The Village of Okemos was once a thriving town center before it became neglected as suburban office parks, enclosed shopping malls, and sprawling subdivisions came into fashion. Located near the intersection of Okemos Road and Grand River Avenue, this site provides for convenient access to employment centers, as well as shopping, dining, entertainment and cultural destinations. There are also an abundance of recreational opportunities ranging from golf courses and hiking/biking trails to boating and watersports on nearby Lake Lansing. Within recent years, residents and employers have been vocally encouraging Meridian Township officials to help facilitate a redevelopment of their historic downtown.
The Village of Okemos revival will consist of 205 apartment units, 43,695 sq ft of commercial, 17,332 sq ft of self storage, structured parking with 216 underground spaces, as well as environmental cleanup and significant public infrastructure improvements. We anticipate for construction to begin in earnest in Spring/Summer 2020.
