A residential development is coming to the site of the old Madison school building, which will be known as Gateway Grove.

In a press release on Monday, G&G Hauling and Excavating President Cary Groninger says the development will consist of single family homes and townhomes that are within walking distance of downtown Warsaw.

Groninger went on to say in the release that “In the spirit of Madison’s legacy, this development strives to be an agent of positive change in the community by building housing for new families and adding amenities that will promote a more active lifestyle.”

The gym will remain with future hopes that it will become an amenity for the neighborhood. Crews will be leaving bricks of the school outside of the fence along Union Street once demolition begins this week for those who would like to keep a brick for keepsake purposes.

Construction on the homes is planned to begin sometime in the second quarter of this year. On Monday, the Warsaw common council voted unanimously on an ordinance to vacate a couple areas of alleyway and a portion of Miami Street.
