Originally posted by BBQNole: Thanks for the post. I am one of the partners at CollegeTown's anchor location Madison Social. To say we are excited about the project is an understatement.
As far as the older building around the project, one is Dura Print. There have been several rumors that he owner is "this close" to striking a deal with a major clothing retailer for that space. But, this has been going on for 9 months or so but fingers are crossed.
The other older building will become America's Backyard which is for music.
The rest of the area around CollegeTown will be all new apartments. The apartments directly connected already sold out the 3 bedrooms I saw so the students are embracing it. I believe the number of students within a .25 mile walk will be between 3000-4000.
More to come on Madison Social and I am sure the mods don't want this to turn into an advertisement:)
The more you can provide, the better.
I wish we saw more bars/restaurants instead of a major clothing retailer, but maybe it will just add to the scene. Who knows....
