in the latest major project floated for the East Washington Avenue corridor, Gebhardt Development is proposing new space for the StartingBlock Madison work hub along with a 1,500 seat concert venue.
The project is eyed for a two-acre parcel of city-owned land on the 800 block of East Washington, across from the new "Galaxie" apartment tower and grocery store now under construction.
The land is part of the former Don Miller properties purchased by the city in 2010 for future redevelopment.
The city has been accepting proposals for projects on the site with a Monday deadline.
"We believe the best solution for this site and for the district is an urban, integrated, active and sustainable project which continues to corridor progress and fully activates the street during the day and evening," said Otto Gebhardt in a statement Monday.

Gebhardt is teaming with Terry Sivesind, president of Starting Block, on the project. It would combine high-tech office space with the activity of Sector 67, another start-up company incubator.
Plans call for financing and project approvals by June 2015 with an opening in the winter of 2016.
The concert hall concept would compete with a plan from Stone House Development and Frank Productions for a venue on the 1000 block of East Washington on the former Madison Dairy plant site.
A group called "T Presents Madison" headed by New York based music promoter Toffer Christensen is pursuing the concert piece at the new site.
Gebhardt architect Chris Gosch says the 800 block on the south side of East Wash is better suited to a music hall since it located farther from single family homes and the Lapham Elementary School.
Also in the mix for the area is a new plan from developer Curt Brink for a new version of "Archipelago Village."
In addition, a separate group is also looking to open three new food and drink establishments in the former Lussier Teen Center at 829 E. Washington Ave.
