This exciting mixed use urban redevelopment project is located in the heart of the University of Wisconsin Madison campus. The base of the building is surrounded with retail space and features outdoor seating and dining. The upper levels include Lucky Apartments student housing and office space for the University of W isconsin. The one million plus square foot building is now home to the UW Bursar’s office, Financial Aid Office, Registrar’s office, Student Health Services, and the Student Organizations Student Activity Center. Five hundred underground parking spaces were also provided as part of the project. Sustainable features of the project included a “green” roof that provides a small park-like environment that functions as a storm-water management system, allowing plants to absorb rainwater and prevent runoff.
