Foxconn Technology Group last July said it planned to soon begin upgrades and modernization to turn its downtown Milwaukee headquarters into a "state-of-the-art facility" showcasing the firm's "continuing innovation in leading-edge technologies," but city records indicate that little work has been done. (Photo: Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance Co.)

Months after Foxconn said it planned to start turning a downtown Milwaukee office building into a state-of-the-art headquarters displaying its “continuing innovation in leading-edge technologies,” city records indicate that little work has been done.

Announcing last July that it was seeking architects and engineers for the project, the firm said its headquarters would “showcase the vibrant AI 8K+5G ecosystem that Foxconn is building.”

And because the headquarters would play a vital role in recruiting “the best and brightest talent” to Foxconn, the company said it would need “a state-of-the-art facility.”

The work was slated to begin in September, Foxconn said.
