3 new developers offer mixed-use plans for Judge Doyle Square
The city of Madison received three competing proposals for part of the ongoing Judge Doyle Square redevelopment downtown.
According to a Wisconsin State Journal report, Gebhardt Development, Mandel Group, and Stone House Development each submitted plans for the private part of the massive project, and as requested, each includes more affordable units.
Gebhardt Development proposes a $52 million mixed-use project with 196 apartments and 26,000 square feet of commercial space, with 78 units set aside for renters with household incomes at or below 60 percent of Dane County median for a family of three.
Milwaukee-based Mandel Group submitted a $38.2 million plan with 144 apartments and 7,000 square feet of retail space. It calls for 29 apartments for renters earning at or less than 80 percent of the median income for a family of three.
Stone House Development submitted a $40 million plan with 159 apartments and 7,000 square feet of retail space, and 37 units for those earning at or less than 80 percent of county median income.
Talks continue with Beitler Real Estate Services of Chicago, originally selected to develop both city blocks until legal snafus arose and Beitler relinquished rights for the Municipal City block to the city for an extra $700,000. Beitler continues on hotel plans for the Government East block.
