Glen Ann Place Extension Delayed

At its Oct. 4, 2010 meeting, the Ann Arbor city council postponed consideration of a request to extend for five years the 2007 consent judgment it agreed to with Joseph Freed and Associates LLC, developer of the Glen Ann Place project. Glen Ann Place was a planned unit development (PUD) approved by the council in July 2005, but that did not win subsequent approval from the city’s historic district commission. Freed then filed suit against the city, the outcome of which was a consent judgment. Per the consent agreement, the height of the building was reduced from 10 to 9 stories. Glen Ann Place is planned to include retail and office uses on its first two floors, with residential on upper stories. The postponement was suggested by Tony Derezinski (Ward 2), who cited the absence of Sandi Smith (Ward 1) and Stephen Rapundalo (Ward 2).

This brief was filed from city council chambers. A more detailed report of the meeting will follow: [link]
