BMO Harris Bank Sherman Park Branch | Milwaukee, WI

The new BMO Harris Branch Office at 3637 W. Fond du Lac Avenue replaces the former branch which the company acquired in 1959 and has been a fixture in the community for almost 90 years. The 2,200-square-foot branch replaces the 20,000-square-foot branch and offices at its previous location across the street, which was burned during the civil unrest in Sherman Park in August 2016.

The exterior was designed to take advantage of its unique corner lot. The interior, designed by another architect, emphasizes that the Sherman Park Branch is BMO Harris Banks’s first Smart Branch in Wisconsin. It includes Smart ATMs and video conferencing to provide on-demand access to specialized bank professionals.

Harbor House | Milwaukee, WI
