In the news

The University of Michigan Credit Union finalized its purchase of the former Ann Arbor News building in downtown Ann Arbor today.

The art deco building is a combination of office space on the front half and a printing facility on the back half. It stands like a fortress on one of downtown's least-lively intersections, to put it nicely. But could its possible redevelopment play a key part in reinventing downtown's northern border while adding another unique asset to Ann Arbor's funky character?
