The corner of East Saginaw and Hartel Road in
has been a busy place over the last year and a half. In that time, four buildings have been demolished, three new have been built in a nearby location and a third is now underway on the corner where the former buildings stood.
Among the demolished buildings were a Subway
restaurant and a Baryames Cleaners
, both of which have rebuilt in adjacent and across-the street properties, respectively. The big project now under construction will be a 13,650 square foot Walgreens Pharmacy
, which will take over the footprint of all the former buildings.
“It’s been great,” says Grand Ledge
Zoning Administrator Susan Stachowiak of the rash of development. “Subway is up and running, Baryames is up and running, and so is Carquest
to the east.”
While Stachowiak isn’t aware of the projected opening date of the new Walgreens, she says it will likely be relatively soon.
“They’re making great progress over there,” she says of the builders.
The Walgreens property is owned by Anchor Properties
, headquartered in Covington, KY.
