Original 5/20/2017 post, 'The 8Twenty Park neighborhood", starts here.

Tweeted from the Dane County Housing Summit, which focused on the critical need for affordable housing in close proximity to where people work, something very much lacking in Dane County.  (Watch the entire event here.)

At which point I googled the appropriate search terms and found this article: 

Growing pains: As Madison adds housing, neighbors fear zoning and established plans aren't being honored. (Capital Times, 12/9/2015)
Land-use plans as a red herring.  “We are not opposed to development,” said Rothburd, who lives a few blocks away from 8Twenty Park [an affordable housing development]. “We are opposed to rezoning at the expense of our stable communities. We are opposed to having those developments along the corridor take bites out of the neighborhood. And that’s what 820 Park Street is going to do to Greenbush.”

The construction site for 8Twenty Park is in the foreground.  The sprawling St. Mary's Hospital complex is in the distance.  (Photo taken from base of orange arrow; see map below.)

Another view of St. Mary's from the intersection of Haywood Drive and High Street.  The entrance to the UW Arboretum is two blocks to the left.  (red arrow)

There's a significant amount of multi-unit housing in this neighborhood.  (yellow arrow)

View of excavation and foundation walls, with St. Mary's at right.  (Green arrow; cloud cover moved in very quickly.)
