ANN ARBOR, MI — An Ann Arbor development firm intends to submit revised construction plans for a “flex-tech” space in a local industrial complex.

Portage Capital Partners has expanded its original plans to create a research and office space at 3874 Research Park Drive. The building, which was initially planned to be 79,000 square feet, will now be 130,000 square feet.

The space will feature a two-story office area of roughly 30,000 square feet on each floor, for a total of 60,000 square feet. It will also have a one-story space of 70,000 square feet.

Plans call for an open-air patio, fire pits and space for food trucks for future office residents.

“We think it’s going to fit well in the area,” said Thomas Phillips, an architect working on the project.

No companies have yet signed on to work in the space, according to Cam McCausland, a partner with Portage Capital Partners.

The company intends to submit revised plans to the Ann Arbor Planning Commission by the end of the month.
