Major housing, retail development proposed for Madison's north side

The Rifkin Group is proposing a mixed-use project with housing, offices, and commercial uses — including a grocery and restaurants — on 61 acres of mostly vacant farmland on Madison’s north side, according to a story in the Wisconsin State Journal

The developer will seek the city’s permission to demolish a rental farmhouse and several outbuildings on the former Raemish Farm property, bounded by Packers and North Sherman avenues between the Tennyson Ridge and Whitetail Ridge neighborhoods.

The proposal includes:

  • Multifamily housing and commercial uses — a grocery, coffee shop, restaurants, and offices — on 14 acres fronting Packers Avenue;
  • Row housing with rental units along North Sherman;
  • Lots designed for owner-occupied, four-unit townhouses;
  • Single-family home lots;
  • A stormwater management basin and protected wetlands; and
  • A boulevard at the entry of the development along Packers Avenue.

The site is currently zoned for agriculture and the council would have to approve new zoning prior to development.
