An 18-story building was proposed for this site a few years ago, but it never panned out. I'm glad to see something take its place. I just wonder though if this project will be successful especially with the glut of student housing developments that hav been built in Ann Arbor over the past decade.

The Varsity apartment project kicks off in Ann Arbor
If you seek a denser downtown, The Varsity, a 13-story, 173-unit apartment building intended to house about 418 residents – mainly students – may be next on Ann Arbor's horizon.

The 178,380-square foot project under development by Potomac Holdings of Bethesda, Md., has just undergone a design review by the city's new design review board. It's intended to replace the squat two-story Ann Arbor Professional Building at 425 E. Washington Street, a block away from the University of Michigan campus.
