According to the Lansing State Journal, the old downtown Lansing YMCA building is finally coming down.

After years of planning and waiting, crews are now able to start demolishing the building.

In its place will be a $25 million project with 145 loft apartments and almost 7,000 square feet of commercial and retail space.

The project, dubbed Metro Place, has been in the works for years.  Y Site LLC bought the property in 2008.  Click on the above link for more information.
