City of East Lansing Offers Commercial Land for Development in Northern Tier

26.83 Acres at Coleman Rd and West Rd, East Lansing

The City of East Lansing has partnered with NAI Mid-Michigan to offer 26.83 acres of commercial land in East Lansing’s Northern Tier.

The property is located at Coleman and West Roads along the southern border of Clinton and Ingham counties. This is the center of what is referred to as the “Northern Tier” – north of Lake Lansing Road – where the majority of East Lansing’s vacant land is located. Following years of planning and partnerships with surrounding jurisdictions, land in this area is now ready for gateway development.

Abbot, Coolidge, and West roads were reconstructed and improved from Lake Lansing Road to the city’s northern boundary between 2006 and 2014. Culminating in years of effort and consensus, working with Lansing Township and DeWitt Township, the Coleman Road extension is now complete. This east-west connection under US-127 will help ease rush hour traffic congestion at the Coolidge/Lake Lansing Road I-69 interchange, and provides the infrastructure, including sewer lines, needed to support significant future development.

“The city is eager to activate this property with development in alignment with our Master Plan. We look forward to working with prospective buyers and developers on this unique opportunity to expand upon the development in our Northern Tier.”

– Tom Fehrenbach, Director of East Lansing Department of Planning, Building & Development

The 26.83 acres the city is offering is immediately adjacent to the Coleman Road extension, providing a distinctive opportunity with improved access and direct visibility from US-127. The property is currently zoned for office uses and master planned for a broad range of future land uses to promote expansion of the city’s employment industry and employment clusters. Future land uses range from multi-story office buildings, research laboratories, medical facilities, senior living, assisted living, indoor recreation, shopping centers, as well as warehousing and manufacturing.

The city took ownership through tax foreclosure and with voter approval desires to sell the land, with multiple land divisions possible depending on use. NAI Mid-Michigan and the city are coordinating marketing efforts, which will soon be introduced. “The city is eager to activate this property with development in alignment with our Master Plan,” said Tom Fehrenbach, Director of the East Lansing Department of Planning, Building & Development. “We look forward to working with prospective buyers and developers on this unique opportunity to expand upon the development in our Northern Tier.”

NAI Mid-Michigan’s Jeff Shapiro, Senior Managing Associate Broker, and Dave Robinson, Corporate Services Director, are working directly with the city to facilitate the city’s desire to parcel off and sell the property. “We will be making every effort to identify end users for the property in multiple-acre packages,” said Shapiro, “and to target developers and end users that meet the city’s planned goals and employment growth objectives,” added Robinson.
