Madison, Wis. — CRG is set to break ground on Chapter at Madison, a 534-bed student housing development located on Regent Street near the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus.
The 10-story community will offer 165 furnished units in studio, one-, two-, three-, four- and five-bedroom configurations, alongside 2,200 square feet of ground floor retail space. Shared amenities will include a fitness center, yoga studio, private study spaces, conference rooms, a rooftop terrace and lounge, grilling stations, fire pits and an underground parking garage.
Construction on the project will begin in December with completion scheduled for 2024. The community was designed by the Lamar Johnson Collaborative, a subsidiary of CRG parent Clayco. Wisconsin-based Findorff Construction will serve as the general contractor for the project.
CRG worked alongside Alder Juliana Bennett; Madison’s Department of Planning, Community & Economic Development; the Italian Workmen’s Club; the Campus Area Neighborhood Association; and other local stakeholders on ways to honor the local community within the development. Plans include a mural of the community depicting people and events that had an impact on the surrounding Greenbush neighborhood, as well as a cultural exhibit along the first-floor corridor detailing the history of the 800 block of Regent Street and other local historic milestones.
The development site is currently home to the former Buckingham’s Bar & Grill at 802 Regent St.; Faith Community Bible Church at 826 Regent St.; the former Fraboni’s Italian Specialties and Delicatessen at 822 Regent St.; and two rental houses at 816 and 818 Regent St. All buildings have been acquired and are slated for demolition.
