  • Was kind of surprised how visible the Deluxe Inn site redevelopment and City View were coming up Washington, today. Even with just that little bit of development, it makes the 496 gap seem smaller than it actually is. I guess I hadn't realized how s…

  • LSJ has an article on City View at the old Lake Trust Credit Union site. It never explicitly mentions that the renovation of the existing building (55 apartments) is complete, but it seems heavily implied. It's also mentioned that the new constructi…
  • There was literally a proposal some years back just for that. It was planned for either the park proper or where Rotary Park is. What all of this takes is vision and seeing a vision through, and we just don't have that kind of civic engagement. Like…
  • A bit more info on the Consumer's service center project at the center of the PA 425 Agreement with Windsor Township. The Lansing site will take 5 years to be remdiated; they are working with the city on resuses of the property, though because of th…
  • Seeing in the upcoming Park Board agenda they are taking about an ice rink in Reutter Park? Where, this would go in the park, I'm not sure.
  • Site prep seems to be well under way. Passed it this morning.
  • It appears the Red Cedar Lodge senior facility and Gateway Lofts are open. Not sure when the opening is planned for the hotels.
  • Story with mention of the Moneyball redevelopment on the 900 west block of Saginaw near the end. He plans to have the project done by either spring or summer of next year. https://www.lansingstatejournal.com/story/news/local/2022/10/31/desmond-fe…
  • Looks like a new plan for this area: https://www.lansingstatejournal.com/story/news/2022/10/27/dublin-square-east-lansing-razed-12-story-high-rise-evergreen-property-500-new-apartments/69596792007/ EAST LANSING — Developers are proposing …
  • Good news on that front, then. The area was rezoned for higher density under the new form-based code. The area north and east of that intersection can be used for single family homes on small lots all the way to small 6-unit apartment buildings or r…
  • Eckert's last boiler was decommissioned in Dec 2020. I don't see anything happening with the Consumers Energy service center site anytime soon. The region just has no recent track record of quickly finding developers for these sites or even any i…
  • Story: Consumers Energy is moving its mid-Michigan operations center — the site from which repair crews are dispatched to fix outages — from Lansing's north side to Windsor Charter Township, the utility company announced Monday night in a news r…
  • In the city council agenda for Monday is a 425 Agreement with Windsor Township for a portion of the township at Canal & Billwood Highway of approximately 78 acres. It appears to be owned by Consumers Energy. 425's are the conditional land…
  • Keep an eye out for this to come back up. A little birdie has told me that this is far from over.
  • For the brownfield plan for the properties at the northeast corner of East Michigan and Marshall, it sounds like the showroom at 1717 will be renovated as a company headquarters including a conference/training room, and the small structure immediate…
  • Looks like the West Saginaw brownfield will be Moneyball Inc.'s new headquarters and retail store. It includes the white building and the adjacent parking lot in this shot: The current building on site will be demolished and a new 1-story bui…
  • I grew up along one of the roads, so I know they are state roads. I have not seen any serious push ever by the city for this, which is where this has to start. I don't think anyone in any position of power, here, has ever even thought it a possibili…
  • They are definitely inching into branching out in terms of planning. First, we got the bike lane on Saginaw, and they are soon to turn Allegan and Ottawa two-way, so it's not as heavy a lift to convince them to relook at at the one-way pairs as it w…
