Near North

On August 31, 2012, The Ann Arbor Chronicle reported that Avalon Housing had released a statement declaring the near north project unworkable. The article can be found here, and it includes the following report:

In a letter sent to Ann Arbor councilmembers and other government officials, Avalon Housing‘s senior developer Michael Appel has announced that the Near North affordable housing project will not move forward. The development team has determined that the project, which was to include 39 new affordable housing units, 16 of them as supportive housing, is not feasible as planned.


At the Ann Arbor City Council meeting of September 21, 2009, the Council approved Avalon Housing's plan to build a housing project on the north side of downtown, outside the DDA boundary. [Chronicle article here] Although the project is outside the DDA district, the DDA has committed to providing a subsidy for the project.

The documents attached below are the Near North project site plan and a DDA resolution to provide support for the project.
