Madison Common Council to take up Edgewater redevelopment tonight

By Paul Snyder

The Madison Common Council will meet Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. to make its final votes on the proposed $98 million redevelopment of the Edgewater Hotel.

Brookfield-based Hammes Co. proposes redeveloping the 64-year-old downtown hotel, which would include renovation, addition of a nine-story tower, a public plaza area on Lake Mendota and underground parking for about 355 vehicles.

The Common Council has several votes to make on the project, including whether to grant $16 million in tax incremental financing for the project, and whether or not to overturn the Landmarks Commission’s decision not to grant the project a certificate of appropriateness because of its size.

The Common Council in December failed to overturn the Landmarks Commission’s previous rejection.

Madison Mayor Dave Cieslewicz said last week the project has better momentum now with approvals from the Urban Design Commission, Plan Commission and Board of Estimates.
