The University of Michigan has released preliminary drawings of Einhorn Yaffee Prescott’s design for the new residential/retail/instructional/administrative building on the site of the current Frieze Building. The Michigan Daily runs the images in a cover story on the project.
Sources indicate that preliminary plans are also forthcoming. (Sources also indicate that the retail will not be accessible from the exterior of the building.) The Regents of the University of Michigan will get a briefing at their meeting this Friday. The action recommended is to approve the $137,000,000 project budget and move ahead with bids and contracts. The Frieze will be demolished and the Carnegie Library facade will be incorporated into the new building.
UPDATE: The Michigan Daily reports that the item has been pulled from the Regents’ agenda due to design and cost issues by university CFO Timothy Slottow.
