Ann Arbor Area Community News
The City has apparently received site plans for “Zaragon Place”, a 10-story building on East University, which would include 66 rental apartments, ground floor retail space, and two levels of that elusive grail, underground parking. The News states that apartments would be furnished, 2- to 6- bedrooms, and priced at around $1,000 per bedroom. (Compare to recent discussion of area rental rates on AAiO.)
These plans have already begun to ring alarms, as the site is currently the home of the Anberay Apartments, pictured. (Photo from City of A2 online assessing database.) As quoted in the News,
Until Sept. 11, 2001, the three-story Anberay was protected as part of Ann Arbor’s Individual Historic Properties Historic District. That historic district was dissolved as the result of a multi-year court battle over whether the city could group individual, scattered properties together for preservation.
Maggie Ladd, of the South University Area Association, is quoted as saying that her organization is “happy with the plans”, and that the developer met with the association several times during the design of the project.
Zaragon Place is scheduled to go before the City’s “Advisory Development Committee” this Friday at 2pm; the project is not yet scheduled for an appearance before the Planning Commission.
