City Row


Madison, WI

The first WHEDA project in the state of Wisconsin to utilize TCAP funds, City Row provides multi-family housing through the selective demolition and renovation of 19 historic homes. 83 dwelling units are styled within townhomes and apartment units on the urban site. The individual two- or three-bedroom townhomes welcome residents with generous porches that emphasize the pedestrian level of the street. This pedestrian level extends to the central courtyard. Hardscape to allow for intensive use in all seasonal conditions, the courtyard is surrounded by landscape lawns that are not only visually pleasing but aid in storm water management. A community building also provides a common room that opens onto the central courtyard. Terraced gardens are in the heart of the courtyard, providing both management-maintained and tenant-maintained garden plots. A certified Green Build Home and the first Energy Star qualified multi-family high-rise building in Wisconsin, City Row has become an integral precedent for dignified housing in the City of Madison.
