List of tallest buildings in Milwaukee

The city of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, is home to 118 high-rise buildings or skyscrapers, 53 of which stand at 200 ft or taller. The majority of the city's tallest buildings are located north of the Interstate 794, south of Juneau Avenue, east of Interstate 43, west of Lincoln Memorial Drive. There are additional high-rises extending northward along Lake Michigan; the tallest building in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, is the 42-story, 601 ft tall U. S. Bank Center, completed in 1973; the second-tallest is the 32-story, 550 ft tall Northwestern Mutual Tower and Commons building, completed in 2017. The history of skyscrapers in Milwaukee began with the Pabst Building. Completed in 1891, standing 235 ft tall, it was Milwaukee's first skyscraper, the tallest building in the city until the Milwaukee City Hall was completed four years later; the Pabst Building was demolished in 1981. For nearly eighty years, from 1895 to 1973, City Hall dominated the skyline, was at the time of its completion, the tallest habitable building in the United States.

A significant building boom occurred in the 1960s, resulting in eleven of the top sixteen tallest buildings of the time having been built in that decade, between 1985 and 1991, six of the eight tallest buildings of the time were constructed. But a third significant building boom in the twenty-first century includes the construction of the Moderne, a skyscraper with luxury condominiums, the 833 East Michigan office building, the Potawatomi Casino Hotel, the Northwestern Mutual Tower and Commons, the 34-story, 387 ft tall 7Seventy7 Residential tower, all built since 2012.

Another six high-rises have been proposed since the beginning of 2017.

Field gun competition

The Royal Navy's field gun competition is a contest between teams from various Royal Navy commands, in which teams of sailors compete to transport a field gun and its equipment over and through a series of obstacles in the shortest time. The competition evolved during the early years of the 20th century; the "Command" format, negotiating walls and a chasm, was held annually at the Royal Tournament in London from 1907 until 1999, apart from the periods during the World Wars. The "Inter-Port" or "Command" Competition was contested by teams from the Royal Navy annually, was a popular item at the Royal Tournament until finishing in 1999; the original "Command" Field Gun is still being run by civilians as Wellington College and Portsmouth Action Field Gun. A second team, Eastbourne Youth Field Gun, established 2017 and a cadet-size formation, is the newest field gun formation in the "Command" format; the "Brickwoods" Field Gun competition started in 1907 after the Brickwoods Brewery donated a magnificent Trophy to the Royal Navy.

This competition involving no obstacles and run on a flat track continues to be competed for on an annual basis at HMS Collingwood as part of the HMS Collingwood Open day. The Birmingham Tattoo, held yearly in the city of Birmingham hosts an inter-service field gun challenge as part of their programme; the format of the competition and drill, based on the Brickwoods competition, changes due to the fact that the crews run on polished concrete surfaces. The track length is fractionally shorter due to the size of the arena. A spin-off, the Junior Leaders Field Gun Competition, using the Brickwoods format, was held for the 1st time in 2007 and is still held today; the origins of the field gun competition lie in the Second Boer War in South Africa. The legendary story tells of the siege of the British garrison in Ladysmith in 1899. In support of the British Army, the Royal Navy landed guns from HMS Terrible and Powerful to help in the relief of the siege; the Naval Brigade transported guns over difficult terrain and brought them into action against the Boers.

The Royal Navy landed two 4.7-inch guns and four 12-pounder naval guns creating improvised field guns using makeshift gun carriages. The guns were transported inland by rail and drawn on makeshift carriages by oxen. For the final part of the journey, sailors from the Naval Brigade manhandled the guns over difficult terrain. One story tells of sailors carrying one of the 12-pounder guns for 2 miles after one of the wheels collapsed; the siege of Ladysmith lasted for 120 days until February 1900. On their return home, the sailors from the Naval Brigade paraded their guns through London and appeared at the Royal Naval and Military Tournament at the Agricultural Hall, Islington. Displays of field gun drill continued in subsequent years. A precursor to the competition lay in the presentation of Field Gun'Evolutions' including one performed by Miss Weston’s Naval Boy’s Brigade from Portsmouth at the Royal Albert Hall on 21 October 1905 as part of the Centenary Commemoration of the Battle of Trafalgar.

A film clip of this evolution survives from the period, filmed by Alfred J West for his popular'Our Navy' film presentations in the early 1900s. The Interport Field Gun competition was established in 1907 and was a highlight of the Royal Tournament until the Last Run in 1999. Information on the period 1908 to 1922 is scanty, but it seems that apart from the periods of war the Brickwood Trophy was competed for each year. There have been many changes to the competition; the 1907 challenge involved a team of 17 scaling a 5-foot-high obstacle on a 75-yard-long course and returning. In 1947 the course consisted of seven "very stiff obstacles" over a distance of 440 yards each way. Today 18 strong teams compete over a total run of 170 yards; the "Brickwoods" trophy itself is a reproduction in silver of a 12-pounder field gun and a gun crew of seven sailors. The names of the winners of the trophy are engraved on small shields up to and including 1961 and plates for winners since 1962. Mounted on a black ebony stand, this was replaced in 1961 by the current polished wooden base.

At this time the winners' shields transferred to the new mounting, although not in the same order as they had appeared on the previous stand. The original stipulation by Brickwood that the trophy was only open to teams from within Portsmouth continued until 1975 when the competition was widened to include bases from around the country; the trophy left Portsmouth Command for the first time in 1978 as a result of HMS Fisgard's win. HMS Gannet's win in 1997 took the trophy to Scotland for the first time. Before the First World War the competition was moved from the RN Barracks to Whale Island, where it continued until 1973. HMS Collingwood itself has had a good record in the competition, having won the Brickwood Trophy 16 times between 1957 and 2006. Records for completing the course have continued to be broken; the Royal Marines set a new record in 1924 of 1 minute 24.40 seconds. This was exceeded in seven subsequent years and in 1938 HMS Excellent achieved 1 minute 13.40 seconds. After the war, with a different course and drill, Victoria Barracks achieved 1 minute 27.40 seconds in 1954.

HMS Collingwood cut that to 1 minute 26.80 seconds in 1962. The record was lowered to 1 minute 19.40 seconds by HMS Daedalus in 1988. HMS Collingwood beat this by running a time of 1 minute 18.80 seconds in 2001. In 2011 HM Naval Base Portsmouth set. Brickwood maintained a
