, a school, and a student residential property.
