5 Wise Workshop
The 5 Wise Workshop Development is a historic property located at 3524 West National Avenue in Milwaukee’s Silver City neighborhood. The first floor was renovated into office space and the second floor remains two residential units. The ~3,200 square foot building was built in 1916 and originally housed a jeweler. For the last 33 years the building has operated as Engine Blade and Prop, an outboard motor and propeller repair business.
5 Wise Coworking occupies the first floor and serves all types of individuals and organizations. Emphasis is placed on supporting entrepreneurs and artists who are starting businesses and the leaders of existing small businesses. Social enterprises (those that incorporate elements of both economic and community development) are also priority clients. Individuals and new, emerging, and small businesses with social missions stand to benefit from a platform of professional resources and a network of innovative peers. Fix Development served as a co-development consultant to the primary leader who was the driver of this project Tim Syth of Contexture.
