UW students sign petition opposing Langdon Street apartments
Several University of Wisconsin-Madison students are registered to speak at the Monday, May 18, meeting of Madison`s Plan Commission to express their opposition to The Langdon, a proposed apartment building slated for 126 Langdon St. They allege that the developer has been improperly offering special benefits to students who sign on in support of the project.

The Langdon is the latest venture in student-focused housing from Core Spaces, the development firm that built The Hub, 437 N. Frances St., and The James, 432 W. Gorham St. Core has proposed an 88-unit, five- to seven-story building.

The UW-Madison students intending to speak Monday say they have amassed over 1,800 signatures in a petition opposing the project. Many of the students who have signed are from the surrounding fraternity and sorority houses who echo the original opposition to a previous proposal from Core: they do not welcome an increase of noise and traffic...

Ken Notes:Fraternity and sorority are complaining about the potential for noise??? Seriously... They actually use there Langdon Street "party hub" locations to recruit new members. I have no opinion on this project, but I would ask what is best use for the property...
