LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Plans are moving forward on a $242 million project to transform the former Red Cedar Golf Course in mid-Michigan into a mixed-use development.

The Lansing City Council on Monday unanimously approved a purchase and development agreement for the property, which borders East Lansing.

The Lansing State Journal reports the project would include at least 200 apartments, more than 1,200 beds of student housing as well as an assisted living and memory-care facility. Plans also call for two hotels, a public park, restaurants, retail space and a public amphitheater.

The agreement calls for Lansing to sell the property for $2.2 million. Construction on the site could start as early as spring 2019. The city first approved a development and purchase agreement with developers Joel Ferguson and Frank Kass in late 2014.
