A $100 million mixed-use economic development project in Lansing is getting a boost from an Ohio developer.
Voters in Lansing approved putting the old Red Cedar park on the market. The plan has been to create a mix of residential, retail and other commercial space on the land which sits on the border of Lansing and East Lansing.
Frank Kass is the CEO of Continental Real Estate. The Ohio businessman signed on to the project this past week.
He says in addition to retail and residential space they also plan to build a top-notch hotel and conference space.
“We want them here. So we want to put them on a site… where they can eat on the site….have a great room on the site….have a great conference facility on the site…that’s what we want to do,” says Kass.
Kass expects the project will be complete by the fall of 2017. Officials plan to break ground on the project next year.
