$132M project would bring 12-story buildings to downtown East Lansing
EAST LANSING - A Chicago developer is proposing a $132 million development that would sharply transform downtown East Lansing.
Harbor Bay Real Estate Advisors hopes to build a 12-story apartment building on the 100 block of East Grand River Avenue along with a six-story parking deck along Albert Avenue with a six-story senior housing complex built on top.
The developer and city officials made the announcement Wednesday morning inside the vacant Ned's Bookstore.
"This is an exciting project for the redevelopment of downtown," said East Lansing Mayor Mark Meadows. "This changes Albert Avenue from a back street to a main street."
