800 South Block of East Washington Avenue
The City of Madison owns two acres of property within the 800 South Block of East Washington Avenue (“800 South Block”). This property is outlined within the attached air photo. The property is more fully depicted within the two attached surveys.

The City of Madison recently issued a request for proposals for projects within the 800 South Block that included either a StartingBlock or Madison Sustainability Commerce Center project.  The City received one proposal.  Please find a copy of that proposal here:

The Capitol East District Committee has been charged with making a recommendation to the Common Council about whether or not the City should proceed with further negotiations with the developer for this proposal.  Information about Capitol East District Committee meetings is available here.
