Site plan submitted for 'The Mark' condos on Ann Arbor's West Liberty
By Lizzy Alfs. April 19, 2014

Developer Alex de Parry is moving forward with plans for a seven-unit condo building on Ann Arbor's West Liberty Street.

De Parry, working with architect Brad Moore of J Bradley Moore & Associates, submitted a site plan for City Council approval for The Mark Condominiums at 318 W. Liberty St.

The 0.25-acre site is zoned D2 and located in the Old West Side historic district on the west edge of downtown Ann Arbor.

A car wash building constructed in the 1960s sits on the property. The site has a taxable value of $105,300 and is owned by Liberty Car Wash LLC, city records show.

Immediately to the east of the property is a city-owned parking lot that could become part of a future greenway along the train tracks that run by it.

The building to the west is now occupied by tech startup Sequoia Applied Solutions. The company’s founder, Joe Lambert, purchased the building last year and is in the process of renovating the structure.

Revisions have been made to The Mark condos after the project went before Ann Arbor’s Historic District Commission in December. Renderings show increases in the window size and amount of brick and the building is set further back from the street.

The Mark condos would be marketed toward empty nesters, the plans say. There would be seven units in the 11,910-square-foot building, including two penthouse units on top with patios. De Parry said the units would be similar in style to the nearby Liberty Lofts and will be comparable in price to other downtown condos.

There would be car garages located beneath the units with 14 tandem parking spots. A new curb cut would replace the existing curb cut on West Liberty Street.

The estimated cost of construction is $2.7 million, and the goal is to finish the project in 2015.

The site plan will go before Ann Arbor's Planning Commission before heading to City Council for consideration.
