Ann Arbor's Broadway Village Still moving forward

18 posts in this topic


Someone at city hall probably thinks this development is going to be an enormous success (which it very well may be) in which case, it would reduce, almost eliminate, free parking in the area, forcing people to either walk, ride their bikes, take the bus (certainly good for AATA) or park in the garage. And, since the garage will have an edge on the parking market in the area, that someone at city hall probably sees a potential boon from paid parking.

Just my guess.

I'm not sure about the parking either, though, the recently built Capitol View Office Building, here in Lansing, includes a parking garage that the developer built for the city.

This is great. Though, it has been happening at a snail's pace.

During my MUP time at UM, I had the Real Estate Development class and the instructor was the local developer that started this development on its way....that was 2001.

6.5 years?!.....I know there are environmental issues, but they are only at a small part of the site (where an old dry cleaners was).

The development site actually looks worse now (I did a drive recently the last time I was through AA), then it did in 2001. They need to get some shovels in the dirt and get going. Or at least to do the site demo now.

I love how there are three different renderings for this project.

Anyone been around there lately? The old Kroger has been battered to hell by vandals.

A positive thing about this is that at least the graffiti was kept to this building as opposed to others around town

Everything has been leveled. I can't believe it only took 1 day! Let's hope construction moves just as quickly too.

It'll be nice to see this project finished. Let's just hope the economy doesn't trip it up.

I can see this huge swath of land from my perch at Kingsley Apartments, just a dead dark space surrounded by industrial and medical buildings. What a shame. At least all those trashy suburban buildings got leveled though. Something had to be done.

Just noticed in that article a new tower is up for approval. And possibly an Uno's in Scio? bought damn time. I like that place, and I don't care what anyone says lol.
