Madison School and Community Recreation to open largest-ever facility on west side 

Madison School and Community Recreation (MSCR) will have a soft opening for its biggest facility yet on June 19 at 7333 West Towne Way, the Wisconsin State Journal reports. 

The new facility will be 30,000 square feet and house dance studios, art rooms, multipurpose areas, two fitness spaces, and office space. It will also include electricity in the floor for sewing machines and soldering stations, and areas for chemical mixing and kiln firing. 

Construction began in December, following 2020 plans that responded to MSCR’s outgrowth of the former Hoyt School and Odana Road locations. MSCR’s activities, programs, and equipment have also been hindered by its previous dependence on available school space, with daytime classes and after-school sports taking precedence. 

Design and construction of the new facility came out to around $3.5 million.
