BATTLE CREEK — A long vacant building in downtown Battle Creek will soon show new signs of life.

Anson Building LLC plans to invest $3 million to redevelop the former Anson Hotel at 121 W. Michigan Ave. into a fresh food market and deli, with 8 apartments.

Sprout BC, a locally produced food delivery and pickup service located in Springfield, will operate the market and deli on the building’s first floor. The enterprise will not only give city residents another option for fresh produce and ready-to-eat foods, but also a stake in its ownership as a cooperative.

Four, two-bedroom apartments are planned for the building’s second floor, with three two-bedroom apartments and one one-bedroom apartment on the third floor, according to documents submitted by the developer.
