The property, located at 412 Webster Street, Traverse City, currently houses TCAPS Office of the Superintendent, business services, human resources, curriculum, communications, and the printing department. 

Highlights of the agreement include a 90 day inspection period, a deed restriction on short term rentals, and possession at closing.
