The Waterfront Sues To Stay Open
As the future of the Lansing City Market continues to be in question the popular downtown destination, the Waterfront Bar and Grill has moved ahead with a lawsuit to prevent the termination of their lease with the Market.
According to the Lansing State Journal, the Waterfront's owners, Simmons Properties, LLC, is asking for a temporary restraining order that will keep LEPFA, the Lansing Entertainment and Public Facilities Authority who manages area venues for the city of Lansing from evicting the bar and grill or from hindering them from conducting business until a decision is made regarding the lawsuit.
In May, LEPFA said that it wouldn't be renewing the lease of the Waterfront, then followed up with a letter in late June stating that the business would have to leave the City Market by the end of July or be evicted.
The Waterfront's lawsuit states that around 25 employees will lose their jobs if the bar and grill closes.
