ANN ARBOR, MI — Two houses on Ann Arbor’s Main Street are proposed to be demolished to make way for a 36-bed apartment building catering to University of Michigan students.
The city’s Planning Commission voted 6-0 Tuesday night, Dec. 1, to recommend City Council approve the development.
The project is proposed on the east side of Main Street, just south of Davis Avenue and south of downtown.
Two-story rental houses at 907 and 913 S. Main St. would be torn down and replaced by a three-story, 13,467-square-foot building containing six six-bedroom apartments.
The project is allowed under the existing multi-family zoning, maxing out a 30-foot height limit.
Each of the tri-level units would include six bathrooms, two kitchens and two living areas.
Commission Chair Sarah Mills complimented the development team on what she considered a super creative and smart design, making special note of the dual kitchens.
