  • University Edge at MSU started leasing for the Fall, so we now know the student apartment portion of this will be done by then. Here are some pictures from their facebook page: October: November: December:

  • Made this into a general Eaton County thread. https://twitter.com/BobTrezise/status/1349388892399685633
  • Ranney Park sledding hill is closed until 2022 as part of the drain project. https://twitter.com/LansingPubServ/status/1348688764680491010 Story from Lansing City Pulse here. Apparently, a lot of work has already been done in the south of th…
  • It appears MSUFCU was going to close on the sale of Lot #4 for their new downtown building on Nov 6th when they announced Nov 5 that the property own to the north seemed to be blocking a construction easement they'd need to construct the building. S…
  • Not much on tomorrow's planning board agenda, but a small project I found interest in. It's an upzoning of two unassuming duplex buildings in southwest Lansing on the 3500 west block of Jolly Road. The owner wants to develop more units on these two …
  • Saw the MAR Headquarters again in the daylight, today. Interesting pattern on the facade, but definitely not stone. I thought I remember the council agenda packet showing that it be stone. I'll have to look again.
  • Council agenda next weeks shows a new liquor license has been issued for 212 S Washington. Haven't been down on the square in some time, so does anyone know if Tacos Monterrey is still at this spot?
  • The Michigan Association of Realtors (MAR) Headquarters on Durant Park is coming along nicely. They've started putting up some of the facade. Across the street, it looks like the renovation of LCC's Gannon Ramp is prepping for work; they've already …

  • Cool, thanks. As for routes, it'd seem there'd be room both for paths used for commutes and those used to sight-seeing. Some of my favorite rides have been me just trying to get lost along the route. That's how I found the old steps down the river b…
  • Okay, the connection at Mt. Hope and Aurelius makes sense now that I think about it. I'm less sure how you'd get the path to connect through Fidelity/Crego unless they consider the sidewalk on the northside of Mt. Hope the 'path.' Because the only o…
  • It's not show as a project on any maps, but the draft master plan speaks of a trail connecting the River Trail to the new Bear Lake Trail that would cut through Fenner and Evergreen Cemetery and then travel along Forest Road to the Bear Lake pathway…
  • Also, looking at the public service departments construction map, it appears the two-way conversion downtown is currently rescheduled between May and August of next year. This was updated earlier this month, so this is recent information. Also, l…
  • From the Public Service Departments webpage: On-Going Projects * Moores Park Bridge and the 3 Bridges West of Potter Park: These projects are currently in the process of rehabilitation and will start up again in Spring 2021. * Bridge 18 (ju…
  • These were never beauties, but Gillespie Group is residing Prudden Place up at Larch and Saginaw and bragging about this, but this is not an upgrade, right? I don't get why this kind of siding has become the rage, aesthetically. I bet it's re…
  • The Department of Parks & Rec introduced the 2020-2025 parks Mater Plan to the Council's Committee of the Whole earlier this week. It's a pretty big report, but the important stuff starts at p.189 on the council packet: https://www.lansingmi.…
  • City council unaninmously passed the personal property exemption for TechSmith, reminider, this is like a $225,000 abatement on personal property over ten years on a $15 million investment by TechSmith. Developers usually ask for much more. Though, …
  • I saw that, too. But the funny thing is that there is not any additional information in that that hadn't already been announced. We'd already heard that COVID delayed the conversion this summer, but we still don't know when in 2021 when this is goin…
