Construction of a four-level parking deck at the new hospital is scheduled to be completed this fall. The structure will include 654 parking spots, as well as 10 electric vehicle charging stations. The first level will be open to the public, with the second level reserved for physicians and those in leadership positions. Staff will be able to park on the third and fourth levels.
The parking ramp allows McLaren Greater Lansing to maximize surrounding real estate and allow for future development at the health care campus. The ramp also provides parking closer to the hospital, out-patient care center, and cancer center.
LANSING – A Lansing nonprofit serving at-risk children and families has its eyes on parts of the soon-to-be vacant McLaren Greater Lansing campus.
Child and Family Charities has proposed taking over five buildings on McLaren’s Greenlawn campus to consolidate its services that are currently spread across Lansing. If the plan advances, Child and Family Charities would move into the buildings once McLaren fully vacates the spaces in early 2022.
“We just want to get everything together in one location,” Child and Family Charities CEO Julie Thomasma said.
Child and Family Charities does not currently have a formal agreement with McLaren to purchase or use the property, Thomasma said. McLaren officials did not respond to a request for comment Tuesday.
If the plan moves forward, Child and Family Charities would move its teen shelter to the McRee House, house families in the smaller residential properties, put a drop-in center in the educational center and consolidate other services for at-risk children and families in the administrative and professional buildings, according to the proposal.
