Madison City Council OKs rezoning for Hilldale mall expansion

May 17 / Hilldale Happenings

Wisconsin State Journal | The Madison City Council continued to pave the way for a much-anticipated expansion of the Hilldale Shopping Center on Tuesday, rezoning an area to the south of the mall for the construction of a mix of commercial and residential buildings.

The zoning change allows for the construction of three buildings in 2025 between North Segoe Road and Price Place on a site currently occupied by a BMO Harris Bank and parking lot.

The plans from Hilldale owner WS Development include a circular lawn along Kelab Drive that will anchor the mall’s expansion and be an open space for concerts and ice skating.

Surrounding the lawn will be two buildings for commercial tenants.

A three-story, roughly 54,000-square-foot commercial building will be constructed on the south side of Heather Crest. On the north side of Vernon Boulevard will be a six-story building with 100 residential units and space for commercial tenants.
