Madison Yards is a mixed-use development on the near west side of Madison, WI. For Block 1, Kahler Slater worked with the developer to create a site that harmoniously blends several building typologies, including a multifamily residential building, corporate office building, boutique retail stores, and standalone corner restaurant. The buildings are strategically positioned to shield a shared multilevel parking deck, which maintains an attractive urban streetscape.
The anchor to the North East corner of the block is a 7-story 160,000-square-foot office building clad with dark bronze metal, matching dark brick, and high-performance bird friendly glazing. Floor to ceiling glass and efficient office floor plates provide office tenants with a modern desirable light filled office interior. The 2-story brick pier expression create a human scale experience for the first-floor retail tenants. These brick piers interlock with a series of vertical bronze fins that create a woven façade texture on the uniform building massing.
The office building includes amenities that are needed for today’s corporate tenants which include an elegant lobby, a large, shared conference room, on-site fitness center, and convenient bike and vehicle parking – all set within a vibrant neighborhood.
