Gillespie Group was originally founded in 1994 as Gillespie Development, and has since built a portfolio boasting an excess of 2,000 residential rental units in addition to over 810,000 square feet of commercial/retail space.

Infusing energy through creative real estate solutions, we have created innovative communities in the Michigan market for over 25 years. We continually reinvent our methods while keeping experience based living options as our focus to better meet the needs of our residents and commercial businesses.

With a strong focus over the past several years on the Stadium District in downtown Lansing, we respond to today’s pursuit of ‘live, work, play’ destinations by providing mixed-use developments that promote ‘smart growth’. Characteristics such as walkability, interconnectivity, efficiency and diversity of open space are quickly becoming the traits of our signature development style.


Gillespie Hands On

Gillespie Hands On is one of the many ways Gillespie Group invests in Michigan communities. Team members are given compensated hours to use towards a cause of their choice and are  are encouraged to volunteer for charities, schools, or nonprofits that support what Gillespie Group believes in - bringing positive change. Our program allows team members to make a difference by giving them time that might otherwise be allocated to other responsibilities. We feel that a positive work/life balance and investing in local nonprofits focused on creating a positive change benefits everyone involved and builds a happier, stronger team culture and community.
