DEVELOPMENT APPROVAL PROCESS
Development is driven by private investment. The City has a lot of "no" power but very limited power to force action. We'd say "no" if a foundry asked to build on Park St. but the City cannot tell a developer, "You must build...an apartment building" (or anything for that matter). The City's updated Standards for Review can be found here.
- Tell me and your neighborhood association your opinions.
- Email your opinion to review commissions below.
- Speak at public hearings of those bodies. Ask your neighbors to do the same.
- Urban Design Commission for design. Send comments to email@example.com.
- Plan Commission for land use. Send comments to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Common Council if final approval is required. Email email@example.com
820 South Park Street
Project Description: JT Klein Company, Inc. is proposing an affordable housing development adjacent to St. Mary's Hospital. The proposed development would include affordable housing for individuals, families and seniors in a multi-family building along S. Park Street, Delaplaine Court, S. Brooks Street and Haywood Drive. There would also be a small portion of market-rate apartments.
Steering Committee: A group of neighbors from Greenbush and Bay Creek are serving on a project steering committee to delve into this and help provide in-depth input. This was the first presentation to the steering committee on the project, on 7/29/15. We will also host two full neighborhood meetings.

The Green Project, 1906 Monroe Street
This proposal includes demolition of the existing building and construction of a four-story, 12,000 square foot multi-use building. The first three floors would be commercial including space for existing Monroe Street businesses, the Knight Foundation, The Fit, and a lunch counter/ butcher/bakery proposed by Underground Food Collective. The fourth floor would have apartments.
Answers to questions which were asked at the neighborhood meeting:
- Shadowlines of building: The solar shading time lapse video shows how the shadowlines will travel across the neighborhood during the winter solstice (day where the sun will be at its lowest point on the horizon at noon) can be viewed here.
- How much higher this building will be than the Steve Brown Apartment building: This building will be about 10' higher than the Steve Brown building (approximately the same elevation as the light colored brick building across the street from the Steve Brown Apartments)
This project will be before the Plan Commission on 11/2.

Patrick Corcoran is proposing an updated design that was shared with the neighborhood on 2/5. The new proposed building is 25,800 sf above ground, 10,000 sf below ground, includes 19 apartments (studio to 3-bedroom), 3,400sf of commercial space, 30 parking spaces (21 below ground), 25 bicycles spaces, 4 moped parking spaces, and a public dog watering station. The massing of the building as compared to the previous design is pulled back from the Arbor house, moving the removed mass to create a 4th floor stepped back on all sides. The materials are cedar, natural plaster, and masonry.
The project will go before the Plan Commission at a public hearing on 4/22 4:30PM at 215 Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd. Room LL-110 (Madison Municipal Building)
Depending on the recommendation of the Plan Commission, it's likely to then go to the Common Council on 5/6 for the final public hearing and vote.
