  • Looks like the LSJ has done a story on this project this morning, though it appears they got a few numbers/figures wrong: Meridian Township green lights development to create a downtown Okemos OKEMOS — Meridian Township leaders have app…
  • Were they yet tearing down the existing shop or just working behind it? Sounds like maybe the new building will be centered more towards the central part of the lot instead of on the corner.
  • Thanks for the article, Darklink. It answers a question I had of the Victor-to-Edgewood MLK resurfacing project I talked about last month. I guess that's what an "asphalt inlay of the outside two lanes" meant, simply taking out the concrete and pu…
  • Complete Hitch requested - and was granted - a vacation of a ROW behind the property back in September. The right-of-way was of LaBelle Street, which continued west past Edgewood, but was never developed as a street, of course. It actually seperat…

  • So income is capped at $31k but rent is up to $830. Right, up to. 550 for that level of income for a single person isn't ridiculous.
  • The LSJ picked up on this one, finally. It also gives a history of all of the proposals for the site: https://www.lansingstatejournal.com/story/news/2019/07/11/development-ottawa-butler-block-lansing-apartments-lc-companies/1584283001/ LA…
  • Check out this artistic depiction of the Capitol Park Motor Hotel in the 1960's. The motel portion was at the southwest corner of Capitol and Lenawee where the Michigan Catholic Conferences headquarters are today. To the right, you see the existin…

  • More of the new CATA shelters are going up, I saw this one a few days ago on Cedar. Apparently, they are more than just shelters: https://twitter.com/RideCATA/status/1141370135556571136
  • Another full view of the art installation on the North Grand garage from Downtown Lansing's twitter account: It is kind of crazy the change a little color can make to an environment.
  • I believe this is tweet shows one of the buildings: https://twitter.com/WielandBuilds/status/1146551834410213377
  • Found the full set of drawings of this one on the architects website: http://www.oakcc.net/designs/5.Under Construction/Metro Place - Lansing, MI/Plans/6.15.18 FULL DRAWING PACKAGE.pdf Elevations start on page 39. Looks like the facade will b…
  • At next Monday's Development & Planning Committee, it looks like the owners of the Motor Wheels property are trying to restart the redevelopment of the partially redeveloped warehouse portion of the site. They are requesting an Obsolete Propert…
