Ron and I met when he started working on the first student high-rise on the University of Michigan Campus built since 1964. I feel that it was the most difficult project seen in Ann Arbor in many years. Ron’s reputation, dedication, integrity, and skills were the only way this project was brought to completion. After that project, Ron redeveloped the former flagship Border’s Book Store in downtown Ann Arbor. It’s the most successful and desired retail/office project that the downtown has seen. I’d work with Ron, and stake my reputation and dedication, to any of his future projects.
