Keep the building boom going Downtown 450x300 1

Madison is close to breaking ground on the $176 million Judge Doyle Square project Downtown.

Well done, city officials, and congratulations to the developer, Beitler Real Estate Services of Chicago. They slowly but surely found a path to approval for this massive and transformative development after a previous proposal for the site fell through.

If all goes well, construction of a 560-stall public parking garage beneath the two-block site will begin this fall. Then three curved glass towers will start to take shape in 2019. They will house a 252-room hotel, about 350 apartments, retail space and a bicycle center.

Also included is an eye-catching art installation. Statues of bicyclists in a shallow pond with running water would give the illusion of movement.
