Monona Marketplace

Monona Commercial ArialThe City of Monona has a robust commercial / business sector for a city of its size. Rich with economic possibilities and public amenities, the city of Monona is home to roughly 8,000 residents.

With no additional land to annex, Monona is landlocked by Lake Monona and the City of Madison forcing the city to be creative with its space and planning strategy.

Today, Monona boasts to having over $25 million in development at the current time, and the city is thriving with new projects. Both of the city's two main corridors, Broadway and Monona Drive, boast recently completed and new projects

Monona Drive Corridor

The Monona Drive corridor has seen the completion of the final phase of its reconstruction. The entire length of the street, from one end of the city to the other, was reconstructed with new roadway, medians, bike lanes, streetscaping, and lighting. This major reconstruction project, which was accomplished in three phases over four years, has won several Project of the Year state and national awards.

Along with the completion of its street construction project, the Monona Drive corridor also saw the completion of new residential multi-family housing. Fairway Glen offers studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments, along with four units of townhomes.

Broadway Corridor

The Broadway corridor is also seeing redevelopment with the construction of a new $22 million mixed-use development. Treysta on the Water will feature 121 luxury apartments in a multi-story building along with a cafe, retail stores, and The Waypoint Public House, a destination restaurant by Tim Thompson, co-owner of the Free House Pub and The Flying Hound. The development sits on a 5-acre lot along the Yahara River. With the construction of the new development, the City also upgraded the adjacent Lottes Park including a new Shelter and extension of the Yahara Cove Boardwalk.

Riverfront Redevelopment Project

The City's latest project is a major redevelopment of 7.6 acres, including 880 feet of waterfront along the Yahara River, in the Broadway/Bridge Road area.  Read more about this exciting project...
