New housing development planned on Glendale Drive in Ann Arbor's West Side
There is not very much empty space left in Ann Arbor for new housing developments. However, plans are in the works for a new 16-unit multi-family condominium complex on a currently unused lot on Glendale Drive.

According to city tax records, Ann Arbor developer Jeffery Starman owns the site, currently which has two single-family residences. Those residences would be demolished to make way for the new project.
Susan Bowers, a senior associate at Bowers Associates, said the property is being developed by Glendale Orchard, LLC. The company’s agent is Gerald “Jerry” Spears who works with Starman at Madison Property Company.
Each unit in the proposed development would have its own entry and a single car garage.
The citizen participation meeting will be held on at 6:30 p.m. on Jan. 15 at Cobblestone Farm. Once the meeting is held the company working on the project, Bowers Associates, plans to submit site plans to the city and hopes to appear before the planning commission as early as Feb. 26.
“If all goes well with the planning, we think they [the developer] would like to start construction in the spring and see the apartments completed by the end of the year,” Bowers said.
