Family-owned developer eyes additional downtown real estate

The former Oliver Towers may soon be part of a mix of downtown real estate owned by the development team that renovated the Knapp's Centre.
The George F. Eyde Family LLC has expressed interest in purchasing the long-vacant apartments from the city of Lansing. While the company does not have a development plan for the towers, Eyde officials indicated the building may be transformed into a mixed used project with retail, offices or apartments.
According to excerpts from the article:
"… Eyde officials have said in early conversations they don’t plan to tear down the building, but rather gut the interior and refurbish the outside ... Oliver Towers has been empty since a fire damaged it in 2000. It most recently was the headquarters for the Lansing Housing Commission before the agency moved to Davenport University’s former campus at Kalamazoo and Cherry streets."
