Stone House Development is tearing down the building at 5614 Schroeder Road to build a four-story, U-shaped building. Haker plans to put a restaurant and bar in the new development, which is expected to open next year. That space, on part of the first floor facing the road, will only have 4,000 square feet. The development is set to include 96 units of affordable housing.The owner of the restaurant is considering a name change.

The proposed four-story building by Stone House Development would provide 96 units, 81 or which would be income-restricted for those making between 30 and 60 percent of Dane County median income.
Twenty of the 81 affordable units would be supportive units set aside for veterans and formerly homeless families, and the development has partnered with The Road Home and Dane County Veterans Service to provide supportive services.
The project needs a permit to demolish Babe’s Grill & Bar, currently on the site, as well as several conditional use permits. Designs include almost 4,000 square feet of commercial space slated to become a smaller restaurant.
