The UWM Accelerator on Monday, April 6, 2020 in Wauwatosa. University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee’s initial plan to develop several research buildings at it’s Innovation Campus in Wauwatosa, is dead. A developer now plans to build some office buildings here instead.

Development firm Irgens Partners LLC wants to buy from a UWM affiliate about 29 acres at the Innovation Campus site, east of I-41 and north of West Watertown Plank Road. The firm would pay $5.25 million for the land.

Irgens Partners has conceptual plans to develop a pair of four-story, 140,000-square foot buildings, a two-story, 50,000-square-foot building, a single-level parking structure and a possible future building.
