The Ann Arbor Business Review just posted an article on a new plan to build a 26 story student high rise in South U.
Story here: South University Poised for Transformation
The U-shaped “University Village” would go over where the Bagel Factory and the Village Corner are (actually, it would go right on top of them—they’d be demolished).
Some other notable project features:
The buildings would house 850 students and have 380 parking spaces and 302 bicycle spaces (not bad).
The City will decide to accept or reject the project this Thursday.
The article goes on to discuss the changing nature of South U as more high rise student developments go up, like the in process Zaragon Place.
Could South U lead the way in created a dense and resident-heavy downtown? Time will tell.
