HotelRED Update: In a turnaround, Madison Plan Commission approves upward expansion

More stories at HotelRED and State Street apartments receive Madison Plan Commission nod.  (Capital Times, 8/15/2016)
HotelRED tried again with another proposal, this time adding two full floors of guest rooms and a “heavily recessed” seventh floor, about half the size, with a rooftop garden, two decks, public event space and a bar and lounge. It would add 39 guest rooms for a total of 66,007 square feet.

HotelRED's 4-story expansion proposal rejected by Madison Plan Commission.  (Wisconsin State Journal, 3/21/2017)
Members unanimously voted to reject a conditional use permit on the plan that would double the floor count and height of the boutique hotel at 1501 Monroe St. The commission cited concerns that the height of the proposed eight-story structure, about 100 feet, conflicts with neighborhood and city plans on how the area should be developed.

The 48-room boutique hotel opened in 2011.

According to Amber Arnold's reporting, Craig Stanley, president of the Vilas Neighborhood Association, sez the project will cause some heartburn in the neighborhood.
