A recent success story lies in the Cedar Green development. Dr. Eugene Choo purchased the former L&L Food Center and surrounding buildings in 2013. The project is located on 12 acres at 2380 North Cedar St.
Prior to this purchase, the shopping center was effectively empty for several years. Rehabilitation work on the site began almost immediately, and in the summer of 2014, Patient Central opened its doors — a facility consisting of an urgent care, primary care and cardiovascular practice, all under one roof. A laboratory and pharmacy are also located in the same facility. Equipped with the latest technology and highly experienced physicians, Patient Central brings together much needed medical services for the community, breathing life again into the once thriving shopping center. Future plans include additional office space and various retail outlets.
The former Sammy’s Lounge has been purchased, rehabilitated and reopened by Charlie Devine. Charlie’s Bar & Grill opened its doors at 1957 Cedar St. in January and marks Devine’s fourth area location. Menu offerings include soups and salads, fresh char-grilled burgers, pizza, a full bar and much more. A patio was added for outdoor dining enjoyment.
Roy and Tina Tong purchased vacant property at 2419 Cedar St. and will be building The Water Store, opening in the summer of 2015. A Jackson-based family business for 25 years, the Delhi Township location of The Water Store will sell and rent water coolers, purified bottled water and will offer a self-fill station for residential and commercial customers.
Delhi Township is located just south of Lansing and is easily accessible via US 127, surface streets and the Sycamore Trail connector to the Lansing River Trail.
