The company 224 Entertainment made the announcement on Tuesday that a new entertainment and live music venue space is coming to downtown Lansing. The space obsolete space is being transformed into Hall 224. Officials at Hall 224 said that the venue can accommodate concerts, weddings, corporate conferences, charity events, and trade shows.
Hall 224 in downtown Lansing will be able to party up to 225 people in a formal banquet seating and 400 people in a theater arrangement.
“Having the amenities to serve the needs of our residents and those who traditionally, for entertainment, have had to travel to, you know, whether it’s to Detroit, Grand Rapids, Ann Arbor, et cetera, will have a phenomenal entertainment venue right here in the Capitol city,” said Cathleen Edgerly, with Downtown Lansing, Inc.
Lansing Mayor Andy Schor said he is excited for the space to be used for downtown activities.
“This is great for downtown and for Lansing and our entire region. My administration and our Lansing economic development team worked hard with the owners to ensure this project will happen,” said Schor. “This venue will once again come alive with energy, music, art, and great events. Hall 224 fills a much-needed gap in live music and entertainment space in Lansing. The new space will also be the perfect complement to the City’s larger Ovation performance venue, planned for further south on Washington Ave. I am looking forward to Hall 224 opening and seeing some great bands, live music, and other great acts right here in downtown Lansing.”
The venue is currently in the reconstruction phase and is expected to be opened in the spring of 2023.
“It’s going to help create jobs all up and down the downtown district as more of our restaurant industries can bring in more staff to work additional hours,” said Edgerly. “Our retail scene continues to diversify and bring more businesses downtown. It’s going to significantly help our local economy.”
