The former train station that once housed Clara’s restaurant is one step closer to redevelopment
It’s been sitting vacant since 2016 but the former Lansing train station that once housed Clara’s restaurant could soon have new life. The Gillespie Group bought the more than century-old building about five years ago and has been working on a plan to redevelop it since then.

“What the final use is, we don’t know but we’re talking to a whole bunch of retailers. We’re talking to some office and different restaurant users. Nothing is locked in stone yet,” said developer Pat Gillespie. In a proposed plan for the 5,900-square-foot property, developers say they have a letter of intent from Starbucks to lease about half of the space. https://www.fox47news.com/neighborhoods/downtown-old-town-reo-town/the-former-train-station-that-once-housed-claras-restaurant-is-one-step-closer-to-redevelopment
