Description
- Developer | Owner | Manager: Lansing Housing Commission

- Proposed as an apartment complex for low income seniors in September 1969, the building is formally opened on September 28, 1971 and is dedicated to and named Oliver Towers after Ann Oliver, president of the Lansing Housing Commission from 1966 to 1968.

- On February 6, 2000, a disgruntled resident sets fire to the building destroying the lobby and causing extensive smoke damage to the rest of the tower. The city closed the towers, relocating the residents to other Lansing Housing Commission properties around the city.
