Scheduled for completion: March
West Place, at the corner of South Gammon and Mineral Point Roads near West Towne Mall, was originally conceived as a 17-building mix of retail, commercial, and residential spaces. It was to be located on 23 acres that used to be home to Madison College’s west campus.
While that proved to be too ambitious and costly, the project remains grand in scope, notes Tim Cleary of Ideal Builders, which is collaborating on the project.
“This location is a prominent spot in the city that has hosted a number of key employers, educators, and countless citizens of Madison,” says Cleary. “Being a highly viable area of Madison, this redevelopment brings this corner full circle into a revitalized area highlighted by the prominence of Navitus, Lumicera, and retail.”
The project’s $28 million first phase includes an 80,000-square-foot, five-story office building where Navitus Health is relocating its headquarters; a two-story, 30,000-square-foot pharmacy building for Lumicera, Navitus’ specialty pharmacy division; and two retail buildings comprising an additional 5,000 square feet.
The full build-out, expected to take 10 to 15 years, would add eight total buildings and a total of 325,000 square feet to the site, enough for up to 1,000 employees.
