A building damaged by fire in 2009 will soon be demolished. The potholes along the private drive will be filled in. Every unit will be evaluated for necessary upgrades. And tenants who don’t meet leasing standards will be evicted. Those tasks are at the top of the to-do list of Ann Arbor-based McKinley Inc., which took over management of Tuscan Creek on Aug. 16.
The property is located on Stevens Drive, between Mansfield and Hewitt roads off of Congress. The complex, built in 1975, sits on 30 acres. Many in the area will remember the complex by its previous name: Cobble Creek. Over the years, it often has had a reputation as unsafe, based on reports of criminal activity there. More recently, it gained attention when Ann Arbor officials moved many residents of the Old Ann Arbor YMCA to the complex when the Y was demolished.
