Gary Grunau is a prolific and award-winning developer of the urban scene, instrumental in many of southeastern Wisconsin’s most innovative urban projects, including the Wisconsin Center, Time Warner, Manpower’s World Headquarters, Schlitz Park, Discovery World, Milwaukee RiverWalk and the Hyatt Regency. Using Schlitz Park as an indicator of change, Gary will describe Milwaukee’s 30 year evolution, dissecting both successes and missed opportunities. Looking ahead, he will share his vision of projects that can propel Milwaukee forward or, in their absence, cause it to stagnate and slide. Gary is well known for sharing his opinion on current affairs so we can expect his entertaining insight on these projects.
