The city of Lansing is home to the state capitol, the Lansing Lugnuts, and many businesses and new developments that are bringing life to the city.
In 2010 Kiplinger named Lansing one of the “10 Great Cities for Young Adults.” Residents are excited about how the city is faring and are eager to see what the future looks like for the city.
“Lansing is a great place to live,” said Terrance Grantham, a resident of Lansing and a current counselor at the Lansing Boys and Girls Club. “Being from Detroit, I have always been used to the big-city life, but Lansing has been a nice change of pace for me and my family.”
Grantham is a father of two and he and his wife recently got married in May.
“It’s actually an ideal place to raise a family because the city isn’t very big,” said Grantham. “I’ve been impressed at how the city has progressed since we moved here in 2013. I think it is a good place to raise my kids.”
Downtown Lansing is beginning to see new additions and developments that are making people consider moving closer to the capitol building.
“I’ve been seeing all of the new apartment buildings and real estate being built and it’s exciting to me,” said Kyle Barnes, who lives on Lansing’s south side.”
