After a public hearing, a city special committee is recommending more talks with two of four entities vying to redevelop the long-vacant Union Corners site on Madison's East Side.

The city's Union Corners Committee recommended continued discussions with the Gorman Co. of Oregon as well as with the partnership of the Livesey Co. and Stone House Development, both of Madison, to redevelop the 11.4-acre site at the corner of East Washington Avenue and Milwaukee Street.

Gorman's $83 million proposal would bring UW Health's East Side clinic to the site and the company is also talking with Willy Street Co-op about adding a 20,000-square-foot store and offices for the co-op there. Livesey/Stone House, both of Madison, have a $72 million plan also includes a medical clinic and neighborhood grocery.

The committee directed staff to do a preliminary financial analysis of the two finalists, which will be discussed at an yet-to-be scheduled future meeting.
