Long-standing member of downtown community to move to Associated Bank River Center in 2024
MILWAUKEE–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The Marcus Corporation (NYSE: MCS) announced today that it will be relocating and expanding its corporate and divisional headquarters to the Associated Bank River Center located at 111 East Kilbourn Avenue in Milwaukee. The company will move to its new location in late spring or early summer 2024.
“For more than 70 years, The Marcus Corporation has called downtown Milwaukee home,” said Gregory S. Marcus, chief executive officer of The Marcus Corporation. “Through our businesses, our philanthropy, our community service, and our workplace, we remain deeply committed to contributing to the vibrancy of our hometown. We like to say we are in the ‘people getting together’ business. I’m thrilled our new offices will do just that for our associates as we work to build great careers and make a difference for those we serve.”
Working with Milwaukee-based Eppstein Uhen Architects, the new 52,000 square foot office space will be built to meet the company’s functional, design and aesthetic specifications. The Associated Bank River Center is nearby many city attractions, including being adjacent to Marcus Hotels & Resorts’ award-winning Saint Kate – The Arts Hotel. The newly renovated office tower also features a 100+ person state-of-the-art conference facility, a tech lounge, health club and a dedicated Associated Bank branch.
“After six years of thoughtful renovation and investment, the Associated Bank River Center today brings together leading Milwaukee arts, finance, business, cuisine and tourism communities under one roof,” said Andy Harmening, president and CEO of Associated Bank. “Like The Marcus Corporation, we have been doing business in Milwaukee for decades, and we are continuing to deepen our investment in this city more and more. With the River Center, we wanted to provide a gathering space that intersects work, play and stay for locals and visitors alike in the heart of downtown. As a result, we’re delighted to welcome The Marcus Corporation and its employees to our world-class facility.”
Approximately 200 Marcus Corporation, Marcus Hotels & Resorts, and Marcus Theatres corporate associates will be based at 111 East Kilbourn Avenue. The company employs more than 3,400 associates in Wisconsin and more than 7,800 across the country. The Milwaukee office of CBRE served as an advisor to The Marcus Corporation on its search for a new corporate headquarters, while Colliers represented Associated Bancorp. The Marcus Corporation’s corporate office relocation follows the prior owner’s sale of the 100 East building, and the buyer’s planned conversion of the building from office to residential.
