Architecture Firm Moving to Yahara Riverfront Redevelopment

MADISON — JLA Architects announced today it will be moving its Madison office to the new mixed-used development “The Current” on the Yahara River in Monona. The Madison-based firm, founded in 2007, has outgrown their current eastside location.

The move to Monona represents another important step in the firm’s growth after their expansion into Milwaukee with the opening of their Third Ward office in 2017. As JLA continues to evolve, its aim is to keep its offices linked through their experienced teams and high-quality work to ensure the best experience for clients.

JLA has designed ‘The Current’ with developer Galway Companies as the first phase of the Yahara Commons Development. “We’ve enjoyed working with the City of Monona on ‘The Current’ and look forward to being a part of this vibrant community,” said Adam Fredendall, Madison office director and vice president.

“JLA is always looking for creative and collaborative thinkers to join our Madison and Milwaukee teams. Much like our Milwaukee location, the Monona office design has been inspired by a culture that recognizes team members are our number one asset” said Susan Pierce Jacobsen, Business Administrative Director.
