III. Thursday: Community Meeting on The Meadowlands Multi-Family Residences

Exterior rendering of The Meadowlands Residences

This is a development proposal for 6810-6814 Milwaukee Street, 1 Wind Stone Drive, and 45 Wind Stone Drive. KCG Development, LLC proposes to construct The Meadowlands, which would consist of four multi-family buildings with a total of 216 apartments, and seven townhomes. The multi-family buildings would be three to four stories tall, and the townhomes would be two stories tall. This will be a mix of one, two and three bedroom units. 

Meeting date/location
Thursday, August 8, 2019, 6:30 pm
Door Creek Church, Room 108, 6602 Dominion Drive

The development team and City staff will be on hand to provide information and answer questions.

This proposal includes units that are workforce housing. This is a subset of affordable housing that targets slightly higher incomes than other forms of affordable housing. In this case, these are individuals making 50-70 percent of the average median income. 

For a single person in the City of Madison, this is an income between $32,100 and $44,940 as of September 2018. An example of rent within this range is $963/month for a 1-bedroom apartment, and $1,101/month for a 2-bedroom.

More information on this proposal can be found in their submitted documents.

The designs are toward the end of the document.

This proposal is now planned to go before the Plan Commission on August 26 and the Common Council on September 3.
