Lansing City Market, Lansing MI

Project:  Lansing City Market Parking, Landscaping and Pedestrian Accessibility Improvements

Client:  Lansing Entertainment & Public Facilities Authority

The Lansing City Market is one of the newest showpieces of Downtown Lansing. Unfortunately, the layout of the parking area has proved difficult for shoppers to access its facilities. The Lansing Entertainment & Public Facilities Authority (LEPFA) retained the services of Wolverine to investigate parking, landscaping and pedestrian access to the site to facilitate the shopper’s accessibility to the site.

Wolverine has developed several site recommendations and preliminary drawings for LEPFA that include pedestrian access to Parking Lots #31 and #37. Wolverine has also organized a public team of volunteers with vested interests in the Lansing River Trail to replant and maintain the existing landscaping for the City Market frontage on the Lansing River Trail.

Crystal Township Park

Project:  Crystal Township Park Improvements

Client:  Crystal Township

Crystal Township has tasked Wolverine to design dramatic upgrades to the existing Crystal Township Park on Crystal Lake. The park currently enjoys a commanding hilltop view of Crystal Lake but does not utilize the lake access to its fullest potential.

Wolverine has designed a park that is fully handicap accessible with several common areas and more than tripled the usable beachfront.  The upgrades also included replacing the existing pavilion with a much bigger structure and extending the township sanitary sewer to a new restroom facility to replace the existing vault toilets.  This project also included acquiring grant money from the State of Michigan Department of Natural Resources.

Ionia State Recreation Area Trail

Project:  Ionia State Recreation Area Trail

Client:  State of Michigan Dept. of Technology, Management, and Budget

The DTMB contracted Wolverine to design dramatic upgrades to the existing non-motorized pathway and river crossing within the Ionia State Recreation Area. Prior to our project, the Recreation area trails were little more than worn bare earth trails that were often muddy or waterlogged.  The harrowing Sessions Creek crossing consisted of  a number of large rocks strategically placed and made for a harrowing crossing.

Wolverine designed a trail that is fully handicap accessible with several scenic areas and a new pedestrian bridge crossing the creek.  Wolverine provided landscape design, survey, geotechnical, and construction inspection services.
