Progress report: New GRAEF-USA offices in the former Grand Avenue

Back in March, we took you inside the former Shops of Grand Avenue mall to show you how work was progressing on converting part of the space into the new 3rd Street Market Hall food hall, which is slated to open by the end of year.

At the same time, work was underway at The Avenue (which is what the building is now called) on the new national headquarters of GRAEF-USA, Inc., a Milwaukee-based engineering, design and planning firm.

Those offices will be up on the third floor, where the old mall food court was located. But don't expect to recognize it as renovation work will include closing off and adding floor space in what was the three-story atrium at the Grand Avenue.

GRAEF's space will include a mezzanine with meeting space, as well as an outdoor deck that overlooks Wisconsin Avenue. You may recall that the food court had a similar outdoor space.

Here are some images of how the space looks now...

And here are some renderings showing how it will look when work is complete...
