City announces plan to give Davenport University the Oliver Towers property in exchange for the college’s downtown campus. Towers would be demolished.
As part of a draft development agreement to be announced today by city officials, Davenport University would move its Lansing campus to the Oliver Towers property at Capitol Avenue and Shiawassee Street and the city would acquire Davenport’s property near the corner of Kalamazoo and Cherry streets. The proposal calls for tearing down the largely vacant Oliver Towers to make room for a new Davenport campus.
