Constructed in 1929, the Gas Light Building is a 20 floor Art Deco building designed by architects Eschweiler & Eschweiler. The exterior of the building consists of granite and brick and graduates in color from dark to light. The interior features intricate bronze metal work and green colored marble. Known for its flame on top, the Gas Light Building was used as a navigational tool by ships traveling along Lake Michigan, but is most recognized as a featured icon in weather forecasts.

 

Step inside this Milwaukee icon and see the beautiful terrazzo floors, decorative bronze metal work and marble wainscoting. Guided tours of the 17th floor will provide stunning views of Lake Michigan and surrounding downtown scenery. Register to win a personalized tour of the flame (tour to be held at a later date).
