Redevelopment plan for downtown Lansing

LANSING, Michigan (WILX) – Mayor Andy Schor announced today that the historic 113-year-old train station, formerly Clara’s Restaurant, at 637 E. Michigan Avenue in downtown Lansing, is headed towards redevelopment.

The Lansing Brownfield Redevelopment Authority (LBRA) and the City of Lansing are working with the Gillespie Group to redevelop the property. The redevelopment plan for this now vacant building provides for mixed-use areas for the entire community.

“The redevelopment of the Michigan Avenue Corridor train station will be the latest project to further revitalize the Stadium District in downtown Lansing,” said Mayor Schor.

The Gillespie Group has been investing and renovating downtown Lansing for more than a decade. This new plan follows their latest project, the BLOCK600.

“Transforming the stadium district and this historic site into something that the whole community can enjoy was a priority for us,” said Pat Gillespie, President of the Gillespie Group.

The LBRA approved this plan during its meeting on Friday April 9, 2021 and Lansing City Council will receive the plan for consideration during its meeting on Monday April 12, 2021.
