NEWS Release

Gillespie Group’s Midtown opens Friday

Move in to take place all weekend, increasing traffic in area

EAST LANSING, Mich. -- Midtown, Lansing’s new multi-cultural living community, opens its second and third floor this Friday to residents.

Midtown hosts 66 multi-family apartments ranging from studios to two bedrooms. Currently, over 90 percent of operational units are leased. Midtown also hosts a new PNC Bank branch that opened July 21, replacing the former PNC Bank across the street. Traffic to this branch has remained constant, and PNC expects increased use when the building officially opens.

Residents have been excited to move into the new building since the start of construction. A mix of undergraduate and graduate students as well as young professionals and families are moving into Midtown with residents coming from multiple countries.

The fourth floor is scheduled to be open in mid-September.

“We are happy to bring this innovative community to the area,” said Pat Gillespie, CEO of Gillespie Group. “The mix of young professionals, students and others who are moving into Midtown will increase traffic to local businesses and bring a new energy to Michigan Avenue.”

Gillespie Group has seven residential properties in the Lansing area, not including their new development, The Outfield, which is scheduled to begin construction in 2015. With each property, Gillespie Group prides itself on creating a unique community space where residents can get to know each other and become more than neighbors.

Midtown is following that same path. To welcome all the residents to the area, Gillespie Group is partnering with PNC Bank to host a tailgate for residents kicking off the 2014 MSU Football season Aug. 29. Midtown residents also have taken it upon themselves to strengthen this community. On Facebook, Midtown has created a private group for residents where they have been talking to each other, planning events and more. Before even moving in, residents have already planned potlucks to get to know each other.

“Since I found myself a single parent in 2009, I have lived in Gillespie Group properties. I never expected to be so well cared for,” said Heather Trentadue, Midtown’s first resident who signed a lease in February.  “They not only take excellent care of the properties where I've lived but also of my family. Gillespie truly is a family, and I would never rent from anyone else!”
