The article reports on Greater Ann Arbor Research tech in Michigan which needs a facelift and an owners' association to compete with newer, neighboring parks when the economy turns around, according to the Washtenaw Development Council and owners in the park. The Greater Ann Arbor Research Park on South State Street has about 23 buildings, with about a 20 percent vacancy rate according to Donna Shirilla, director of existing businesses with the Washtenaw Development Council (WDC). As the park is older, it looks outdated and the high vacancy rate makes it appear deserted, according to a WDC report done in the spring of 2002.
