EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) - The developer of an apartment building in East Lansing plans to build it around an oak tree that could be 265 years old.

The Lansing State Journal (https://on.lsj.com/1RtEniR ) reports that developer Joe Goodsir had planned to remove the tree, but the plan changed after objections from East Lansing planning commissioners. It will be part of a courtyard.

The city council is expected to discuss the six-story development in April. There would be roughly 70 apartments at Grand River and Spartan avenues near Michigan State University.

The project would replace a gas station, an ice cream shop and a fraternity house.
