Love the new Broad museum. And the other buildings are nice, too. Glad to see that MSU is getting some world-class architecture.

Buried in a July State News article:

On July 20, the East Lansing City Council approved a site plan for another project, an eight-story, mixed-use building at 200 Albert Ave.

Other developments include adding stories to buildings that house The Post Bar, 213 Ann St., and rebuilding 215 and 217 Ann St. for mixed and residential use.

Apologies if some of this has been discussed before. Just posting in case any of it is new.

Here's some updates on Lansing area projects:

First off, the Accident Fund Headquarters is essentially complete, I believe they will begin moving in within a month or two. I'll post pictures when I take new ones.

A new electric/steam cogeneration natural gas power plant will soon begin construction at Washington Ave & South St in REO Town. It's replacing some of the units in the nearby Moores Park Plant, the one with the three big smoke stacks. They will also renovate the old train station on the site.

More info on The Lansing Board of Water & Light's Website

A new 20 ft tall stainless steel sculpture will soon be installed on the riverfront near the City Market:

There is also a year round iceless skating rink proposed right across from the sculpture:

Also there is a small three story mixed use building proposed for the corner of Michigan Ave & Marshall St at the site of an abandoned gas station.

Here's two proposed retail/residential developments right next to each other facing the Ann Street Plaza in Downtown East Lansing. Both are proposed to break ground this year:

Why no posts about the demolition of the MSU smokestack with the "MSC" letters? I read that they are saving the letters as a memorial. That would be nice. That is probably the most recognizable landmark of the MSU campus to this Wolverine (probably because you could see it from the football stadium.)
