MILWAUKEE — The Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra is 35 feet closer to finding its new home.

It took about six hours for construction crews to move a seven-story 625-ton wall 35 feet that will eventually be part of the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra's new home.

This time lapse video shows just how crews moved this historic wall while keeping it perfectly in tact.

The wall was apart of the historic Warner Grand Theater. It was moved to open up the performance space, so more of the orchestra could fit on stage.

It's all part of an $89 million renovation project that is expected to be finished in 2020.
