Ann Arbor Area Community News
After a tumultuous year of consideration and reconsideration, Glen Ann Place may be back. Last fall Ann Arbor’s Historic District Commission voted against a PUD submitted by Joseph Freed for the corner of Glen and Ann Streets. The decision provoked a great deal of controversy, not least because the city’s Planning Commission and City Council had already approved the project, which would demolish two houses on Glen St. and replace them with a 10 story mixed-use building. Freed resubmitted the proposal without demolition, instead proposing removal of the houses, but withdrew the plan to pursue the case in the courts.
An administrative judge has ruled for demolition, according to the Ann Arbor News, putting Glen Ann Place back on the city’s radar. However, city attorney Stephen Postema notes in the article that Glen Ann Place is by no means on a fast track.
In other preservation news, City Council voted down the proposed Lower Town Historic District and the Polhemus House on Washington will be moved across the Huron River on September 24th.
