State Street Campus Garage Mixed-Use Project


The City of Madison is pursuing an exciting new development opportunity that would be a mixed-use project containing an intercity bus terminal, public parking structure, ground floor retail, and housing - the State St Campus Garage Mixed-Use Project.

The State Street Campus Garage at 415 N. Lake Street was constructed in 1964 and contains 510 regular stalls, 7 disabled stalls, 24 bicycle spaces, 16 motorcycle/moped spaces, 2 electric vehicle charging stations, and 5 spaces for authorized vehicles (City staff, cashiers, etc).  The 542 space addition at 430 N. Frances Street was constructed in 1982.   The original structure is approaching the end of its useful life and has become financially challenging for the City to continue to invest in its ongoing maintenance. 

The site is bounded by Lake Street on the west, a group of buildings that front on State Street on the north, N. Frances Street on the east, and a group of buildings that front on University Avenue on the south.  See Figure 1 below. Hawthorne Court runs north/south between the existing parking structures.
