The Madison Common Council approved an 11-story, mixed-use office tower from developer Curt Brink after the city’s first glare study showed the building wouldn’t impede drivers or nearby businesses.

The building, and the newly opened Hotel Indigo, are phases of Brink’s Archipelago Village in the 900 block of East Washington Avenue. Two buildings, at 945 E. Washington Ave. and 924 E. Main St., will be demolished to make way for construction, set to begin in July. The ground floor will include commercial space with offices above and 630 parking stalls. The fifth floor will include a green roof over the parking structure with grass and trees at the top.

The building’s completion is set for the end of 2020, according to an update in the Wisconsin State Journal.
