Target, Panera and other new additions to East Lansing

August 27, 2019

As students return to campus, they might notice that East Lansing has a different look. With construction wrapping up on several projects, East Lansing has more to offer.

A new, small-format Target held its grand opening on July 21. The store offers the same products as most Targets, but in a smaller selection. Small-format stores are designed to fit in small neighborhoods and near colleges where a normal-sized Target could not fit, according to Target Corporate. 


East Lansing’s Target offers a variety of Spartan spirit wear, fresh produce, beer and wine, home items and health and beauty products. The new Target is located at 201 E. Grand River Ave.

Just down the road from Target, the Hub of East Lansing is welcoming students back to campus.


The Hub offers off-campus housing with several amenities, including a rooftop pool and lounge, gaming areas, study areas and a fitness center. 

As students make their way to classes and around MSU, they might notice a new bike lane and restaurant.

MSU’s new protected bike lane runs down southbound Bogue Street. The bike lane is a pilot project being used to determine if the new lane will improve pedestrian and bicyclists safety.


Panera Bread opened inside the Broad College of Business’ Minskoff Pavilion on Aug. 1. The restaurant has seating, free Wi-Fi and checkout kiosks at the on campus location.
