Historic Pabst Brewery For Sale - Cheap!

Pabst Brewery, Building 20, $2.1m

The historic Pabst brewery stretches over 20 acres of downtown Milwaukee and is being redeveloped into chunks of new urbanism. Though the brewery will undoubtedly become a cluster of uninspiring retail stores, hotels and chain restaurants, this tacky fate is far superior to the brewery being torn down. But, do not despair, now is your chance to buy a spectacularly collapsing old brick building to recast as your secret headquarters.

For $28 a square foot, you can buy building 20:
Historic Pabst Brewery in Milwaukee offers a hotel conversion in 74,000 sq. ft. of space. Hotel rooms, restaurant, and banquet space. The space features 40 ft. ceilings, copper brew kettles, cream city brick, and a 12-x-40-ft. stained glass window. Also available: 28,000 sq. ft. of land adjacent to site.
Of course, the purchase price is but a mere rounding error in the total cost of rehabilitation, but the tantalizingly low asking price is adequate justification to start picturing your office in an old copper kettle! Government mind control brain waves be damned!
