Stadium North

Looks like prep work began on Stadium North Lofts, this week. They've closed off the eastern-most lane of Cedar from approximately Saginaw Street to just before Shiawassee. I believe BWL or Consumers has some structure on a tiny plot of land which the site surrounds that they need to relocated or something.

Anyway, one will be family housing (66 units, 1 to up to 3 bedrooms) at a (slightly?) lower price-point than a lot of the new stuff they've built downtown, and the other building will be independent senior living (66 units, 1 or 2 bedrooms). I believe the family housing is the one that will front Cedar with the senior housing centered more in the interior of the site.

  • Nice. This may not be the most impressive project but I'm really happy to see it actually happening. The Cedar/Larch corridor has a lot of potential to grow.
  • I agree. Nothing that will awe anyone, but this type of infill will bring a lot more life and activity to this corridor.
  • I'm always of the opinion that more people living downtown will lead to more development, and support what's already there. It's not a thrilling project, but it is good infill. I think adding different ages and incomes will only help the downtown area. Hopefully they don't "value engineer" the hell out of it.
  • It is great that this area is being turned into a residential neighborhood. The design is so standard these days, why I don't know! I think the small blocks of retail buildings on Shiawassee could turn into an urban village center. As has been pointed out before, they really need to calm the traffic in this area for safety and ascetic considerations. I believe that now with even more people living downtown the new food court/game club will be successful.
