City of Lansing Building Growth Triples in 2019

Mayor Andy Schor today announced that there was more than $280 million dollars in construction and permit activity in 2019. This is a $200 million-dollar increase compared to 2018. Notable projects in 2019 included partial permitting for Red Cedar Development, McLaren’s new state of the art medical facility, the downtown grocery store with hotel and housing, Oliver Towers, the Y site and Waypoint, among others.  

“The City of Lansing is growing, and people are eager to invest here,” said Mayor Andy Schor. “We are excited for the results of the investments made in 2019, as they will create more jobs, retail, housing, business and other opportunities for residents and visitors. These developments will also create a more vibrant and walkable community, which will continue to help attract and retain talent in Lansing.” 

Lansing’s Building Safety Office (BSO) is responsible for enforcing the 2015 Michigan Building Code, which establishes the requirements to safeguard the public health, safety and general welfare when it comes to buildings and construction. 

As of December 3, 2019, BSO issued 7,682 permits required for building construction during the calendar year. This is a 478-permit increase compared to 2018.
