Gillespie’s ‘Midtown’ plan
By City Pulse Staff

Wednesday, Oct. 30 — Developer Pat Gillespie is scheduled to break ground Thursday on his “Midtown” project on Lansing’s eastern border. The mixed-use residential/commercial building is at the former site of the Silver Dollar Saloon, which was demolished over four years ago.
The planned 66 “eclectic, high-end urban flats” at 3411 E. Michigan Ave. is near the Lansing/East Lansing border. The development also includes plans for a 1,800-square-foot PNC Bank branch. It’s expected to be completed in August, shortly before the completion date of the first phase of Gillespie’s Marketplace project downtown.
A Chinese character pronounced “jia,” translated as “home,” is part of the building’s logo. “The logo is intended to start a conversation with the community about the value of engaging Chinese, and all international students at Michigan State University, in order to expand on a shared idea for global Michigan,” the press release says.
