Red Cedar Project Moving Forward

Posted: Updated:

LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) – Local developers and business advocates came together Wednesday night for a public forum at the Lansing Center to update the community on the progress of the multi-million dollar, mixed use Red Cedar Renaissance project.
"We're trying hard to get this moving along," said Joel Ferguson, project developer and MSU trustee chairman who estimates the project will bring thousands of jobs to the area over the course of the next few years.

Ferguson and project partner Frank Cass of Ohio-based Continental Real Estate Companies say redevelopment of the old Red Cedar Golf Course just south of the Frandor shopping center in Lansing will include market-rate housing, retail establishments, a medical facility, restaurants and entertainment outlets.

Before work can begin, however, the Ingham County drain commissioner must finish studies and site surveys to ensure the environmental feasibility of the project, as it sits on the Red Cedar River. "We're not only going to clean the water, but we're going to create jobs," said Drain Commissioner Pat Lindemann. "This is a spectacular opportunity for us to increase the quality of life and the opportunity for citizens of this community."

More public forums will be held over the course of the next few months. About 50 people were in attendance at Wednesday's meeting. For more information on the Red Cedar project, click here.
