What's coming to the Madison restaurant scene this fall.  (Capital Times, 8/30/2017)
To the west, Brasserie V owners Matt and Andrea Van Nest plan to open their second restaurant, Longtable Beer Cafe, in Middleton by the first week of October. Like the Van Nest's popular bar on Monroe Street, Longtable will focus on craft beer, seating about 100 people inside at communal tables.

Look closely.  You'll see a clock on the tower.

A few of the apartments are occupied, but it doesn't appear as though people are clamoring to sign leases, perhaps the price T. Wall has to pay for promoting his project as "at the forefront of luxury and style".

This not-quite-courtyard space will be used for outdoor seating for one of the restaurants on the Hubbard Avenue side of the building.

May 7, 2016.  A week's worth of demolition.

5/5/2016.  A beautiful day to demolish a 35-year-old building.

Terrence Wall begins major redevelopment in downtown Middleton.  (, 5/4/2016)
After staging a ceremonial partial demolition last week, developer Terrence Wall on Tuesday resumed demolition of Old Middleton Centre to make way for his latest development, which will add more than 200 apartments to the area bounded by Elmwood, Hubbard and Terrace avenues and Parmenter Street.

And the walls came tumbling down.

Compare the view #1 below.

Rubble close-up

Original 4/23/2016 post starts here.

The 35-year-old retail/office development of six similarly designed buildings never found its mojo from the start.

1818 Parmenter Street and 7507 Hubbard Avenue locations in particular.

View #1.  As you can see from the windows, the demo has already begun.

View #2.  

View #3:

Next year:  7611 Hubbard and 7609 Elmwood
2018:  1800 Parmenter and 7600 Terrace.

The new T. Wall development will also include office and retail as well as 200+ apartments.
