Personally I don't think this project will go through. Given the fact that most of the other mixed-use and residential projects in the area are on hold because of the economy. Plus I don't think the Lansing area could support a third "downtown".

LANSING TWP. - Vacant land surrounding Eastwood Towne Center could see an influx of activity with a handful of new restaurants, shops, condos, a boutique hotel and a parking ramp.
Plans are in the works for an $85 million, 15-acre mixed-use development on Preyde Boulevard east of NCG Eastwood Cinemas and north of Champps Restaurant and Bar.
The Lansing Township Downtown Development Authority hopes to receive $29 million in federal Recovery Zone Bonds and start construction next spring.
The DDA would build the parking deck and some commercial space, while private developers would construct the rest.
