Platt Road Construction?

Question Corner: September 2019

by Tim Athan

From the September, 2019 issue

Q. Any idea what the construction project is on Platt Rd. near Colonial Square/Lorraine St.? A few apartment buildings were recently leveled and we were wondering what is going in there.

A. The Ann Arbor Housing Commission is redeveloping two public housing properties: "State Crossing" on State St. just south of Stadium, and this one on Platt. It will be named Creekside Court in recognition of Swift Run Creek which emerges from underground pipes to flow along the south property line. It will include eight one-bedroom, twelve two-bedroom, six three-bedroom, two four-bedroom, and four five-bedroom apartments.

The city retains ownership of the land, but, like all recent AAHC projects, both complexes are being funded by private investors through low income housing tax credits. They will be open to households earning no more than half the area median income; with tenants drawn from the commission's existing wait list.

Both projects are expected to be completed next summer or fall. Three apartments at Creekside Court will be reserved for homeless veteran families, and five at State Crossing will be reserved for formerly homeless individuals. The AAHC is partnering with Avalon Housing and Community Action Network to provide support to residents at both sites.
