I've written about the possibility of a Kohl's in Downtown Milwaukee before, but now the stakes are a bit higher as Kohl's Corporation is considering building a new headquarters.

Should the retailer, currently housed in Menomonee Falls, with nearly 70,000 employees (according to Fortune) and 1,097 stores in 49 states, have a presence in Wisconsin's largest city?

A store would seem like a good play, but since many of its employees live in and around greater Downtown – why not build a satellite Kohl's campus or a full office park in Downtown Milwaukee?

Just look at the careers site, it sure seems like the company loves Downtown and Milwaukee.  Kohl's has a photo studio in the city and a design office in NYC, so a more urban location for its brand would seem to fit.

But where would Kohl's build?

Thoughts on a location for Downtown Kohl's corporate office? Use the talkback feature.
