Honey Creek Corporate Center I
Honey Creek Corporate Center consists of four Class A office buildings that together make up the 18th largest office park in the Greater Milwaukee area. Greywolf Partners, Inc. has been involved in managing The Honey Creek Corporate Center since 2010, and has been the owner of the office park since buying out the buildings completely in early 2015. Tenants of the Honey Creek buildings enjoy access to several amenities including a common area conference room, break area, full service restaurant, and work out facility to name a few.
Honey Creek I primarily houses engineering and environmental service offices.
We are concerned about energy management in all of our properties, so when we heard about the resources available through the Milwaukee Better Buildings Challenge we pledged several of our own buildings. By doing so, we hope to motivate our tenants to become more energy efficient and our clients to pledge their properties as well.

Since the building's 2012 baseline, Honey Creek Corporate Center I's Source EUI has seen an overall decrease. After a significant drop in the first few years, and slight increase in the past few, the building's current energy usage is just barely above the building's 20% reduction goal.
- LEDs - replaces old light bulbs with LEDs as existing tenants move out before new ones move in
- LED highlighting and uplights in the parking lot - replaced existing high pressure sodiums in 2014/2015 and received financing through the City based on the energy savings
With limited control over already rented out spaces, Greywolf Partners utilizes their own office in the Honey Creek Corporate Center as an example to future tenants about the benefits of LED lighting, and swaps out old bulbs with LEDs anytime an existing tenant moves out of a space.
Greywolf Partners also plans to work with the City to reglaze the exterior of the building that faces the highway to assist with noise control and building envelope, pending a City project to expand the road in the direction of the buildings.
