The NEW Center is an 11,000 square foot building conveniently located between Downtown Ann Arbor, Highway 14, and Highway 23, with on-site parking. Opened in 1993 to offer affordable office space to nonprofits in Washtenaw County, the NEW Center now houses more than 20 nonprofit offices with an additional 12 affiliate organizations.  NEW accepts applications for tenants when office space is available.

“It is so nice to have the NEW staff in the building. When your landlord shares your space it creates a unique relationship. I like having names and faces together and it’s nice to be able to walk down the hall to ask a question or report a problem. It also creates a community feeling that your in it with us. If there is a building problem your dealing with it each day too so we know our doing all you can to fix it ASAP.” – Heather Brescol – KingCare
