The city is weighing two proposals for the Judge Doyle Square project, one of which would turn the Madison Municipal Building into a 308-room hotel; another would build a new 352-room hotel. Both hotel proposals would include thousands of square feet of meeting and conference space. The developers are seeking as much as $80 million in public aid.
Isthmus reporter Joe Tarr reports on the namesake of Judge Doyle Square and explores concerns raised by the manager of the Concourse Hotel in the December 6 issue and discussed his story with WORT producer Dylan Brogan on the December 5 edition of In Our Backyard.
