LANSING — Bill Snethkamp’s Lansing Dodge Inc. plans a three-phase renovation and expansion of its property and facilities along South Pennsylvania Ave. in Lansing.

The dealership will renovate its existing facility, build a new Alfa Romeo and Fiat dealership and look to sell off a remaining property at 100 Ramada Drive for a hotel development or other commercial use, according to a statement released by economic development group Lansing Economic Area Partnership (LEAP).

The development includes $4.8 million in private investment.

“This project will spur quality economic development activity in South Lansing, an area in need of support from private sector developers,” LEAP President and CEO Bob Trezise said in a statement, noting the organization is developing a strategy to drive activity on Lansing’s southwest side.

The renovation of the existing dealership is expected to be completed by the end of the year. The redevelopment was approved for 20-year brownfield incentives last week and still requires approval by the Lansing City Council. The entire redevelopment is expected to be complete in 2017.

Mark Snethkamp, the owner of the dealership group, praised city officials and LEAP for their help in the project.

The Lansing expansion marks the third Alfa Romeo store to locate in West Michigan. A Zeigler Automotive store in Grandville and a Fox Motor Group LLC store in Traverse City both sell the Fiat Chrysler Automobiles-owned brand.
