Lansing Approves Red Cedar Project

The Lansing city council has approved the $250 million Red Cedar Development project along Michigan Avenue on a 7-to-1 vote. 

Our media partners at WLNS-TV report that the approval comes in the face of concerns that the project relies too heavily on student housing. It will include a mix of housing units, two hotels, a parking facility, restuarants and more. 

Council vice president Peter Spadafore was the only "no" vote.
