An infusion of loft apartments and upscale condos in downtown Lansing-- 450 new units over the last 4 years!-- has greatly diversified Lansing as a residential destination. With welcoming neighborhoods spanning out in every direction from the city's core, a consistent stream of people moving in from surrounding communities, and other local trends, the city's social value as a destination is being consistently enhanced.
Lansing's urban appeal creates an energetic hub for educational, economic, entertainment and employment opportunities. The combination of these factors constantly improve Lansing's allure to a diverse market of young talent, including entrepreneurs, professionals and future business leaders. City-wide resurgence of economic energy and enthusiasm has also led to an increase in community participation and satisfaction for long-time residents.
Residents of Lansing enjoy a variety of world-class recreation, community activities and entertainment. Community assets such as the downtown riverfront and River Trail, the State Legislature, a junior professional baseball stadium, live professional theaters, a family science museum, arts and cultural opportunities, and the growing entertainment scene are giving residents, new and old, the chance-- and motivation!-- to discover, or rediscover, Lansing as their home.
