Coffee with a Developer

On Friday, April 27, our very own Brent Forsberg met with area residents during the latest installment of Coffee with a Developer. The community was invited to REO Town’s Blue Owl Coffee to engage in discussions about developmental practices, the company’s plans for the area and to question the developer about their concerns for future developments. Forsberg is always looking for ways to provide education to and engage with the people who matter most – their neighbors.

The tournament, which ranks cities with the worst parking infrastructures through a voted bracket, shines a light on one of our city’s biggest obstacles. T.A.

Tiny Homes have a Big Impact on Housing Markets

Given their small square footage, it’s almost ironic just how large of a shift tiny houses are bringing to real estate markets. In an effort to build reliable, affordable, sustainable housing following Hurricane Katrina in 2005, Katrina cottages began popping up. Cities like Portland, Ore. and Oakland, Calif. also embraced the big opportunity in small homes.

In the Greater Lansing area, T.A. Forsberg Inc. has been a vital component to implement the housing trend within the local market. With a rich history dating back three generations, Terry Forsberg was one of the pioneers of highway infrastructure. In his early days, Forsberg poured concrete, built roads and municipal sewer and water systems. Today, his grandson Brent Forsberg continues the tradition and passion for community-centric development. The company’s philosophy is to build environments around how people live in communities.
