EAST LANSING — For one of our DTN Family, July 24th 2015 is forever etched in memory because it was the day her two daughters were in a car accident in Lansing. One of her daughters would become Sparrow's Miracle Child.
As a sponsor, DTN Management donated $2,500 to Sparrow's 28th Annual Children's Miracle Network Telethon. It's never too late to change the life of a local child, please see the website below for details on how you can donate.
EAST LANSING — When DTN Management was named Business of the Year at the 2016 Greater Lansing Entrepreneurial Awards, Co-Founder Tom Kuschinski was more than pleased to receive the award.
“It’s very exciting to be honored in that way,” said Kuschinski. “We have very strong ties to the Lansing area, because by far, everything we’ve done has been in the Lansing area up until recently… so it was really nice to get the recognition.”
GRAND RAPIDS — With several new buildings going up in the downtown and older structures being brought back to life, the developers and architects working on the projects are cognizant that what they are doing will change the skyline of Grand Rapids for years to come..
The mixture of new modern buildings and existing historic buildings is important to how a community views its downtown, said John Wheeler, director of development for Orion Construction and president of Orion Real Estate Solutions, which is developing several new buildings downtown including the 11-story Arena Place, eight-story Venue Tower and the proposed Warner Tower.
GRAND RAPIDS — With more than $100 million in downtown development in progress, Orion Construction and DTN Management Co. are a match made in heaven.
Following the construction of an apartment complex at East Lansing’s Eastwood Towne Center, it became obvious the values and goals of the two companies aligned, as did their individual expertise.
As Lansing-based DTN decided to hone in on the downtown Grand Rapids market, building on its more than 1 million square feet of space in the Greater Grand Rapids area, co-owner Ronald Uppal said Orion's expertise in development and construction meshed perfectly with DTN's asset management and management specialties.
“As we started working, it’s a shared vision of what we could bring to this town,” Uppal said. "We believe in — when we look at what's going on in the urban core, the Medical Mile, how it's transformed itself — that we wanted to be downtown."
EAST LANSING — The final phase of the West Village project — a 39-unit apartment building overlooking Valley Court Park with retail space on the ground floor — will be ready for residents by next fall.
"This project will add 6,500 feet of pedestrian-oriented retail and new housing options to our downtown. It's a win for our whole community,” East Lansing Mayor Nathan Triplett said at a groundbreaking ceremony this morning.
"It demonstrates clearly that when the private sector, MEDC and local government collaborate, we can avoid sprawl and promote smart in-fill development in the city's core."
The 300 Grand building at 300 W. Grand River is projected to cost $9.5 million and has been three years in the making, said Colin Cronin, vice-president of Lansing Township-based DTN Management.
EAST LANSING — Apartment giant DTN Management Co. on Tuesday presented to the East Lansing City Council a preliminary version of its site plans for the city's Park District redevelopment.
The Lansing Township-based rental property magnate plans for 490 apartments (between 900 and 1,000 beds), a 120-room hotel, 50,000 square feet of retail space, a new parking garage and about 900 parking spaces. The total size of the project amounts to 1 million square feet, DTN President Tom Kuschinski told the council.
An exclusively residential building sits at the corner of Evergreen and Albert avenues. It sits east of Valley Court Park, with space planned for a future farmer's market on the park's eastern edge, according to Kuschinski. A majority of the new Park District's retail space will be focused near the corner of Abbot Road and Albert Avenue.
LANSING TOWNSHIP — After some delays, construction of regional rental property giant DTN Management Co.'s The Vista at Eastwood Towne Center is under way.
DTN and Lansing Township officials gathered Wednesday at the site of The Heights development for a ceremonially groundbreaking on the 124-unit upscale apartment community. The Vista will boast 35,000 square feet of commercial space and 6,000 square feet of residential amenities.
Other features will include a three-seasons lounge area with grilling space, a spa pool and Jacuzzi, Wi-Fi in all common areas and meticulous landscaping. The Vista is named for the views it offers of the Michigan State Capitol, Spartan Stadium and other
With the East Lansing Park District, our community has the rare opportunity to completely reimagine a key gateway to the city and Michigan State University. The area encompassed by the Park District includes several buildings that have stood empty or underutilized for nearly a decade, creating an eyesore that sadly greets our city’s visitors.
As the chosen developer for the Park District, DTN has the privilege of leading this project, but we won’t be able to do it alone. We need the help and support of the East Lansing community, Michigan State University, and business professionals across the region to make this project successful.
DTN is collecting ideas and feedback for the Park District through the "Park District website ELParkDistrict.com and at three public meetings. These meetings will help us determine what community needs this development should meet, what innovative and unique elements we can incorporate into this space, and the types of design features the community would like to have included in the buildings.
