Space that housed six businesses in the 2000 block of Michigan Avenue in Lansing were taken down yesterday by the Gillespie Collective, making way for East Town Flats. A restaurant is planned for the new development, along with apartments and Strange Matter coffee. The Lansing State Journal has more details here on the new project.

The Lansing State Journal also has a nostalgic photo gallery of Emil's Restaurant here, as well as a historic look at the Lansing landmark.
