  • LSJ has a story on the Lake Trust property: LANSING – A $33 million project that will remake a block of downtown Lansing goes before the Lansing City Council on Monday. Called the 500 Block Project, the mixed use development will start with…
  • The mass timber STEM facility is coming along quite well: http://www.grangerconstruction.com/michigans-first-clt-mass-timber-structure-midway-review/
  • Gb, I noticed what you've noticed. These have peaked roofs, so the design must have changed: https://twitter.com/WielandBuilds/status/1174820543717138432
  • No, the switch-over doesn't happen until next year.
  • I really want to find out how many spaces they are building. I remember even when they had the LPD North Precinct in a significant part of the space under renovation, that even with all of the cop cars and their personal cars, the lot was never fil…
  • This one comes back before the Planning Commission, next week. They'ved revised the site plan and renderings: https://eastlansing.granicus.com/MetaViewer.php?view_id=2&event_id=1970&meta_id=83685 What I found odd is that instead of 15…
  • Big news. Next week's council agenda was just posted and a brownfield plan has been submitted to the council for the 500 block of South Washington/South Capitol. •Phase I – Building 1 – 501 S. Capitol office building renovation into a mixed-us…
  • Site prep begins Monday: LANSING — Workers will be on site at the former Red Cedar golf course Monday to begin prepping the riverfront property for construction. Meanwhile, developers are asking City Council for an exception to Lansing's nois…
  • Another parking lot. Looks like northern end of the Motor Wheels factory site between Saginaw and Oakland has been paved over. It's weird to me they'd do this unless it also means they are gearing up to build (or at least market) the additional re…
  • I really think it's kind of template for what can be done at the Kroger and Logan Square. I just wish council would come up with an ordinance, already, that would mandate/require any future lots or redos of existing lots have so many islands with t…
  • It looks like most of the trees have been planted at the new self-storage facility where EDS used to reside. They are ornamnetal trees (beautiful colors), and they are going to look really great when fully matured. So happy to see that parking lot…
  • With all of the rezoning and special use permit procedures completed, the Lansing City Pulse is finally doing a story on the Genesee Street School. And we find out the tentative schedule for the renovation: New World Flood sold it to a new in…
  • East Lansing is gearing up for this, too. From tonight's East Lansing City Council meeting: During his report, East Lansing Mayor Mark Meadows encouraged East Lansing Department of Public Works staff to get involved in conversations with the City…
  • New rendering and progress from the general contractor: I liked it better when it had some light-colored trimming, quite frankly. Fortunately, it looks like it's turning out better in reality than the cheap rendering.
  • The "Below the Stacks" mural festival is really bringing color to the city. I noticed one of the murals along a building on East Oakland, today. Here is one example from their facebook account: Edit: https://www.lansingcitypulse.com/stories/a-s…
  • Yep, the Target is around 23,000 sq ft and Meijer will be around 37,000 sq ft. I drove by the Target this morning; it's still looked as busy as it was the first time I saw it. I bet the Meijer market will be quite successful.
  • https://redesignhealthcare.mclaren.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/01/updated-site-plan.png Yep.
  • Found this picture on their website from a few days ago: https://redesignhealthcare.mclaren.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/before-and-after.jpg Looks like the University Club parking lot entrance is pretty well lined up with this new street.

  • Yeah, I think we're looking a bit southeast, here. The hospital stretches out the long way from west-to-east perpendicular to the freeway. It looks like we're looking southeast from the club parking lot entrance/exit closest to the freeway? Is th…
