Landscape Architect Services and Public Artist Team for Crazylegs Plaza and Wingra Park Entrance, Madison

Date: 6/9/2017 - 6/29/2017

Type: RFPs / RFQs

LA CES approved?: No

Location(s): Wisconsin

Description: The City of Madison, Wisconsin, will be resurfacing Monroe Street from Odana Road to Leonard Street and reconstructing the street from Leonard Street to Regent Street in 2018. Monroe is an arterial street that serves both surrounding neighborhoods and regional traffic traveling to and from Edgewood College, the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and Downtown Madison. The street accommodates between 12,000 and 22,000 vehicles per day along the 8,800 foot length of the project and is heavily used by pedestrians. Monroe is also used during Badger football game days at the 80,000-capacity Camp Randall Stadium, with other sporting events, such as volleyball and wrestling, at the UW Field House adjacent to Camp Randall.

The city is seeking a landscape architect to design two prominent locations along the length of Monroe Street: the entrance to Wingra Park, and Crazylegs Plaza at the Monroe-Regent intersection. While the entrance to Wingra Park is small (with about 105 feet of frontage along Monroe), there is an opportunity to turn the area into a gateway into one of the city's most popular parks. Crazylegs Plaza is at the intersection of two major streets and, with Camp Randall Stadium immediately to the north, is an area visited by tens of thousands of people on football Saturdays. Crazylegs Lane will be removed as part of the project, creating approximately 25,000 square feet of space for a triangular public plaza bounded by Breese Terrace, Monroe Street, and Regent Street.
