Covering four city blocks, the Midwest Airlines Center was one of the largest design-build project ever undertaken in Milwaukee. It provides the city with 200,000 square feet of exhibit space and 15,000 square feet of meeting rooms, as well as a 38,000 square-foot ballroom.

Midwest Airlines Center's exterior design is symbolic of the cityscapes of Milwaukee. The structural steel building is clad in brick masonry, precast concrete and glazed curtainwall. Interior walls and doors feature a variety of decorative finishes and trim, accented by metal railings and fixtures. Wood and fabric wall finishes are used extensively in the ballroom, along with recessed chandeliers. State-of-the-art features, including fiber optics, satellite links, electronic signage, bar code readers, automated billing and imaging systems, as well as complex sound and security systems, were incorporated into the facility.
