LANSING - A project to redevelop the former Knapp's department store project passed another hurdle this afternoon.

The Michigan Strategic Fund board approved a renaissance zone to eliminate most state and local taxes on the building and for tenants for 12 years.

East Lansing-based Eyde Co. wants to turn the historic building at the corner of Washington Square and Washtenaw Street into a facility for retailers, office space, a business incubator, high-end apartments and underground parking.
