According to Pure Michigan and Downtown Lansing Inc. Michigan’s capital city welcomes 1.5 million visitors a year. Filled with a diverse array of galleries, retail stores and restaurants; many of Michigan’s most prominent law firms, lobbyists, and other professional offices. Downtown is also home to state and local government, three higher education facilities, a minor league baseball team, a convention center, a diverse collection of non-profit organizations, and a budding residential community.
Below is a cool event that Kim Laforet, REALTOR at Coldwell Banker Hubbell BriarWood and the Laforet Team are involved with through the Mid Michigan Business Rap that’s coming up on May 14, 2011.
On May 14, 2011, Step Up Greater Lansing is challenging Greater Lansing area residents to step up and show their pride in Greater Lansing on our community-wide day of service. You can adopt your own place, or volunteer to help at one of our community clean-up locations. For 18 years, volunteers have participated in the annual assets. Join in this year’s expanded event to adopt Greater Lansing, and help make our “place” even better! Kim and the Laforet Team have joined in with residents and business owners at the Stadium District to help make this year another success.
I asked Kim about the Condo project at the Stadium District and this was her response: “We are extreamley happy that we now have VA funding AND 5% down financing for Stadium District condos which is HUGE, as few condo projects have anything less than 20% down programs! On top of that, we are in the Neighborhood Enterprise Zone which gives an approx.. 60% break in property taxes to the owners of the condos for 12 years! HUGE savings!”
