Calling itself the "best kept secret in Dane County," Monona is known for award-winning commercial corridors, strong community institutions and beautiful lakefront views. Close to downtown Madison by bike, bus or car, generations of families have chosen Monona as an ideal place to live and work.

Fairway Glen Apartment Community

Fairway Glen Apartment Community, is a 56-unit project located at the former site of Monona UW-Health Clinic at 5001 Monona Drive. The project is expected to fill a housing need currently lacking in Monona and will draw a mix of young professionals and empty-nesters seeking an urban location with a portion of the units set aside for individuals with special needs.

Treysta on the Water

Restaurants, stores and 121 new luxury apartments with concierge services are expected to be built on this five acre parcel of land along the Yahara River along Broadway, just off Monona Drive. Groundbreaking occurred summer 2013.

Plans for this $17 million, mixed-use development call for:

  • Boat slips for tenants and the public,
  • Boats for rent,
  • A commercial cafe in the apartment building lobby,
  • Retail stores, and
  • A "destination" restaurant, probably something locally owned featuring fine dining or a brewpub.

A riverfront boardwalk that currently starts at the River Place business complex to the east will be extended west along the Rutabaga Paddlesports property to Treysta and Lottes Park as part of the project.
