The Rough Stage: Now in the rough, raw building stage - that describes Westaire subdivision, now teeming with construction activity in the city's northwest area. This is S. Circle Dr., a new street which starts at Miller Ave. west of Arbor Heights subdvision and curves past Haisley School to Maple Rd. That's Haisley School in the background. There are a part of 68 homes being built by the Prospect Hill Construction Co.

Westward Ho: Ann Arbor's city limits are pushed ever outward. And this aerial photograph offers graphic evidence. That thoroughfare across the bottom of the picture, completely paved and lined with neat homes on landscaped lots is Duncan St. Earlier in this decade, Duncan St. resembled the area above it, an area which lies due west. Maple Rd., the western city limits in this area, is shown above the rough land under construction as it extends across the picture. Miller Ave. is shown along the right extending from Duncan up to Maple. The sector under construction is Westaire subdivision, a 200-lot project being developed by Staebler & Son and the Prospect Hill Construction Co., a subsidiary of the Home Realty Co. Today, its streets are but graded, exaggerated paths through the field. But, they have recorded names and, in the future they will appear as urban as Duncan. Looking from Duncan west, the first street (the curved street) is N. Circle Dr. (right) and S. Circle Dr. (left). Above the curved street are three straight streets known as Westaire Way, Hasper Dr. and Western Dr. On to the west (toward top of picture), beyond Maple Rd., lies pastoral land. How long will it maintain its rural appearance? Who knows?
