      The Ypsilanti High School located on Cross Street was built in 1915 at a cost of $122,000 and remained in use until 1973 when the current high school was opened.  The district used the old high school as a community building until it was closed in 1995. In 1997 the school board received proposals from multiple organizations to put the building to a new use.  ACD was ultimately selected to purchase the 160,000 square-foot building and convert it into the 104 unit apartment complex for senior citizens now known as Cross Street Village.  Rehabilitation in excess of $10 million of costs was completed in 2000 with the assistance of an award of LIHTCs through the Michigan State Housing Development Authority, and an Affordable Housing Program grant through the Federal Home Loan Bank of Indianapolis.  The property has been placed on the National Register of Historic Places.  The award pictured below was presented to American Community Developers, Inc. and Elisabeth Knibbe Architects by the Michigan Historic Preservation Network at the Cross Street Village grand opening on May 15th, 2001.
