Catalyst recently completed construction on an historic renovation in the Walker’s Point neighborhood of Milwaukee as part of a project for Arts @ Large, a Milwaukee non-profit providing community students and their families equitable access to educational experiences centered around the arts.

The structure was originally built as an apartment building by entrepreneur Patrick Cudahy in 1891 and over the more than 100 years since has served as a meat market, a tavern, a branch location of the St. Vincent de Paul Society, a tailor shop, and an electric sign company.

The completed, Catalyst Construction-managed building renovation project turned the space into a vibrant community center for Arts @ Large. The revitalized facility now includes a student art gallery and café, a professional development hub, art studios, and non-profit incubator studios as well as renovations including new reinforcing wood framed basement floors, new exterior windows, tuck pointing, roofing, new stair shafts, a new elevator, and a bevy of minor site improvements.
