ANN ARBOR (WWJ/AP) – Gov. Rick Snyder and his wife Sue are planning to move to a $2 million condo in the heart of downtown Ann Arbor as early as this summer.
The Ann Arbor News says the couple bought a 4,600-square-foot condo in a historic building on Main Street. The condo occupies the top two floors above the Four Directions retail shop, between Liberty and Washington streets.READ MORE: MDOT: Final Adopt-A-Highway Cleanup Of 2021 Starts September 25
The condo sold for $1.5 million in August and the city planning commission this week approved a $500,000 addition, including a rooftop deck that overlooks Main Street.
Snyder spokeswoman Sara Wurfel said the Snyders are empty nesters since their youngest child went to college and they’re downsizing.READ MORE: Invasive Species Found After Mid-Michigan Dam Failures
“Their three children are all in the Ann Arbor area, and the Snyders are very fond of the area,” Wurfel said in a statement.
The Snyders currently live in a home worth around $1.4 million in Washtenaw County’s Superior Township outside Ann Arbor. They chose not to move to the governor’s residence in Lansing when the former venture capitalist was elected.MORE NEWS: Recall Effort Launched In Alma After Migrant Housing Vote
