Property owner backs out of shelter property sale

The owner of a site that was to be purchased by the city of Madison to build an emergency men’s homeless shelter has backed out of the sale, according to a report from The Capital Times.

Plans announced earlier this week said the vacant two-story property, at 4111 East Towne Blvd., would be purchased by the city to develop the shelter. However, the owner is withdrawing his signature from the purchase and sale agreement.
