Take me out to the ballgame…from the balcony

Greater Lansing can now claim to be a national and global trendsetter in innovative urban design, as construction has begun on The Outfield – a new mixed use development, including 80 residential units, overlooking the outfield of Lugnut’s Stadium (officially Cooley Law School Stadium) in downtown Lansing. If you are a baseball geek, or just love the urban experience, this place is for you, as views of the stadium and downtown should be outstanding. Add in the proximity to the City Market, the Michigan Avenue Entertainment District, and the Lansing River Trail, you’ve got a bases-loaded, grand-slam, home run, game-winning combination.

Kudos to the Gillespie Group and the City of Lansing on an exciting, visionary, and extraordinary project. My only question is, “will the windows be shatterproof?” 🙂
