LANSING – A $33 million project that will remake a block of downtown Lansing goes before the Lansing City Council on Monday.

The Lake Trust building will be converted into a mixed-use structure with 23,461 square feet of office/commercial space and 44 multifamily apartments on four floors.
The new building includes 116 residential units and 3,500 square feet of commercial space.
