Opus Development Corporation to Expand Weyco Headquarters

MILWAUKEE, Wis. - The Milwaukee office of Opus Development Corporation announced today a project with Weyco Group, Inc. to expand their Glendale, Wisconsin headquarters. Opus will construct a 52,000 square-foot mezzanine to provide additional space needed to accommodate Weyco’s continued growth and expansion.

Weyco, a shoe manufacturer, recently acquired The Combs Company, the owner of Bogs and Rafters footwear brands. The acquisition led to a need for expanded space at the company’s headquarters. Construction on the project is expected to begin this month, with completion scheduled for July 2011. 

“Weyco is an important and growing company in the Milwaukee area,” said Julie Ledger, vice president and general manager, Opus Development Corporation. “We are proud to be able to work with Weyco leadership to increase the efficiencies and capabilities of their headquarters facility.” 

Opus Development Corporation is one of the region’s leading full-service real estate development and design-build firms. Recent notable projects completed by the Milwaukee office include Waukesha’s Shoppes at Fox River, The Honey Creek Corporate Center, multiple buildings at Marquette University, including the new law school, Northwestern Mutual’s Franklin Campus and Oakwood Crossing Business Center in Oak Creek.
