  • So income is capped at $31k but rent is up to $830. It’s impossible to live there and meet recognized standards for rent to income ratios. I don’t understand the point of income caps on buildings with rents this high. I see this happen often, i…
  • Delta Township is seeking resident feedback for making updates to their master plan. https://www.deltami.gov/index.php/participate-in-a-community-survey-for-the-2019-delta-township-comprehensive-plan/ Someone claiming to be part of the pro…
  • I was there yesterday and I'm happy to report that business looks good for them. We made reservations, which looks important if you're looking for a seat there on Friday night, but they do have bar seating where walk-ins could get full service while…
  • That was my thought too, which really stinks because you can see how vibrant that neighborhood was before it was leveled. Speaking of, I wish I made it to the history session at CADL where this was discussed.
  • Stumbled across an old video labeled as South Butler from 1966. It's a striking contrast to this stretch of street today. I'm not sure exactly where the video was shot, or the cross street where the gas station can be seen- but it's interesting none…
  • I'm not a developer, so I don't know the costs associated with underground parking, but there must be diminishing returns on this or you'd think he would build underground for parking and use the surface for additional units in dense...or intended d…
  • More information on the Dam alarm here, including a video of what it sounded like for those of us out of range: https://old.reddit.com/r/lansing/comments/bvt76w/whats_with_the_warning_sirens/
  • It seems like they've been working on that land for the last 10 years.
  • They're popular and the inside seating is incredibly limited. Once the weather warms up it's common to have overflow eating or waiting outside.
  • It’s been years so I don’t expect anyone to remember- but we had a discussion about the old Lansing City Limits sign that featured the skyline and the old tower at LCC. Well, thanks to the Lansing Historical Society Facebook group I have it to share…
  • Covered, deleted.
  • I don't frequent this area often, so I don't know the before and after, and I'm sure I'm better off not knowing
  • https://www.wlns.com/amp/news/red-cedar-development-raises-doubts-after-lansing-city-council-meeting/1879105636 The red cedar project came in with another change it seems, and council may have had enough. "It seems that this is our seventh ame…
  • Those were really cool renderings of what could be in that area. Nice vision casting.
  • @gbdinlansing don't sweat it. You and I are similar in that we love Lansing and are interested in discussing development, even if we're not as involved in the process.
  • I’d actually read the Montgomery report too, but social media rumors were adamant that something had changed and the skate park was in jeopardy, I was cynical so I wanted to get the definitive answer from the source. I’m actually kinda stoked o…
  • I'd heard some rumors that the drainage aspect of the project was going to include a tear out and removal of Ranney Skate Park. I ended up contacting the Ingham County Drain Commission and spoke with Pat for a bit. He gave me a lot of information ou…
  • @gbdinlansing if you look at the stacks from an angle you will see how well the new logo represents them. But there's also dual meaning. The logo can also represent growth as a rising bar chart, or it could be seen as progress. It's a pretty great l…
  • The area was previously the Pleasant Grove school district, and from what I've gathered it was rural. In fact, a house stands today on Pleasant Grove/Reo that at one point was part of a farm. I saw the pics of the house then versus today and it was …
  • It's shocking how quickly the skyline of EL will have changed.
