660 West Washington Avenue, more commonly referred to as City Station, is the fourth stage of the Rail Corridor Master Development in downtown Madison and was the first in a series of buildings consisting of vibrant commercial space. The objective was to create a comfortable urban community of mutually supportive commercial uses that capitalize on the synergistic linkage between downtown and the University of Wisconsin.
City Station now anchors a four-building urban office park totaling nearly 250,000 square feet of class “A” commercial and retail space. Its retail component brought commerce into a residential area that, although centrally located, had few services. The neighborhood now possesses access to a Panera Bread, FedEx Office, Summit Credit Union, and Doctors’ offices.
