The future of Lansing City Hall may be on display tonight as four developers present their plans to purchase and develop the 1957 building and plaza. The meeting begins at 5 p.m. in Hall C of the Lansing Center.
Each of the four developers will have 45 minutes to present their vision and plans. They are Beitler Real Estate Services of Chicago; Urban Systems of Okemos; Karp and Associates and Boji Group, both of Lansing.
“One of the proposals would renovate the existing structure and transform it into a hotel,” a press release from Lansing Mayor Virg Bernero’s office Tuesday noted. “Two of the proposals would renovate the existing structure and construct a new tower on the current City Hall plaza, ranging from 12 to 20 stories, each featuring a hotel. The fourth proposal would raze the current structure and construct a 13-story building featuring a hotel and other uses.”
The press release also indicated each of the four developers would also present plans to redevelop or build a new building to serve as a new City Hall
