Loft Project a Magnet for Interest

Last week’s groundbreaking ceremony for Liberty Lofts condominiums drew a crowd of about 80 people.

That’s pretty remarkable for a groundbreaking, but it’s proven typical for the project just west of downtown Ann Arbor: In a time when downtown housing draws a lot of interest, this one is consistently at the head of the pack.

As City Council member Chris Easthope told the crowd, “(Development group) Morningside did it the right way.”

He was talking about Morningside’s efforts to talk to neighbors and other stakeholders and the Chicago-based company formed its plans for the site.

The effort paid off in good will toward the project, along with straightforward approvals and a contribution from the Downtown Development Authority.
