Martin is pleased to announce it will be marketing the sale of the Temple Building for Western Michigan University’s Thomas M. Cooley Law School for $3,400,000. The 109,826 SF vacant building is in a prime location less than a block south of the State Capital and is unique to downtown, where there are no other buildings of this size for sale. “We are excited about the opportunity to market the Temple Building and the significant impact on Lansing’s Central Business District that will result with the occupancy of this facility,” said Van W. Martin, President of Martin Commercial Properties.

The former Masonic Temple Building was built in 1924 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Cooley Law School purchased the building in 1973 and did a complete renovation for university use. The landmark building is a fixture on Capitol Avenue with its Classical Revival style stone façade, massive columns, and lobby with matching columns ornately decorated featuring the original chandeliers. The building also features office space, lecture halls, and a large auditorium with a full balcony accented by period lighting and updated sound system where Cooley hosted their graduation ceremonies.
