Mayor Dave's weekly whereabouts: Hilldale biz

The Finks are back in town, accompanied by Dennis Harder. You might remember Robert and Adam Fink from previous episodes of Weekly Whereabouts as representatives of Joseph Freed and Associates, the development firm behind the new and improved Hilldale Shopping Center. They meet with Mayor Dave Cieslewicz on Wednesday, presumably to discuss the gigantic pile of dirt on University Avenue and not the quality of the huevos rancheros served at the Hilldale Pasqual's (that are in this writer's opinion, for the record: yummy).

It should not be glossed over how drastically Freed has transformed Hilldale from a standard issue mall, complete with vast and unsightly parking lot, into a welcoming retail neighborhood. When the condos along Midvale Boulevard were first constructed, many Madisonians wondered who would want to live in the yardless townhouses. But a few years later, the prospect of living within a short stroll of several restaurants, a movie theater, grocery shopping and major bus lines seems pretty attractive.
