Council Approves 'Environmentally Friendly' Project
By Andrew Cluley
Ann Arbor, MI – Ann Arbor's city council has approved the building site plan, development agreement, and brownfield plan for a project some are calling the most environmentally friendly project to come before city council.
Council approved plans for an eight-story, 29-thousand square foot mixed use building at Ashley and Washington. City council member Robert Johnson says he hopes the project will become a model for other developments in the city.
Damian Farrell of Integrated Architecture says the building is designed with a 'green' roof that can handle a 100-year-flood level or rainfall.
The building will have two floors of retail, three floors of offices, and six condominiums on the top three floors.
