The Overlook at Hilldale consists of two linked four-story apartment buildings with 96 units between them. The buildings appear to step down the sloped site with varied flat roofs. The steps continue as the façade is punctured with individual entries and private porches to first floor townhomes. The exterior materials – high-quality masonry, fiber-cement board, and metal panels – pay respect to the neighboring commercial space while maintaining a modern, residential atmosphere. Funded by Federal Housing Tax Credits and WHEDA funding, and meeting the standards of Wisconsin Green Built Homes, The Overlook brings high-end design to all residents of Madison.
