Aloft Hotel

This unique, urban hotel in downtown Milwaukee includes 160 guest rooms and 8,000 square feet of retail. The hotel features an indoor pool, restaurant, fitness center, business center, and meeting space for guests to enjoy during their stay.

The 5-story project was constructed on a very tight parcel between the Milwaukee River and Old World 3rd Street downtown. The project included the construction of a riverwalk along the banks of the Milwaukee River.

Despite an additional 6 weeks of foundation for caisson drilling, construction was completed 4 weeks earlier per contract. The project developer was originally over budget on the project; Horizon was able to utilize the design-build process to suggest modifications, realign project scope and budget, and complete a very successful project.
