Built in 1903, Lansing's historic train station is being restored and repurposed! Gillespie Group purchased this property in 2016 in efforts to revitalize the existing building to continue to bring life and energy for years to come.  637 E Michigan Ave was formerly a Clara's restaurant and now, as part of the Stadium District, is being renovated for two occupants to breathe that new life into the space. 

Starbucks signed a lease with Gillespie Group to bring one of its newest community stores to the historic train station. A community store incorporates the history of the area it is located in, invests in locate non profits, provides community meeting space, and focuses its hiring efforts on local residents. 

Starbucks will occupy half of the building with the other 4,045 square feet (including a train car connected to the building) referred to as "Suite B" remains available for a restaurant, retail, or office space user who desires to provide the community an experience. Gillespie group will add greenery to the exterior as well as a front patio overlooking Michigan for both the Starbucks side and a patio on the other side for Suite B. 

With ample parking, a great location, and visibility directly along Michigan Ave, the space is ideal for anyone looking to grow and expand their business. Interested in a tour or more information? Contact our Leasing & Business Development Manager, Megan Weber 517-333-4123.
