MILWAUKEE, WI, UNITED STATES, May 3, 2019 / — Coworking company Expansive is expanding into Milwaukee with the purchase of 790 N. Milwaukee Street. The Chicago-based company acquired the Cathedral Square building on April 30 and plans to renovate it to provide modern and affordable workspace. Pre-leasing is already underway for private offices, SmartSuites™, and coworking memberships. “With our location in Madison opening this June, we’re excited to further our offerings in Wisconsin for entrepreneurs and small business owners as well as enterprise companies,” said Bill Bennett, Founder of Expansive.

Built in 1985, the 69,523-square-foot building will feature six floors of state-of-the-art workspace. By purchasing the buildings where it operates, Expansive is able to invest in infrastructure improvements including fiber internet and custom-built suites for up to 500-person teams, all while keeping pricing lower than competitors. In January, the company debuted its SmartSuites™, technology-enhanced private suites featuring a combination of private offices and collaborative open space, kitchen, conference room, and technologies such as Alexa-enabled sound system and biometric keypad entry.

“We are drawn by Milwaukee’s supportive environment for small business,” said Bennett. “The city’s strong growth in recent years, particularly in the East Town area, makes it the perfect place for Expansive to serve a diverse mix of entrepreneurs and business owners.”

Expansive members get 24/7 building access, a vibrant coworking lounge, direct fiber internet, all utilities, an espresso bar, local beer on tap, modern furnishings, and community events included in rent. With coworking memberships starting at $129 a month, private offices starting at $400 a month, and office suites as low as $225 per employee a month, Expansive provides small businesses, enterprise firms, and entrepreneurs with high-caliber amenities at an affordable price.
