D6 Items of Interest Week of October 2, 2017

October 1, 2017 10:27 PM

Highlights: The Mayor introduces his 2018 Executive Operating budget on Tuesday. It is on the Council agenda for introduction, #115, but it will not be in legistar until noon on Tuesday. This week starts with Landmarks Commission on Monday. Of note is review of proposed demolition of a building at 11 N Franklin for a proposed hotel. The house was designed by Claude and Starck, local architects from the early 20th C. They also designed the Lamb Building at 114 State St. An adjacent development at 122 State St for a hotel requires an advisory opinion from the Landmarks Commission. Claude and Starck designed many notable buildings in the city including several in District 6 - 1249 Williamson, 812 Jenifer, 1150 Spaight, and 620 S Ingersoll. The proposed redevelopment of 131 S Fair Oaks is at Plan Commission Monday and at Urban Design Commission Wednesday for an advisory recommendation. The big topics at Tuesday's Council meeting are the Edgewater Hotel outdoor entertainment license and an authorization of $2.5M TIF loan for Exact Sciences. Garver Feed Mill is at Board of Public Works Wednesday to authorize bids to haul out leaf mulch and stump grinding materials. Also Wednesday the first Public Information Meeting to get feedback on Atwood reconstruction from Fair Oaks to Cottage Grove Rd. Three items at CDBG on Thursday - allocating $120K in funds for a capital improvement project as part of the Darbo-Worthington-Startkweather planning process, allocating up to $4.5M in Affordable Housing Funds to assist a developer apply for WHEDA tax credits next year- one of the two proposed projects is 134 S Fair Oaks (Stonehouse) and first look at applicants for homeless services RFP. The recipients of the MarketReady program as part of the Public Market planning process will be introduced at Thursday Public Market Development Committee. And finally on Thursday, the MPD Policy and Procedures Review Committee will hold their monthly meeting and the OIR Group will be in town this week. Saturday is the Mayor's Neighborhood Roundtable at Monona Terrace (you should attend!)  Wow- a busy first week of the month!

Landmarks Commission

4:45p room GR 27 CCB (enter at 211 S Carroll St)


1. 48802 1224 Spaight - Second Floor Additon; Third Lake Ridge Hist. Dist.; 6th Ald. Dist.

2. 48804 719 Jenifer - Exterior Alteration - Third Lake Ridge Hist. Dist.; 6th Ald. Dist.

4. 48965 717 E Main (MGE Blount Generating Station Enclosure/Madison Gas & ElectricCo. Powerhouse) - Exterior Alteration in the Third Lake Ridge Hist. Dist.; 6th Ald.

5. 49062 118-122 State - Advisory Recommendation for development adjacent to Landmark, 4th Ald. Dist.
122 State Street Group LLC is proposing to demolish the existing building at 122 State Street and to demolish a portion of the building at 118 State Street (retaining the façade and the front portion of the building) as part of the development of a 9-story hotel with approximately 110 guest rooms and suites, ground floor food and beverage, open air terrace and adjacent meeting space and a rooftop bar and terrace.  The Applicant is proposing to develop the property adjacent to the Lamb Building, 114 State Street, a designated landmark facing State Street and North Carroll Street.

28.144 DEVELOPMENT ADJACENT TO A LANDMARK OR LANDMARK SITE. Any development on a zoning lot adjoining a landmark or landmark site for which Plan Commission or Urban Design Commission review is required shall be reviewed by the Landmark Commission to determine whether the proposed development is so large or visually intrusive as to adversely affect the historic character and integrity of the adjoining landmark or landmark site. Landmark Commission review shall be advisory to the Plan Commission and the Urban Design Commission.

The building at 118 was constructed in 1897 as the original location of the Mautz Brothers Paint Company. Mautz would later become one of Madison's largest industries. The Mautz Building was constructed before the adjacent landmark, Lamb Building. The Lamb Building is architecturally significant because it was designed by master architect, Louis Claude of the local architecture firm of Claude and Starck. The Lamb Building was constructed in 1905 in the Queen Anne style. The Lamb Building is also historically significant because the master architect also had an office in the commercial building. 

The three buildings (114, 118, 122 State Street) have held the top of State Street since 1905. The Lamb Building has been flanked by period buildings that provide it an appropriate immediate context and the proposed development will change that context. 


8. 45700 Buildings Proposed for Demolition - 2017 - 

*11 N Franklin -  designed by Claude and Starck - 7 N Franklin - 506 E Washington - 502 E Washington.  Demolition request to construct a 5 story hotel.

*118 State Street - 122 State Stree?t

Staff Findings: The building at 118 was constructed in 1897 as the original location of the Mautz Brothers Paint Company. Mautz would later become one of Madison's largest industries. The majority of the building is being retained as part of the proposed redevelopment project, but the rear of the building is being demolished. The building at 122 was constructed in 1917 and served as the YWCA. While likely significant to women's history, the exterior alterations that were undertaken in the 1970s have severely damaged the exterior of the building.
