The East Lansing City Council is looking at another student housing project soon after meeting with Core Spaces, a national student housing developer. The company is developing the Hub on the southeast corner of Grand River Avenue and Bogue Street with 347 apartments and more than 12,000 square feet of retail and parking space.
Core Spaces is now looking to take on another project nearby. The City Council has brought it up in previous meetings.
“I did hear the mayor talk about it at the university student commission meeting last week,” said Annette Irwin, Housing and University Relations administrator.
The first project is designed for students in many ways.
It will feature rooftop basketball, pool and grilling.
The new development will be centered around the “East Village” location by the Red Cedar River and is surrounded by Bogue, Grand River, and Hagadorn.
Records indicate the council met with Core Spaces a couple weeks ago, but Irwin was unable to comment further other than to say “The council has talked with some of the developers about what they are thinking about, but we do not have anything in the process at this point in time.”
