Gebhardt Development would like to officially announce the groundbreaking for The Gebhardt Building and Frank Productions The Sylvee on Thursday, May 25th, 2017 at 11AM at 811 East Washington Ave.
The 8-story Gebhardt Building will have 100,000 square feet of retail and office space and Frank Production’s The Sylvee is a 50,000 square foot performance venue with offices. The building will offer premier office space in Downtown Madison; within walking distance of everything, great views of both lakes and the Capitol, and even the potential for Madison’s first rooftop helipad.
This project along with American Family’s Spark building will be the catalyst for the South Side of East Washington Avenue for years to come. This is a transformative project adding much-needed density and job growth to Capitol East District.
This is the final piece remaining from the former Don Miller auto dealership and 3rd project by Gebhardt Development on the East Washington Corridor. This is the first project from any developer on the South Side of East Washington Avenue in years.
It fulfils a long-term vision that brings alive a once-dead district by activating the area throughout the day and night. It creates a more vibrant and diverse atmosphere that bridges the Tenney Lapham and Marquette Neighborhoods with the Capitol square and East Washington Corridor. The corridor’s continued evolution is intended to cater to an under-served demographic of millennials to empty-nesters by creating the right mix of retail, offices, apartments and condos, bars/restaurants and entertainment venues. This development, along with our Constellation and Galaxie projects, and right next to the newly activated Breese Stevens Field creates a true urban infill in the most sustainable way.
It will be exciting to watch how this new project will impact not only the Capitol East District but all of Madison for many years to come.
