About the MGIC Building

The “inverted pyramid” architectural design of MGIC’s 4-story headquarters has made it one of Milwaukee’s most unique buildings since its completion in 1973.

Architect engineers for the development were Fitzhugh Scott Architects, Inc. and Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, who also designed such famous works as the Hancock Building and Willis Tower (originally known as the Sears Tower) in Chicago. The building showcases Warren Platner designed interior features and museum-quality works by artists Alicia Penalba and Sheila Hicks.

Learn more about MGIC and their mission to help make homeownership possible, in Milwaukee and all across the country.
