MICHIGAN PUBLIC SERVICE COMMISSION ANNOUNCES NEW HOME AT H INC. PROPERTY H Inc. is proud to announce that the Michigan Public Service Commission (MPSC) has recently signed a lease for 61,000-square-feet of office space at the Prudden Tech Center. The first automotive historic restoration project in the state of Michigan is now full thanks to the recent announcement of the Michigan Public Service Commission lease. This project is a bright spot for the community and an indicator of economic recovery. Because of its historical significance, it has laid the groundwork for like projects in our region as well as the overall economic impact for the greater Lansing area. After nearly two years of working at various locations after a flood rendered their previous office unusable, the Michigan Public Service Commission is pleased to have found a location that fits all of their employees. This new lease will provide a cost savings thanks to the fact that it is full service, smaller and more efficient. The new space will be designed to fit the current needs of the agency and their customers, and is located in the central business district of Lansing.
