The Red Cedar project is a mixed-use development that will connect the State Capitol to Michigan State University and adjacent communities along the Michigan Avenue corridor. Long viewed as an important yet under-realized corridor of possibility, the project will serve a powerful catalyst for new multi-generational housing, vibrant activity, wide-ranging economic impacts, and regional pride. What is currently viewed as fragmented with several blighted pockets of development, can evolve into an indispensable zone of activity that creates jobs, enhances the economy, and improves the community’s sense of place.
