A development boom hit the Madison, Wis., Capitol East District and East Washington Avenue corridor, completely transforming the once-industrial area into a live-work urban environment. Luxury apartment developer Campbell Capital Group, LLC partnered again with raSmith to engineer a site design and develop a landscape plan for the 228-unit multi-family complex now called The Marling.
Permitting proved to be challenging but the team collaboratively worked through a rigorous approval process with the city and neighborhood residents. Creating a plan that not only integrated well with the site but also considered future parkland along the Yahara River challenged the design team. Innovative stormwater controls will manage runoff from storms. The apartment complex will also feature landscaped public and private plazas and courtyards, plus streetscape amenities, for its residents.
With land development and a successfully engineered site design completed, construction started in 2017. raSmith will be providing ongoing client support through construction’s completion.
At raSmith, we value people and help employees grow within their careers. As our connection to the client, we encourage employees to be their creative best and support them in cultivating good ideas that solve our clients’ challenges. It’s the diversified experience and holistic perspective we bring that set us apart. We are creative beyond engineering.
