Ann Arbor OKs industrial development district for Sartorius ‘flex-tech’ project
An area in Ann Arbor’s Research Park has been designated an industrial development district after it was approved by Ann Arbor City Council earlier this week.
The resolution to turn 3874 Research Park Drive and four adjacent lots into an industrial development district was passed by City Council on March 7. The land is currently owned by Sartorius BioAnalytical Instruments, Inc., which has plans to create a $57-million facility at 3874 Research Park Drive.
The district, also called an industrial facilities exemption, allows Sartorius to take a 50% tax abatement for up to 12 years. Ann Arbor last approved an industrial development district in 2013 at 1901 East Ellsworth Road for Mahindra GenZe, an electric bike company.
SPARK has also supported creating a business improvement zone in the Briarwood Mall area, which is near the Research Park, as part of a push to create a more walkable and livable area in the south side of Ann Arbor.
Having both the industrial development district and the business improvement zone would take the area past feeling like “Anywheresville, USA,” Santer previously told MLive.
