BLOCK600 Comes to Life

Gillespie Group’s newest development, BLOCK600, officially opened its doors Oct. 8

Gillespie Group’s newest development, BLOCK600, has officially opened its doors after two years of hard work. The development includes loft apartments, the Capital City Market and the first hotel in downtown Lansing in more than 20 years.

Located at the southeast corner of East Michigan Avenue and South Larch Street, across from the newly renamed Jackson Field, BLOCK600 is bringing needed residential, grocery and accommodation amenities to the Stadium District of downtown Lansing. The Stadium District has seen quite a bit of growth over the last few years, which makes it a prime location for BLOCK600.

Residents began moving into the loft apartments portion of the development Oct. 9, and the long-anticipated Capital City Market on the first floor of the project will open its doors to the public Oct. 14. Construction on the third section of BLOCK600 — a 122-room Courtyard by Marriott hotel— is ongoing with an anticipated opening spring 2021.

BLOCK600 also comes complete with a larger-than-life fruits and vegetables mural by award-winning artist Brian Whitfield. The Capital City Market, a 37,000-square-foot urban grocer designed and driven by Meijer, will provide fresh food, value and convenience to local residents, alleviating the area’s reputation as a food desert.

The 40 loft apartments will meet the needs of the growing population seeking the urban lifestyle experience that the Stadium District has to offer. Providing studio, one and two-bedroom lofts directly connected to a grocery store and within walking distance of entertainment will give residents a home in the heart of downtown Lansing.
