Gorman's Vision for Union Corners
Gorman & Company, Inc. believes that we will be able to transform Union Corners by integrating history and modernization into the development of commercial, retail, and residential buildings and green space for the neighboring community. We have been selected as the developer for UW Health in their bid to relocate their east side clinic to a Union Corners location.
In addition to the UW Health clinic, we have been in discussions with several other potential commercial tenants including a local grocer, restaurant and the relocation of the Hawthorne branch of the Madison Public Library. These major tenants make up the majority of the commercial/retail space that we have planned on the site. These types of tenants will bring positive energy to the area community as they include job growth and reliable income for taxes on the parcel. Gorman & Company believes that the infill of these commercial and retail clients will also help establish a great residential neighborhood.
The residential portion of the neighborhood will include affordable and market rate apartments as well as townhomes and single-family homes. We envision a residential neighborhood that combines an Americanized-Woonerf style with traditional architecture that is compatible with the surrounding residential neighborhoods. Other site amenities include a Union Commons that will function a neighborhood center, sculptures by renowned native American artist and Ho-Chunk member Truman Lowe, community gardens, splash park, bike paths and re-use of the French Battery building bricks to form monument signs and other landscaping features.
