LANSING, Mich. (WILX) - The Lansing House Commission (LHC) proposed a plan to transform a block of South Grand Avenue in hopes of helping the homeless population.

The proposal seeks to build a 63-apartment complex across the street from the CATA bus station and 2,200 square feet of retail space. Executive director Doug Fleming estimated this would cost $22.5 million.

Fleming said most apartments could be priced for low-income tenants, and some would be market rate.

The project would take over the east side of the 400 block of South Grand Avenue. A small strip mall anchored by Baryames Cleaners would remain at Kalamazoo and Grand.
