'Monstrosity'

Niowave expansion wows public officials, ticks off neighbors

by Sam Inglot
Hahn said the addition of a threestory, 14,000-square-foot pole barn to the Niowave, Inc., facilities on the northwest corner of Seymour Avenue and West Kilborn Street has completely blocked out sunshine to his adjacent home to the north of 17 years.

He’s moving into the Herrmann house, built in 1893, on Lansing Community College’s campus after it’s renovated in September. At his last college presidency job in Illinois, he orchestrated several passive-learning classrooms (think Civil War history painted on the walls of an algebra classroom) and a museum.
