Lexington gives OK for redevelopment

At their regular meeting Tuesday night, Lexington Village council gave their approval for developers to proceed with the restoration project at the historic Cadillac House. A development company from Detroit has plans to create a new tavern on the first level with hotel rooms on the other two floors.

Council approved an application for a Community Development Block Grant to be sent to the Michigan Economic Development Corporation for consideration. The Cadillac House was originally built in 1860 with 30 hotel rooms. It ended operation as a hotel in the mid-1960s but remained as a restaurant until 2016.

The $2.5 million redevelopment project will include a full renovation with hopes of opening by the end of this year.
