City Hall building

I remember a few years back there were 4 proposals to revamp the city hall building in to a hotel. Has anyone heard anything new about this or, is this just another Idea that got flushed? The last update that i found was from 2017. Since then, any details if any, have been hard to find. If anyone knows more than i do, fill me in! I was excited about the tallest rendering "Westin Hotel" ...Thank you.

    To this point, the proposal documents listed are all ive heard. https://lansingsave.com/1634/City-Hall-Development-Proposals
  • Here's the existing thread: https://develop.metrolansing.com/discussions/discussion/comment/12482#Comment_12482
    My opinion hasn't changed; I not interested in the city being moved out of the existing building. I'd like to see them renovate it. Let someone building a hotel at the corner of Michigan and Grand or Walnut and Allegan if they want a view. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  • I got the feeling that this pretty much died when Virg left office without a deal signed. It seemed it was something he was pushing for hard and Mayor Andy hasn't made it a priority. Now with Covid this is really dead considering governments are strapped for cash and building a new City Hall will create an out-of-touch perception.
  • Jared, is there a way to merge this with the original thread or move these comments to that one?
  • I don't think so. I think the best we can do is lock the thread and point people to the original thread. I'll lock it now.
