  • Maybe in practice, you guys are saying the same thing. As township residents, they would lose services due to debt repayment. But as part of the city, Lansing could create a special district by which taxes collected within the district are funneled …
  • Huge density improvement over the stupid parking lot that was there.
  • It kills me to say this, but at this rate, EL is going to have a better skyline than Lansing.
  • Yeah, he owns Dymaxion, which is part of Urban Systems. Was TA Forsberg the developer proposing the apartments on St. Joe? Asking because Brent is also part of Urban Systems. It seems to be a collaboration of like-minded dudes that formed to compe…
  • @hood haha, that address looks like People's Kitchen. He (or his wife) are part of the ownership group for the restaurant. I'm not a business person/developer, so it's funny to me to see all of these LLCs associated to basically one business. For f…
  • @hood Those Mall Ct addresses might be owned by Dymaxion, which is part of Urban Systems. The mailing address for them is 503 Mall Ct Ste 312, which is basically just the UPS Store in Frandor.
  • @MichMatters yep, I view this the same as you. An advertisement aimed at investors. Still fun to talk about and imagine though. @hood I haven't asked him much. I know his vision is reclaiming, repurposing, infilling, and creating a more walkable …
  • I know my friend is working on the old Lake Trust site, so I'm assuming the colored buildings on the rendering are all their proposed projects. It looks like a tall (for Lansing) apartment proposal over 496, probably with some mixed use on the groun…
  • A friend of mine is part of Urban Systems. He's told me about the idea to build above 496 to connect downtown to REO a few years ago. When he described it, I didn't realize that he meant substantial buildings like this, I had something smaller pictu…
  • If the entire township folded into Lansing, that's a big win for the city and the region. I could see this for the NE and western chunks of the township. Who knows what happens with the farm land adjacent to MSU ag areas. It probably makes more sens…
  • I've been wanting a Trader Joe's in the area forever, but if I knew it would take the place of Golden Wok...
  • I can smell that screenshot
  • Kyle edited the article with this: Editor’s note: This story has been corrected to clarify that migration trends examined by CommercialCafe were between metropolitan statistical areas, as defined by the U.S. Census Bureau — which locally includes …
  • ...I'm not seeing much of a wonderful change, but I'm not a partisan either. *shrug*
  • You need an LSJ subscription to read it, but there's some disagreement within Delta Township and the developer of the new Delta Crossing about if and how the developer might get additional incentives from the township to complete Phase 2 (the reside…
  • I wonder which proposed use is getting replaced with this mini storage; the restaurant, hotel, office, or bank...or all of the above.
  • I hate Lansing Township as a jurisdiction. Everything about their existence, their borders, and the way that they operate as a government is an abomination. I know annexation isn't happening, so I wish that Delta residents and Lansing Township resid…
  • Disappointed to see a population decrease within the city limits in the last census. Breakdown by community via Bridge Michigan * Lansing 112,644 (-1,653) -1.4% * Lansing Township 8,143 (17) 0.2% * Dewitt 4,776 (269) 6% * Dewitt Township 4,776…
  • That Waverly Golf Course development is the worst. Honestly, it seems better off to leave it greenspace than to do what they're planning. Seriously, a car wash. I'm so annoyed with that project.
  • Great article today in the LSJ for subscribers only discussing the possibilities and options for downtown in light that many State of Michigan employees will remain remote workers. Ideas included redeveloping vacant office buildings into condos and …
