Frank Productions building new music venue in Madison

Posted: Updated:

 MADISON (WKOW) -- Frank Productions plans to build a new, state-of-the-art music venue on Madison's near east side.

The company announced the new facility on Thursday. It'll be on the north side of the 1000 block of East Washington Avenue.

Preliminary plans call for a  46,000-square foot facility that will host concerts and entertainers, include a VIP lounge and seating area, along with offices for Frank Productions staff members. Capacity should be about 2,000.

“We intend to create a space that’s both easy and exciting for artists, as well as a venue that the Madison community can support and be proud of. We want the venue to become a Madison destination. We’re thrilled to be part of the progressive plans in place for this area,” said Chief Operating Officer Fred Frank in a news release.

Frank Productions expects to begin construction in six months.

At this point, the venue has not yet been named.
