Over 100 shortlisted buildings have won the prestigious 2018 American Architecture Awards® for the best new buildings designed and constructed by American architects in the U.S. and abroad and by international architects for buildings designed and built in the United States.

Belay MKE is a mixed‐use development at the northern edge of downtown Milwaukee, a formally restrained building that combines an 18,000‐square‐foot indoor rock‐climbing gym with 46 small apartment units. The project occupies an urban brownfield site known as Humboldt Yards, where the repair shops of the now‐defunct “Milwaukee Road” Railway were located until the early 1970s. After sitting idle for decades, Humboldt Yard has seen sporadic construction activity in recent years to absorb some of the pressure from the city’s rapidly growing downtown population.
