Four restaurants, coworking space coming to former Lucky’s Market in Ann Arbor
ANN ARBOR, MI -- A company bringing a 15-minute neighborhood concept to the former Lucky’s Market space is set to open its doors in the coming weeks. Venue, 1919 S. Industrial Highway, Ann Arbor, is the sister location to Prentice4M, a coworking and co-living space across the street. Thad Gillies, who owned and operated Ann Arbor restaurants Chow and Logan, will serve as the culinary director for the space. “…They want that kind of self-serve.”Self-service is also available for Venue’s coworking space, located near the dining space. Ann Arbor city officials have been pushing for “20-minute neighborhoods” — where all basic necessities are within a 20-minute walk — pitching a plan in early 2021 to increase the number of them in Ann Arbor by 2030.mlive.com

This is an exciting time for us here in Auburn Hills, said Auburn Hills Mayor Kevin McDaniel. Before the arena was sold, Auburn Hills city council rezoned the space for research and development.
