This is a proposal for four, 4-story apartment buildings containing 286 units at 3600 Dunckel, and old hotel property. From the LSJ:
LANSING — A four-building, $52 million apartment complex at the site of a former hotel near the intersection of Dunckel and Collins roads could start construction later this year.
The complex is designed meet the housing needs of new medical professionals who will come to Lansing for jobs at McLaren Greater Lansing's new hospital. The hospital announced in December plans to consolidate operations at its two south Lansing facilities into one $450 million facility near Michigan State University.
“This will be one of the first few incidental positives that comes out of the McLaren announcement," Lansing Mayor Andy Schor said.
The proposed housing development will have four buildings holding 286 market-rate units. The project will include garage parking, an outdoor pool, courtyards, grilling stations, an enclosed outdoor dog park, a clubhouse and a leasing center.
This is a brownfiled plan (#73) and will formally be introduced at the Lansing City Council's July 23 meeting so that the Planning & Development Committee can review it and set a public hearing for it in a few weeks. This starts on page 172 of this week's agenda.
A few interesting things we find out are that they only takes in part of the 12.09 acre 3600 Dunckel parcel, cutting off some of the not-built areas to the north and west and includes the the "Collins Road" parcel in total. In total, this would make these two parcels 9.6 acres.
This is very generic, but I'll give a bit of a pass because 1. it's still really early 2. this is literally at the edge of the city 3. they are at least using some hard surfacing on the facade, and 4. it's appropriately scaled when they could have done something even smaller/generic. I look forward to seeing the site plan. I do want to see them use less vinyl siding, though, and the council should push for some design changes.
