New plans unveiled for Madison Dairy site on East Washington Avenue.  (Wisconsin State Journal, 9/12/2015)
Stone House Development has submitted plans with the city for a 10-story building that would include 200 apartments, more than 12,000 square feet of retail space and a parking facility for 355 vehicles on the former Madison Dairy Produce Co. site, 1000 East Washington Ave.


This stretch of the East Wash streetscape has changed considerably during the past few years.  (Constellation in foreground, Galaxie in center-right background.)

Although the development is within the City of Middleton, it is also within the attendance area of the Waunakee Community School District.

All photos by Retiring Guy.  (This one taken last Thursday, the rest today.)

The red arrow marks the approximate position of where I stood when taking the above photo.


I stood next to this metal sculpture while snapping this photo.



The development will eventually extend beyond the silo seen in the distance center of this photo.



The development is once again a site of this year's Madison Area Builders Association Parade of Homes.  



Multi-family housing, too.
