‘Historic preservation’ and ‘adaptive reuse of historic buildings’ are at the heart of a special report from Concentrate, the Ann Arbor-based publication that “tells the new story of Washtenaw County – a narrative of creative people and businesses, new development, cool places to live, and the best places to work and play.”
The report consists of three stories about old buildings that have been very effectively put to new use and added to the economic and cultural life of the communities where they reside. These stories – about structures in Lansing, Pontiac and Ypsilanti – make for interesting reading and convey a message that applies as well in ‘River Country’ and elsewhere: there’s value in old buildings and historic preservation.
