The city will team with the Lansing-based Ferguson Development Group, which is led by Joel Ferguson, and Columbus, Ohio-based Continental Real Estate to revitalize the former Red Cedar Golf Club along the border of Lansing and East Lansing.
The $125 million project, to be funded by the two developers, will be a mixed use development combining residential and retail. It will break ground by next spring, developers say.
I hope that when they say "next spring" they are talking about spring 2014. If that's the case then they'll break ground well before East Lansing's Park District project.
Anyway, looking foward to seeing the renderings, though, I do wonder what happened to the Jeromes in all of this.
BTW, can we get the thread title changed? The project is now Red Cedar Renaissance.
I like this plan quite a bit more than the previous one (seems like there are more multi-family buildings and just bigger buildings, in general), as Michigan gets a nice streewall treatment. But, I'm surprised there isn't one parking garage, particularly given that this project is mostly to pay for the environmental remediation of the land to reduce run-off into the Red Cedar. There really needs to be less surface parking. Still, the plan seems to be getting better, at least in terms of its layout.
EDIT: Looks like they took down the website. That was quick.
