A development and construction company founded more than a decade ago in Lansing is upping its commitment to the area by adding a new staff member focused on leading development services.
Marilyn Crowley joined Kincaid Henry
in mid-August. She holds a bachelor's in community relations from Michigan State University, is a certified economic development finance professional, and worked at the Michigan Economic Development Corporation. Company co-owner Ryan Henry says that Crowley will lead project teams in strategizing financial packaging; facilitating city, county, state and federal real estate development and redevelopment incentives; producing real estate standard documents; and engaging with financial institutions.
"One of our main focused as a service provider is to lead our clients," says Henry. "Marilyn will take that to another level, particularly through the real estate development process."
Kincaid Henry was founded 11 years ago in Lansing, with an eye toward fostering projects that contribute to the development and redevelopment of Greater Lansing and Lansing's urban core.
The company's commitment is reflected through a spate of recent projects that include Doggy Daycare and Spa in Okemos; The Element 903 in East Lansing; Ash Street Redevelopment in Mason; Lansing locations like The Beer Grotto, CO-Space, Michigan Historic Preservation Network, and The Marshall Street Armory; as well as projects in communities like Owosso, Jackson and Adrian.
Henry says the company's commitment to Lansing is reflected itself in the company's headquarters: an office space they renovated on the edge of Old Town. Kincaid-Henry co-occupies the building with NEO Center—a shared working space for start-up companies, entrepreneurs and the self-employed.
"We made the conscious decision to place our company in the urban core and to help create a space for business to grow," says Henry. "The building we own and operate from represents our double-down commitment to Greater Lansing and to help strengthen a community's urban core that can attract and retain talent."
