LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) - It used to be known as the Cadillac Club an entertainment destination, now the address in Reo Town will now belong to a church.
For the past year Pastor Noel Heikkinen says it's been a dream for Riverview Church to turn the old Cadillac Club into their third Sunday service location.
"When we looked at the Lansing location and a lot of area were there was a lot of revitalization in the area, that had easy access to bus lines, the river trail, reo town was the perfect location," said Riverview Church Pastor Noel Heikkinen.
A location that had the support of hundreds, who packed into council chambers Monday to show their support.
But Council Member Brian Jefferies says not everyone found the idea a perfect fit.
"What we were hearing from the planning department is that this was an area that wanted to remain completely commercial and retail," said Council Member Brian Jefferies.
But the church says they'll be doing more than just praying.
"We'll have a section that can be both banquet space and be used for the churches on the weekend," Pastor Heikkinen said, space the church says will bring tax revenue into the city.
Committe Chair Brian Jefferies says a good thing about the approval, it will fill a void in Reo Town, which includes 14 empty buildings and they haven't had a legitimate offer on Cadillac Club in four years.
An accepted offer that now moves forward.
"In a place like Reo Town, where they can walk there, live there, eat there, where they can worship there, it's going to bring a lot more than a church to that city," Pastor Heikkinen said.
Riverview Church plans to break ground next week and hopes to have the church up and running by next Easter.
