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 staff writer 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.
