Our efforts have laid a solid foundation for the transformation of Downtown Lansing into a thriving hub of vitality, diversity, and opportunity. We’ve dissected the needs, analyzed the market, and devised a comprehensive strategy that aligns with the unique character of our city. The facts are crystal clear, backed by robust data, and the opportunities ahead are substantial.
- Demand is high for downtown housing, catering to different family structures and income levels, and amenities that are accessible within a 15-minute walk.
- Filling identified gaps in retail establishments leads to more residents and, therefore, more traffic. The current top needs in retail are pharmacy, apparel, and home goods.
- Strategic placemaking efforts, non-motorized transit options, and active public spaces have potential to increase economic vitality.
Through meticulous research, intentional investment, and a spirit of collaboration, we are shaping the future of Downtown Lansing.
