About the Building

The Mackie Building is the sister structure to the neighboring Mitchell Building, also built by Alexander Mitchell and designed by Edward Townsend Mix, and was constructed in 1879. This space was originally built to house the Chamber of Commerce and Milwaukee’s grain exchange. People came from all over the world to trade and export wheat in this center, where the very first Trading Pit was used to measure wheat prices.

In 2014, J. Jeffers & Co. purchased the building and converted floors 4, 5, and 6 into apartments, which retain a number of original features. The restoration included the iconic clock tower, lobby and commercial spaces on the first three floors.
