Lap of luxury. Posh student apartments upend Madison housing market.  (Isthmus, 5/12/2016)
And there are even more projects in the pipeline. The Lux, a 12-story, 160-unit apartment complex, opens this summer on West Johnson Street; Uncommon, a 10-story, 179-unit building on North Bassett Street, opens this fall; and The James, a 12-story, 367-unit complex built by the same developer as The Hub, opens next summer on University Avenue.

Domain and Lux residents practically share balconies.

Bathed in sunlight.

Some Domain residents now have newly shady, almost shaved balconies.

Needed to photograph this behemoth from a different perspective.

The Lux: 

Continuing to rise.  (9/24/2015)

The structure starts to rise.  (8/10/2015)

The view looking east on West Johnson.  (Not a Findorff crane.)  That's the Domain just beyond the construction site.

The foundation work is well underway.  (6/19/2015)

And say hello to this new hole in the ground.  (4/3/2015)

Johnson Bend, an upscale high-rise, will be taking shape here.

Original post starts here.

And say hello to 
  • Luxury!
    • Mechanical parking garage!!
      • Rooftop pool!!!

Luxury apartments approved for Downtown.  (Wisconsin State Journal, 11/11/2014)
The Madison Plan Commission approved on a voice vote developer Les Orosz’s proposal for a 12-story, 160-unit apartment building at 425-435 W. Johnson St. The curved building would replace three existing apartment buildings. 

The building’s most notable feature — a roughly $3 million, 150-stall mechanical parking garage — caused a variety of questions from commissioners.

Meet the neighbors!

Here's a video, complete with groovy soundtrack, showing how a mechanical parking system works.
