Urban Land Interest’s newest apartment building, Nine Line, is located in the heart of the historic Yards District on a site steeped in the industrial and railroad history of our city. It’s location in the present day is just seven blocks from the Capitol Square, across the street from Lake Monona and Brittingham Boats, and right next to the Madison Southwest Commuter Bike Trail. With a long list of amenities and excellent design, Nine Line is at the forefront of apartments in Madison.
The name Nine Line harkens back to the 1800’s, a time of great industrial growth in Madison due largely to the introduction of the rail system. The modern day location of the Yards looks quite different than it would have back then. The apartment buildings and roads that now criss-cross the landscape would be replaced with nine railroad lines, all meeting in the same place. The lines, shown on what was referred to the Nine Lines Map, came from cities like Chicago, Milwaukee and Prairie du Chein, and Madison acted as a transition point in the journey of people and goods traveling across the state. The history of the site has influenced many aspects of design and decoration in the current Nine Line apartment building.
