The History

The Montgomery Ward Building stood proudly on Fourth Avenue between Washington and Liberty in downtown Ann Arbor. Ward’s was a popular department store selling clothing, tires, furniture, linens, heaters, toys and bicycles. Their specialty was mail ordering, similar to that of their rival, Sears Roebuck & Co. It was rebuilt after a terrible fire in 1950, only to be destroyed by another fire in 1960. The building reflects style trends for commercial buildings in the 1920’s. Light-colored terracotta and other materials were the rage, as were decorations reminiscent of 18th-century designs, such as urns and swags.

Retaining the authenticity of its former glory days the exterior will entail mosaic masonry and a stone blanket façade while encompassing modern features that will appeal to today’s renter. The beautifully designed amenities of Montgomery Houze are created to enrich the lifestyle of our resident. The extensive rooftop terrace offers panoramic views of Ann Arbor made for a special event or a relaxing summer evening. If a good laugh is what you need, take the elevator to the basement and visit the new home of the Ann Arbor Comedy Showcase.
