Allen Place Project (2020), Lansing, MI


The development plans call for the rehabilitation of an existing two-story building that currently houses the Allen Neighborhood Center into a three-story mixed-use development in the City of Lansing. When completed, the Allen Place Project will include 21 affordable rental housing units, a health clinic, a food co-op specializing in locally grown/raised food products, an accelerator kitchen for food-based entrepreneurs, and increased access to healthy food options for area residents. Allen Neighborhood Center will continue to operate in the building, where it offers an incubator kitchen, community outreach, a health enrollment site, a farmer’s market, community events and fresh food delivery options.

Voices from the Community

The Allen Place Project exemplifies the kind of meaningful impact that happens when community members come together to be a force for positive change. The Cinnaire Solutions team is proud to work alongside our partners at the Allen Neighborhood Center to bring a community hub featuring an array of services to Lansing’s eastside. Once complete, the Allen Place Project will serve as a model for transformative community development.
