Heritage Hill / Cherry Hill / Wealthy Street Updates

Recommended Posts

After the "Open House", I learned that they are going for Michigan State Housing Affordable money. They plan to rent to subsidized housing people at the 40% to 60% pay bracket. 

They are planning on 14, 2 bedroom and 8, one bedroom units, varying between 600 to 900 square feet. They are also planning on an elevator, and some handicapped units.   They are planning on 19 parking spots, with no extra charge for them, with 9 or 10 in the basement, and bicycle parking. They are planning to be on the March 28th planning board meeting docket.

Sounds like they have a plan.

Well, that explains how they are going to squeeze the parking in, although it's still a little tight.  They have a plan, but its going to come down to implementation with HPC and planning.  It's also important to note that MSHDA credits and income limits are a far cry from the dedicated Section 8 housing across the street.  It would be nice if they do some market rate in there too.  A mix is generally a good thing to have.

Looks like Denym is closing in the old App gallery. Sad, but I'm sure it won't take long for someone else to take it over.

I always thought renovations like this were not allowed to happen in Heritage Hill?  I checked their website and this house in on the corner of Madison and Pleasant--pleasant being the southernmost boundary of the historic district. I vaguely remember a friend in college whose dad lived on Wealthy and had to fight to replace the brick arch on his back gate.

Beautiful renovation though!

 I don't think they would allow a renovation like that.  This is a new build on a formerly vacant lot.   Lucky to have the beautiful park right across the street!
