The Velo project is in the Schenk-Atwood area, one of Madison’s most eclectic neighborhoods with great restaurants, bars, music and shopping, which also sits directly adjacent to the Capital-City Bike Path.  This apartment building is a perfect blend of studio, one and two bedroom luxurious apartments designed in a modern/industrial architectural style with many units featuring enormous windows and vaulted ceilings.  The community rooftop terrace with seating and gas grill and the community lounge with full kitchen are gathering spaces for all residents to enjoy and come together. This building is a much more welcome structure to the neighborhood than the former Capital Water Softener building that previously occupied this site.  The architecture is a blend of traditional masonry with metal panel accents and curved roof elements that relate back to the industrial history of this part of the neighborhood.  The walk-up units on first floor also provide an active connection to the streets and the surrounding homes.
