Ann Arbor is Revitalizing South State Street Business Corridor

The State Street area has, for over 150 years, offered a rich array of goods, services and Ann Arbor real estate situated near the main campus of the University of Michigan. From the annual State Street Art Fair in July to a quick sandwich at Potbelly to the perfect condo to call “home,” State Street provides virtually everything today’s savvy urban dweller needs and wants. 

Although the economy has taken a toll on businesses across the nation and in Ann Arbor, confidence is growing as the South State Street business corridor begins to revitalize. Pittsfield Township officials are actively and aggressively seeking to grow the job market and overcome numerous vacancies, restoring the fiscal health of the area.  According to Township Supervisor Mandy Grewal, area officials are “getting out there and outlining the benefits to businesses of locating” in the community. 

According to Paula Gardner of, “Pittsfield Township shares the region’s largest office market with Ann Arbor” where “5.7 million square feet of offices and high-tech ‘flex’ space clusters around South State Street.” And while many buildings are vacant at the moment, the township’s bid for a Costco and the selection of the area by Systems in Motion (an information technology services company) to locate 1,100 jobs offer new hope for the area.
