Greenamyre developments win approvals
Lansing Plans for two retail/office developments in Lansing are working their way through the regulatory maze.
The Lansing City Council on Thursday gave its approval to a preliminary development plan for a 5,000-square-foot expansion to the Main Street Center, 800 N. Main St. Wednesday, the Lansing Planning Commission recommended approval by the council for a planned development with about 30,000 square feet of space near the intersection of Main Street and Fairlane.
Both projects are planned by Development Inc., the Leavenworth-based company operated by the Greenamyre family.
In approving plan for the Main Street Center expansion, City Council members raised one concern: Where an existing Commerce Bank ATM machine would be relocated.
Council member Harland Russell, who noted the amount of use the ATM generated, said he hoped the machine would remain in Lansing. "I'd hate to see us lose it," he said.
With the council's approval, Development Inc. now will be asked to submit a final development plan for consideration by the Planning Commission and City Council.
The Fairlane Development proposal was recommended for approval without conditions. It now will be forwarded to the City Council for consideration.
If the plans ultimately win approval, Jeremy Greenamyre has said Development Inc. would probably break ground on the projects in spring 2005.
