At its Aug. 5, 2010 meeting, the Ann Arbor city council gave unanimous site plan approval to Zaragon Place 2, a proposed 14-story, 96,685-square-foot residential building located on the southwest corner of Thompson and William – now an empty lot next to Cottage Inn restaurant. The building meets the site’s D1 zoning, and is therefore a “by-right” project – no rezoning is required.
It is the first project to move forward under the city’s new A2D2 zoning regulations, and would include 99 units, 40 parking spaces on levels two and three, 40 spots for bike storage, and ground floor retail space facing William Street. For coverage of the city planning commission’s recommendation on Zaragon Place 2, see: “Moving Ahead on Zaragon Place 2.”
