Steakhouse is not to be

LANSING — The property owner of Lansing Corners, Dave Olson, said a deal with renter Kathy McKenzie never materialized.

McKenzie announced in October her plans to open Lansing Corners, a restaurant four miles north of Austin on Highway 218. McKenzie planned to turn the historic diner — which has been empty since 2008 — into a steakhouse catering to high-end customers, she said in October.

Olson said the property is for sale or lease again.
