Construction on the hotels began two months ago, but on Dec. 9, elected officials and others joined Continental/ Ferguson, LLC and Concord Hospitality for the official ground-breaking ceremony on the vertical construction phase of the dual-branded hotels Hyatt House by Hyatt and AC Hotel by Marriott in Lansing, Michigan.
This is a part of the $256 million mixed-use Red Cedar Development on Michigan Avenue.
The hotels will have about 300 guest rooms, complete with about 5,000 square feet of meeting and event space. The hotels will also be home to Toscana Restaurant and Bar, which is expected to be completed by August of 2022.
In addition to the Hyatt House and AC hotels, the Red Cedar Development features market-rate apartments, an assisted living facility, and a state-of-the-art student housing complex, which was completed in August of 2021, and is fully leased.
The development features restaurants, retail space, and commercial space. Along Michigan Avenue, the Red Cedar Development, which overlooks the Red Cedar River, will be located adjacent to a newly constructed 20-acre public park.
Located along the vital Michigan Avenue corridor, the Red Cedar Development will create new opportunities for living, working, and playing, and will ultimately activate the corridor that connects Lansing to East Lansing.
Student housing is fully leased, and the assisted senior facility is on track to be completed by July of 2022. The 181 market rate units will be complete and open by February of 2022. The hotels are expected to be completed by August 2023, but retail and commercial space is currently leasing and will be completed by spring of 2022.
