The Ann Arbor Planning Commission will be hearing about a pair of housing developments at tonight’s meeting.

The Veridian at County Farm Park South development calls for redesigning six buildings being proposed to increase the number of dwellings to 121. The project, which on the west side of Platt Road between Washtenaw and Huron Parkway, has already been approved for 110 units.

The modifications change the types of buildings and the number of units in each. It now includes 24 studio apartments instead of the original 11, with a few smaller changes as well.

The other development seeks to build an 8-unit, 32-bedroom townhome-style complex on Mary Court. The four houses currently on the site would be razed for the new construction. The owners want to cater to University of Michigan students looking for housing.

Tonight’s meeting begins at 7 PM in City Council Chambers at Ann Arbor City Hall.
