  • Apparently the city is getting ready to remove the islands on MLK between Ionia and Lenawee and turning the street into 5 lanes. Did I miss this? Has it been discussed here? The City Pulse article isn't very clear on what this will actually look lik…
  • It'd be kinda pitiful if they couldn't even pull the New Vision project off with $40 million free money. That being said, it wouldn't be at all surprising to me if the price tag for everything proposed is higher than the $215 million figure they wer…
  • A small new project announced out at MSU: A packaging school expansion that will relocate the satellite dish farm south of the existing building to make way for an addition that will double their current space. The addition will cost $25 million and…
  • Looks like it's just grant money for further clean up. It certainly should bode well for finally landing a development there. https://www.wilx.com/2024/01/30/former-lansing-assembly-plant-secures-state-funding-redevelopment/
  • Not only that but they're still tearing down the school. That is probably the least offensive building on that corner.
  • That's all good news as far as I'm concerned. I'm particularly glad that development of the Washington & Hillsdale corner wont be hindered by that commercial buildings incorporation into The Ovation, I'd love to see a mid/high rise there someday…
  • Agreed. The whole process has been a racket from the start.
  • It was the first thing I thought about when they selected this site, imo getting the parking lot as well should have been a precondition of this site being selected. These sorts of decisions/oversights are why I have so little faith in the city as o…
  • I'm very, very disappointed that they seem to have no intention of buying that lot. I was hoping for a plaza on the corner and a nice facade renovation maybe with a small addition on the blank wall that is on the south side of the building. If that …
  • One of the most interesting and unique abandoned properties in the entire metro area may be falling into the hands of Eaton County's Land Bank. Details are unclear and there's no mention if the Land Banks acquisition of the properties may mean more …
  • A bit of what I consider to be good news: The Rescue Mission appears to be selling their buildings on Michigan Ave. The Mission wins by selling their smaller, more valuable properties to pay for a much larger one; the city wins by getting one of the…
  • Sounds like utilities will be included with Hepler's apartments so it makes that rent a little more palatable. Realistically the concept of "affordable" new construction is just plain silly. New construction generally runs $150k+ per unit, even a…
  • I just checked CPIX and the property isn't being marketed on there, I thought it was before. I can imagine demand not being off-the-charts over there but I can't imagine the best they could do is a single car wash. Something must be up.
  • Every one of those developments is mentioned in the article
  • The LSJ did an article on Meridian Twp developments to watch, the most notable thing to me would seem to be the absence of the Okemos & Hamilton development. I did not know that the four floor building at Newton & Saginaw was already up. The…
  • There's an LSJ article on upcoming developments in Lansing. Apparently the Gentilozzi projects will be seeking council approval "soon" and aim to start a 90 day brownfield clean up for the tower site in March. It's also mentioned that the new buildi…
  • IMO The city is just going to have to figure out how to clean up the Consumers site enough for residential/mixed use, that land being redeveloped in the right way could be a huge positive for that neighborhood and the city. The large river front par…
  • I read that article and Couch's rebuttal to it in the LSJ. It's a just dim-witted poor take the likes of which I've come to expect from today's hollowed-out newspapers. Not many legit journalists out there these days, there's no shortage of this kin…
  • The November 7th board meeting minutes give a little more info on the Howard & Michigan project: It will have 168 units of residential in a five floor building with the storage in a four floor building and parking in between the buildings. It's …
  • I was on the newly opened phase I of the MSU to Lake Lansing Trail and through Ranney Park today, I took a few pictures: First the MSU to Lake Lansing trail: View looking east from Hagadorn towards the new bridge: Looking west back at the b…
