Judge Doyle Square apartments set to break ground next spring

After years of back and forth, the Judge Doyle Square apartment complex may finally break ground in June. According to a Capital Times report, negotiations have been completed between the city and Stone House Development for a 161-unit apartment building to break ground June 1 on top of an underground parking ramp, now named the Wilson Street Garage.

The apartments will include ground floor retail and a mix of market-rate and affordable housing scattered throughout. The project also will bring a $30 million increase in new property value to the city.

Of the 161 apartment units, 37 will be a mix of affordable apartments, and the city has agreed to provide up to a $450,000 loan toward the 20 that will be reserved for those with incomes of less than 60 percent of the Dane County median income. The other 17 apartments will be for those earning under 80 percent of the county median income.
