May 2 Neighborhood Meeting on E. Johnson & N. Butler Redevelopment Proposalposted
On May 2 at 6:30pm, join me for a virtual neighborhood meeting to take a first look at a proposed redevelopment at the corner of E. Johnson and N. Butler Streets. Kaba Baal LLC proposes to demolish four buildings (301 and 305 E. Johnson and 145 and 149 N. Butler) and then construct a new a 4-story residential building with 32 to 48 dwelling units with parking underneath. The developer is seeking City of Madison Forward Housing funds that, if awarded, and financing secured could require most or all residents to have 60% of Dane County Median Income or less with rental rates reduced appropriately. The building is likely to be proposed with a mixture of studios, 1-bedroom, and 2-bedroom units.
The developer will be seeking a Demolition Permit and will need approvals by the Plan Commission and possibly the Urban Design Commission, but formal applications have not yet been filed with the city.
The James Madison Park District of Capitol Neighborhoods, Inc., (CNI), will likely form a neighborhood steering committee sometime after the May 2 meeting, but I encourage you to attend this first meeting to learn more about the proposed redevelopment. Registration for the meeting is required and available here.
