WLNS.com reports that Mayor Virg Bernero has announced the developer that will reconfigure Lansing City Hall into a luxury hotel.

Beitler Real Estate Services has won the contract. Beitler is the only one of the four finalists who had not contributed to Bernero's past poliical campaigns.

The plan calls for a new city hall to go in to a redeveloped building on Hillsdale Street that once housed the Lansing State Journal. Then, once city hall is moved, work would begin on the new hotel project.

But, there are some hefty costs and financial transactions. For the full scoop on the dollars and cents, visit this link to WLNS.com
