    Gorman & Company will host a grand opening celebration for the completion of Union Corners, a 252-unit, mixed-use, mixed-income community located at the intersections of E. Washington Ave., Winnebago St., and Milwaukee St. on Madison’s east side, on Wednesday, July 12, at 4 p.m.

    Union Corners is a 10-year, multi-phased project on a 13-acre prominent parcel of formerly vacant land.

    “I am extremely proud of the community that our firm, along with our many partners, has created at Union Corners; it will be a permanent asset to the adjacent neighborhoods and the entire City of Madison for generations to come,” said Gary Gorman, Gorman & Company’s founder and chairman of the board of directors, in a statement.

    According to a press release, the grand opening celebration, open to the public, will feature a menu sampling from the new restaurant located within Carbon called Touch of Ukraine, entertainment by Ladies Must Swing, Quick Chef food cart, Momma Meg’s Ice Cream Truck, and the unveiling of the permanent art installations honoring the Union soldiers, the famous and long-standing Union House Tavern, and the French Battery and Carbon Company that all previously called this location home.

    This site on Madison’s East Side, about two miles from the State Capitol Building, provides historical significance to the area as a former Civil War Union soldier encampment and home to the Schulkamp’s Corner Saloon, also known as Union House Tavern, named by soldiers who popularized it.
