Downtown Vision Takes Shape

Development prospects for downtown Lansing’s future continue to rise.

New Vision Lansing, a $228 million project to build three new downtown buildings — including a 25-story skyscraper on the Grand River — is expected to move into construction phase in the next few months.

The project involves Gentilozzi Real Estate, a family-owned real estate development firm located in Lansing, in partnership with family-owned Detroit real estate developer and manager JFK Investments. The developers have been working with city and state officials on plans since the project was announced in August. Now developers are ready to start building.

“The entire New Vision of Lansing team is in the starting gate of making our projects a reality,” said Paul Gentilozzi, owner of Gentilozzi Real Estate and principal of New Vision Lansing, “After more than a year of planning and bidding, we are anxious to move on to hammers and shovels. Municipal approvals in the next few weeks are the starting gun we need to hear.”
