Over the past decade, Lansing has had a staggering trend in growth. Millions of dollars in new investments have brought life and young talent to the Stadium District, creating a community with a strong pursuit of “Live, Work, Play.” The Stadium District is home to endless experience opportunities for all ages, with multiple venues for events, conventions, and entertainment such as Cooley Law School Stadium, home to the Lansing Lugnuts, Class A Minor League Baseball Team, and the Lansing Center - together attracting over 200,000 visitors annually.
BOOMING more than ever, is development. With multiple developments taking place in 2020 including a pivotal turn of the District with the opening BLOCK600. This has attracted other businesses statewide and nationwide to plant roots in the Stadium District.
The Stadium District also offers multiple restaurants, distilleries, and a brewery. Lansing Brewing Company serves as the pulse in the heart of the District with top of the line food, unique beer options and a Stockhouse (event space) with a full agenda of events happening!
From the running, walking, biking, and more along 20 miles of the Lansing Rivertrail to kayaking or cruising the river on the Grand Princess – this is what allows living and visiting downtown to become an impactful experience and community. The businesses, organizations, and people of Lansing have taken advantage of this with the addition of Rotary Park - a park including a new sandy beach area, lighted forest, boat dock, sculpture area and multiple outdoor concert venues such as the HUB (happening under the bridge). The addition of outdoor art exhibits being added along the trail through Art Path (an event hosted by the Arts Council of Greater Lansing) and new murals popping up on walls of buildings all throughout the District organized by Below the Stacks, brings life to downtown Lansing attracting tens of thousands to the area. Group that with beerfest in the ballpark, Old Town and Reo Town within scootering distance, multiple outdoor patios, PEOPLE from other big cities and around Lansing who now live in the Stadium District, and of course, you have – a community with an experience.
