  • It wouldn't be anything if they wanted their RACER Trust lands, back. But why wouldn't they build their battery plant next door to their existing plant? The reason we did the 425 with Delta years ago was exactly because they'd have future land to ex…
  • Some renderings from the Brownfield plan presented for Pleasant Grove & Holmes: Current site:

  • Looks like the LEDC is helping get Stadium North across from Riverfront Apartments going. I think they eventually plan to buy up the northwest corner of the block, and I hope they do, because I'm not a fan of having the "butt" end of the property fa…
  • No, the $200 mil isn't for the whole plan, just for the terminal building. That's ridiculous, quite frankly; they need to be planning for something considerably less than that.
  • Yeah, most likely this funding we landed - pun intended - will go towards tarmac or runway repair. BTW, got around to actually looking back through the masterplan, and was kind of shocked to see them estimating a terminal replacement would cost $…
  • You would not want to live right up next to MLK on a ground floor. It's really why this site should have been zoned for something much more substantial. Between the noise level, and like Union Missionary Baptist, right in a dangerous curve, you don'…
  • Not an actual site plan, so they aren't going to have it detailed; they haven't even sold the land, yet.
  • No, the planning board agenda makes clear that they front MLK. The new zoning I'm pretty sure requires that.
  • Look like it's going to be two-story stacked flats, which is they share an entrance would technically be multi-family, but really just function as stacked (side-by-side) duplexes. I was hoping for something a bit more substantial for a site right on…
  • Hotel construction earlier this month from the project's Twitter account: I hadn't been southbound on US-127 in quite a few months to go any further south that Michigan, so it was quite a site to see the skyline growing at this project. The s…
  • A purchase agreement is being planned for the purchase of city-owned property on West Hillsdale and MLK which used to be home of Union Missionary Baptist before they moved into the MLK median. Apparently, a DeWitt-based company (https://www.gryphon-…
  • Apparently, the Izzos are co-owners of the building. Cool. And they already have two tenants. BTW, their facebook page shows they broke-ground for the Hyatt House Hotel and Marriott AC Hotel on December 9th at Red Cedar Renaissance. I'd not heard…
  • Ah, got in contact with someone in the twp, and this makes more sense. The TIF is actually structured so that the TIF district doesn't get ALL revenue on the tax value increase. A TIF is usually structured where they get 100% of the taxable value in…
  • Yeah, it's all quite confusing; like, I have no idea what a "20% pass-through" is, for one. I see the Lansing Mall gets $3 million for something, but I'm not sure what. But, yeah, it sounds like Saginaw eventually gets better streetscapes in parts.
  • Delta Crossings is the new one on the north side of Saginaw just west of the freeway; Brookside is the land along Carrier Creek on the south side of Saginaw across from Carrabba's. But, the more I think of this, the more I wonder if they aren't usi…
  • Was looking through the township boards agenda as it related to the 425 Agreement, and came across something else I'd missed. In February, the board approved the creation of the Saginaw Highway Corridor Improvement Act (CIA) as a way to use the new …
  • Looks like Committee of the Whole just unanimously greenlit each of the GM-related issues on the agenda, so this should pass council tonight in the same fashion. Pretty big thing we landed, though it was always the point of the original 425 with the…
  • It's in next week's council agenda. GM subsidiary requesting a Michigan Strategic Fund Renaissance Zone designation, and an Industrial Facilities Exemption, the latter of which exempts a company from personal (and/or real) property taxes for 1-to-1…
  • Their concept in Detroit seems to work, but they just have a lot more people and money to work with in a big city. Detroit Shipping Company is a competent business model, I'm just not sure it fits with Lansing. What I do think some people are mis…
