Housing Developments Proposed to Revitalize Downtown Lansing
Lansing Mayor Andy Schor and other stakeholders recently joined New Vision Lansing, LLC to share their ambitious plan to build a dynamic mixed-use project and three properties near Michigan’s Capitol that would include the city’s tallest building.
The development is aimed at bringing up to 450 residential units, parking, retail, office space, entertainment, and green spaces to Downtown Lansing to provide mixed-use building space and workforce housing. The proposal was for an estimated $215 million, with part of the financing coming from $40 million in state appropriations set aside for affordable housing.
The project is spearheaded by the father-son duo of Paul and John Gentilozzi of Gentilozzi Real Estate Inc., along with JFK Investment Co., owned by the Kosik family of Bloomfield Hills and led by Joseph Kosik. The Christman Co. has been tapped as the construction manager, while Hobbs+Black is the architect.
