New development just west of Western Michigan University expanding


KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- The Kalamazoo City Commission has agreed to close off the end of Lafayette Street at W. Michigan to make room for parking for a five story mixed-use office and retail development being built at the corner.

Traffic in and out of the Student housing area just West of WMU will be diverted over to Euclid and out a new road that will connect with Howard Street.

Landlords and students expressed their opposition, but it was adopted anyway.

They had considered a parking ramp but decided it would not be cost effective.
