The Continental.
The future of living timelessly.

"Cannot say enough good things about our home at The Continental! It's been an amazing place to live with extremely friendly and attentive staff, a responsive and efficient maintenance team, beautiful views, an awesome common & game room upstairs, and so much more! It's extremely well maintained, always clean, and the layout and design of the apartments was impressively thought out to every detail including a surprising amount of storage space. We would highly recommend living here to anyone that is looking. If you are on the fence, don't hesitate."

“Beautiful place to live in downtown Madison. Top tier amenities and common spaces. If you come and visit, check out the 10th floor terrace (especially at sunset), stunning view. You can tell they didn’t cut corners here. Thick walls, blazingly fast internet, high quality appliances. Everything just works how you want it to. Staff are friendly and tremendously helpful. You can definitely feel a genuine interest to constantly make the experience of living here a bliss. All of my questions and requests have been answered within the day. Neighbors here are nice and social too. Have made friends with neighbors and staff here alike (and neighbor’s dog). Toured similar places and nothing compared. Pinnacle of downtown Madison living.”

“Living at the Continental for the last seven months has been an incredible experience. One of my favorite features of the Continental is its location just blocks from Capitol square and its walkability to downtown Madison. The apartments themselves are beautiful with modern design elements, spacious layouts, and an abundance of natural light. The amenities at the Continental are exceptional. The fitness center offers state-of-the-art equipment while the 10th-floor community room offers panoramic views of the isthmus and lakes Mendota and Monona. The building also offers a game room with a golf simulator. The exceptional management team truly differentiates the Continental from other apartment buildings. Their dedication to resident satisfaction is evident in every interaction, from their quick responses to resident requests to their organization of community events. For those in search of a stunning place to call home in Madison, the Continental is undoubtedly the perfect choice.”
