Red Cedar Renaissance
The project, located at 203 S. Clippert St, will bring new life to Michigan Avenue by building a strong connection between Lansing, East Lansing and MSU. Almost 10 years in the making, the $250 million development will include student housing, market-rate apartments, two hotels and an assisted living facility, as well as restaurants, retail space, public park space and a connection to the Lansing River Trail. This transformational project, when completed, is expected to create 300 new jobs in the city. Since the official groundbreaking in October 2019, earth moving and site prep activities have been well underway. Included in the project will be a twenty-acre park with trails and water features open to the public. The project will also retain and naturally clean millions of gallons of rainwater runoff, which currently run directly into the Red Cedar and then the Grand River whenever there is a heavy downpour. The result will be a cleaner river for the public to walk along, wade, fish, canoe and kayak in.
