Madison city leaders and developers broke ground Thursday on the latest project in the Town Madison development.
The Station at Town Madison apartments is expected to begin with 274 apartments in the mixed-use retail portion of the development. Developers said the $36 million project will be four stories of apartments with elevators and "resort-style amenities."
One, two and three-bedroom apartments will be available, and some will have garages, according to the developers.
Apartments are expected to begin leasing in 2019.
Town Madison developer Louis Breland is partnering with Tynes Development Corporation and B&J LLC on the project.
The Town Madison development will encompass 530 acres along I-565. Plans for the development also include a new minor league baseball stadium.
A phase of single-family homes and a Home 2 Suites hotel already are under development in the area.
