A renowned example of the Art Moderne architectural era, Knapps Centre’s sleek, elegant structure has again become one of the most recognizable landmarks in Lansing. Employing innovative design, our team restored the distinctive blue and beige metal façade with a new, energy-efficient rain screen replicating the appearance of the original.
Retaining its historic integrity, the repurposed interior created a mixed-use building that is once again a source of vitality in Lansing’s downtown. First floor retail spaces provide activity at the street level and offices at the middle floors open to a new, light filled atrium. Apartments at the top floor take advantage of the building’s top floor set back with balconies that overlook the downtown.
