Ulrich's Building on South University
I Spy: June 2017
by Sally Bjork
From the July, 2017 issue
June's I Spy "is the Ulrich's building on South University ...," writes Erin Trame, "soon to be another student high rise." "A 12-story ... apartment/commercial building," adds Sara Kitzsteiner. "I hope the folks in East Hall are preparing for ... views ... into student rooms," quips Erin.
David Karl ruminates on the changing landscape, noting that the building will rise on site where "Fred Ulrich took over [and expanded] the bookstore where he worked." The "Collegian North" is slated to be completed in late summer 2019. "Might there be a Collegian South in the future?" Karl asks. Indeed, the city has already approved another high-rise behind the storefronts on the south side of of the street. "The Southfield-ization of A2 continues," writes Anne Heise. While David Karl accepts change, he does draw a line: "Just don't mess with the Walker and Haarer buildings on W. Liberty."
We received twelve entries in June; ten identifying Ulrich's. Our winner, drawn randomly from the correct entries is Dave Sweeton. He will enjoy his $25 gift certificate at Cardamom.
