Of the 359 apartments in SkyVue, 145 will have one bedroom, 88 will have two bedrooms and 126 will have four bedrooms and four bathrooms, Marshall said.
Marshall estimated that the project could be online by July 2017.
LANSING – The Valdosta, Georgia-based company behind a $77-million, nine-story mixed-used project at the former Story Olds site on Michigan Avenue is determined to avoid any potential flood plain pitfalls.
Matthew Marshall, vice president of Rise Real Estate, said SkyVue’s design plans are expected to be presented to Ingham County Drain Commissioner Pat Lindemann “in a few weeks” so the project can stick to its goal of a November groundbreaking.
“It’s about working together with the community,” Marsahll said Wednesday of the process, “and making sure ultimately that what we build works with the community.”
Lindemann said he’s perplexed by the lack of communication he’s experienced with SkyVue developers and Bob Trezise, president and CEO of the Lansing Economic Area Partnership, and looks forward to finally hearing about the plans.
“When they bring it in, I’ll give it due justice,” Lindemann said of SkyVue’s plan. “We’ll see what they have to offer.”
“I want this to happen,” Lindemann said. “I’m not going to be an obstructionist.”
