The groundbreaking celebration for the Liberty Hyde Bailey Center renovation project in East Lansing took place yesterday morning.
PM Environmental provided Brownfield and financial incentive assistance and is handling Industrial Hygiene services for the project that will adapt the historic 1922 elementary school to include 30 apartment units for area seniors, 9,000 square feet of low-traffic commercial/daycare space and Capital Area Housing Project (CAHP) office space. The existing gym will be renovated for use as a community space, which will include performance art programming.
Pete Bosanic, Co-Founder and President of PM Environmental, attended the event, which featured speakers including East Lansing Mayor Mark Meadows, State Representative Sam Singh, PK Housing owner Pete Potterpin and MSHDA Executive Director Kevin Elsenheimer, as well as a performance by Happendance, a local dance company.
“This is an exciting project and a thoughtful use of a classic building,” said Bosanic. “We are pleased to be part of making it happen,” said Bosanic.
