After lying vacant for years, the site of a former DTE Energy plant at 841 Broadway St. has a new development plan, approved 10-1 by Ann Arbor City Council on July 1. The conceptual plan, designed by Detroit-based Roxbury Group, includes condos, a restaurant, a hotel, commercial space, a canoe/kayak launch, an event pavilion, a water feature/ ice rink, green area with walking trails, and a bridge across the Huron River to Argo Park. Although most of the new housing will likely be competitively priced for its desirable location, as a Planned Unit Development (PUD), site zoning requires Roxbury to provide a minimum of 15% affordable housing or make a donation to Ann Arbor’s affordable housing fund. $100 million will be necessary to transform the polluted former coal-gasification plant. The City plans to use 12 years of tax revenue from the development to finance the environmental cleanup. Groundbreaking on the site could kickoff this year, according to Roxbury, although they still need to return to City Council for official site plan approval.
