Home improvement, grocery stores in Towne Center plans

February 23, 2007

Lansing and area residents could pick up their groceries at a new grocery store, then head over to grab home improvement items at the Towne Center development near Main and Mary streets, under a plan outlined Thursday night to Lansing City Council members.

Chase Simmons, an attorney representing a group of developers, told council members about the plans during a work session at City Hall.

Simmons said Lowe's, a national home improvement chain, had signed a contract with the developers to locate in the center. Negotiations continue with the grocer.

The city will be asked to approve an as-yet-unspecified package with the developers that likely will include tax-increment financing.
