TECUMSEH, MI (Toledo News Now) -

People who want to live in downtown Tecumseh will soon have a new place they can call home.  Apartments there are being redone, some of which have been sitting vacant for decades.

Renovations at six apartment units on the second and third floors above Tecumseh Antiques and More, and two units above Carpet on Wheels will be paid for mostly by a $287,000 grant from the State of Michigan.

"It's just a win-win. It helps generate additional income for our property owners to help them maintain their historic building," said Paula Holtz, Economic Development Director of Tecumseh. "It generates additional traffic in our downtown and it helps create affordable living."

Nearly half of the apartments will be for low-to-moderate income renters.  All the units are located in the four corners section of downtown.

"We do get requests right now that we can't fulfill for people who want to live in downtown Tecumseh," said Holtz. "It's a really nice place to live, it's really nice to be right at the center of town and have a lot of activity."

Work on the apartments is scheduled to get underway after Labor Day, with the apartments ready to be rented out before the end of the year.
