The Madison on Main in Ann Arbor
The Madison on Main will consist of urban apartments for rent that target a mature and professional demographic. There is a demand for rental space in this area for residents who want to remain in the neighborhood, but are ready to retire and leave the responsibility of home ownership. We feel that The Madison on Main could serve this function for mature residents who are ready for this transition, as well as people who want to move to the area and enjoy the myriad advantages of living in an eclectic, pedestrian friendly, urban neighborhood.
The primary program component will be 28-32 sophisticated residential apartments. The apartment mix ranges from well-designed 600sf one-bedroom luxury apartments to larger and gracious two-bedroom with study units.
The ground floor/street level program contains prime corner retail/café space of approximately 1,267 sf of lease space. This location on the northeast corner of the site at Main and Madison will be a significant benefit to the surrounding community and the building’s residents. Within a short walk from downtown or the Old West Side neighborhood, people could possibly meet up for coffee & deserts, sandwiches, and a light lunch. Wine, cheese, meats and sundry goods may be available for purchase as well.
The residents of The Madison on Main will enter a secured entry lobby off of Madison Street. The street level residential amenities will include a mail room, concierge, heated parking and a screened solid waste/recycling area. Two exit stairs and one passenger elevator will provide the necessary vertical circulation. The plan includes 26 private off-street heated parking spaces located between street level and one level of below grade parking. Mechanical rooms, bicycle parking and storage rooms are located in the basement level.
The upper level floors two through six will be a mix of apartment units. The number of units decreases and size increases as the building ascends. All residential floors will have a common lobby and waste/recycling room with chute. All apartment units will have a small balcony or private terrace. One penthouse unit will be provided on the roof. The roof top will also include a shared terrace that will promote a sense of community and provide a gathering space for the residents.
Best practice efforts are underway to assure that The Madison on Main will be a designed as a sustainable and environmentally responsible development. Incorporating locally sourced and energy efficient building materials, mechanical systems, appliances, and low flow plumbing fixtures, rainwater collection and underground storm water infiltration systems, and other sustainable features will minimize the impact of the building on the environment and public water system.
