Development approval process

What the city can--and can't--do

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 apartment building" (or anything for that matter).

Once a private developer has committed to a project the City can influence the design but we're limited by the developer. They aren't required to invest their money; they can always pull out. Ultimately we endeavor to make the proposed building as great as it can be, or at least to the level of acceptability.
What neighbors can do 
  1. Tell me and your neighborhood association your opinions.
  2. Email your opinion to review commissions below. 
  3. Speak at public hearings of those bodies.  Ask your neighbors to do the same.

Version 3 

They've released a new design with the previously 6-story portion of the building now 5 stories, and changing the material palette of that section to match the rest of the building, and with 9 fewer apartments.

You can download the new plans here. 

Also, while the developer will present these plans to the UDC for feedback at the 4/8 meeting, they can ultimately decide which version to submit for approval at later meetings outlined below.

Version 2

Terrence Wall is proposing a development for 1004 & 1032 Park St (the triangle site south of the intersection of Park street and Fish Hatchery road). Terrence and his team are unvieled their second design iteration on 3/5. They will be presenting their project to the Urban Design Commission Wednesday 3/11 4:30 Madison Municipal Building LL-110. This meeting will be purely informational for the UDC and developer, the UDC won't be making any decisions or voting on the item.

This version of the proposal consists of 3 connected 3, 5, and 6-story apartment buildings with ground-level retail, internal parking and one level of underground parking.

The buildings have a total of 173 units between efficiencies and "Townhouses", all market rate. There is 9,330 sf of ground floor commercial space, with a total of 177 parking spaces in the interior of the ground floor and 1 story underground.















Version 1 (for reference)

Terrence Wall is proposing a development for 1004 & 1032 Park St (the triangle site south of the intersection of Park street and Fish Hatchery road). The project is still in an early stage and hasn't been formally submitted to the city. Terrence and his team are working on revisions based on the neighborhood meeting I hosted on 1/19, and will present the new design draft on 3/5.

The current proposal consists of 3 connected 4, 5, and 6-story apartment buildings with ground-level retail, internal parking and one level of underground parking.

The buildings have a total of 174 units between efficiencies and 2 bedrooms + den, all market rate. The commercial area is 13,400 sf. The parking holds 67 cars on the ground floor and 113 on the underground level.


3414 Monroe Street

Update: The developer as decided to voluntarily bring the project to the UDC at the 4/8 Meeting. 4:30PM at 215 Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd. Room LL-110 (Madison Municipal Building)

Version 3

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.

Version 2 (for reference)

Version 2 was a 3-story, 22,000 square foot building that would house 16 apartments between 1 and 3-bedrooms, 16 on-site parking spaces, and 3,200 square feet of office space on the ground floor.

The site currently has a small office building (that formerly housed the Madison Opera offices) that the Landmarks Commission found to have historical merit. Further, the property is adjacent to a historic landmark, the Plough Inn. Due two those criteria the Plan Commission will review the project, though it conforms with zoning and requires no Conditional Use.

An independant traffic study was conducted and found that if the project is build as intended it would not add any additional parked cars to the area on nearby streets if parking is shared between residents and office workers, between 9am-4pm. A copy of the full report is here.
