"The Ann Arbor City Council continued to grapple Monday night with the prospect of adding hundreds of new housing units along Nixon Road. Council members brought up outstanding issues and concerns related to traffic, natural areas, wetlands and stormwater runoff before voting unanimously to postpone consideration of the 282-unit Woodbury Club Apartments project to Nov. 16.


The developer, the Bleznak Real Estate Investment Group, asked for the postponement so Woodbury Club Apartments will go to council for approval at the same time as the nearby Nixon Farms housing development, which proposes adding 472 additional new residences on the other [West] side of Nixon Road."

"Toll Brothers has submitted site plans and annexation and zoning requests for two properties at Nixon and Dhu Varren roads — a 69-acre property north of Dhu Varren and a 40-acre property south of Dhu Varren.  The company is under contract to purchase the land from a Nixon family trust."

"The city’s master plan recommends residential uses for the vacant sites at a density of between seven to 10 dwelling units per acre. At 491 units, Toll Brothers’ project would result in a density of about 4.5 units per acre, less than what's master planned for the site."

`The Pennsylvania-based company submitted preliminary plans to the city to annex 109 acres at the northwest and southwest corners of Nixon and Dhu Varren roads in Ann Arbor Township.

Toll Brothers VP Jason Minock told The Ann Arbor News in May that Toll Brothers is finding high demand for luxury homes in Washtenaw County. He said there is a trend of buyers gravitating closer to Ann Arbor to get within the Ann Arbor school district and an Ann Arbor mailing address.   [Toll Brothers] tends to buy at what we call Main and Main,” he said. “So Ann Arbor Schools with Ann Arbor mailing, or Northville schools with Northville mailing. People tend to gravitate to those places.”'  - by Lizzy Alfs, (The Ann Arbor News) July 2, 2014
