Deli Dilemma

The famous Zingerman's Deli in downtown Ann Arbor is moving forward on its long-awaited expansion project, but the city is making crews work around a historic (read: not allowed to demolish) house that sits on the property. The distinctive orange annex building, as its formally called, was lifted from its foundation today and placed on a temporary foundation nearby. The biggest reason to move the structure is so demolition on the patio can start. Work so far has included demolishing a fire-damaged house on East Kingsley Street, in addition to the annex building move. Eventually, a 10,340-square-foot building will be added to the reconfigured campus. As part of that plan, the annex building will be relocated to a position near its original foundation.
