A One Acre Park 7 Stories Above Street Level….Sound Absurb?

September 4, 2007

But it exists.   As part of the design for the Metropolitan Place Condominium in the central city in Madison, the development team designed a 1 acre private park that sits on top of the 6 story parking structure.  This park is accessed from within the 2 towers that make up Metropolitan Place Condominium.  Metropolitan Place Park

There are raised planting beds, a gazebo, a crushed red granite walking path and park benches scattered throughout the park. 

The best feature, in my opinion, is the park creates a 120 foot buffer between both towers–much greater distance than any adjoining building in the central city. 

The residents are starting to utilize this “hidden” treasure as well.  This Thursday, September 6 there’s an informal “Garden Party” gathering for all the residents of Metropolitan Place.  The weather looks awesome so it should be a great evening of “getting to know your neighbors”.

    That’s cool! Does that little park and walking path allow dogs in there for the residents with 4 legged room-mates?

    Edyn-No the 4 legged residents aren’t allowed there. There is, however, a 60 foot fenced and gated dog run that was just finished to the east of the building. It’s a cool development that welcomes dogs of any size, up to 2 total, as long as they are people friendly. The buildings even have a seperate elevator for the dogs to travel up and down on.
