MADISON, Wis. -The Madison Common Council upheld a ruling by the City Landmarks Commission early Wednesday morning to halt a redevelopment project in the Mansion Hill Historic District.
Steve Brown Apartments wants to knock down the 10-story Highlander building and other structures to make room for three five-story buildings in the 100 block of Gilman Street.
The landmarks commission said it was out of scale and the council upheld their ruling after debating until 2 a.m. Wednesday morning during the Tuesday-night meeting.
A statement from Steve Brown CEO Margaret Watson said the company is saddened by the council’s decision.
“Ultimately we believe that the city will discover that if it is serious about preserving its historic spaces, it will modernize the ordinances,” Watson said. “We are concerned about the need to keep the district healthy and intent to examine these issues in depth.”
