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.
