The NoVo Apartments project is an urban infill redevelopment that offers a unique residential living experience in Downtown Madison. NoVo Apartments delivers modern architecture with clean welcoming urban interiors and robust lifestyle and wellness amenities, while highlighting innovative sustainable design strategies. This project demonstrates how thoughtful urban infill development can deliver both sustainable solutions and robust amenities for market rate and affordable housing.

The NoVo Apartments project rises nine floors over an existing City of Madison parking garage. Nine levels of post-tensioned concrete were constructed to create the new apartment building that features a penthouse condo and fifth floor amenity area with a fitness center, game room, kitchen, outdoor grills and a dog run area.

This project includes a large curve along the east elevation to provide an impressive design feature. Segmented concrete forms and prefabricated steel stud wall panels were used to build the distinct curve. The building’s exterior panel façade includes different types of metal and colors that required careful construction to ensure the reveals and straight lines tied the entire building together. The straight lines and reveals continue into the lobby with custom millwork panels.
