Village on Park Improvements
January 11, 2023
The project is currently in the design development phase and will be moving into the construction document phase soon. Recent committee reviews include approval by the Urban Design Commission on December 14, 2022, and approval by the Plan Commission on January 9, 2023 as noted in the City Process Meetings section below. Also take a look at the updated renderings of the proposed new parking structure further down on this page.
Design and construction, including site development, for Village on Park Improvements located at 2300 South Park Street. The first phase of work includes demolition of the north wing of the Villager Mall building and construction of a new surface parking lot that is planned to be constructed and completed in the summer of 2022. The second phase of site development includes the new Urban League Hub building and the proposed parking structure garage. The parking structure will have approximately 295 parking stalls above grade with approximately 6-levels. It will operate as a fully automated self-parking structure. The Parking Structure project is part of the second phase of an overall master plan for the ongoing development of the Village on Park campus. The Urban League Black Business Hub building will be designed and constructed by the Urban League of Greater Madison and is planned to begin construction in the spring of 2022 with construction completion and occupancy in the summer of 2023. The new parking structure garage will provide tenant parking for the Urban League Hub tenants and other Village on Park/Villager Mall tenants and visitors.

Michael Ford has since refined his designs and is seeking public input about his public art and design concepts by November 7 at noon.
