The material / detail changes to City Centre don't look too impactful. It didn't say if those were related to VE or not.

I think many of the changes were prompted by requests from city agencies/departments. It is mostly cosmetic for the material changes, and not knowing the costs of the items involved I wouldn't want to say they're related to value engineering or simply aesthetic.

I do think the mechanical screen on the Lux project could be a cost saving issue, but that's just me.

Some possibilities for transportation services in the Ithaca area.

From the Ithaca Times, interesting article about Far East visitors to the area using the local airport:

Another Ithaca Times article detailing a joint effort by the local bus transit company (TCAT) working with a group of Cornell students:

http://www.ithaca.com/news/tompkins_...0f24a5b3c.html


The Ithaca Voice outlines a meeting to discuss improvements for one of the vehicular arteries in the city:

https://ithacavoice.com/2018/04/open...treet-project/


Finally, an opinion piece from the Cornell Sun promoting the return of passenger train service to Ithaca:

A couple of articles from the Ithaca Voice ref; affordable housing.

First in suburban Lansing:

https://ithacavoice.com/2018/05/5-1-...dable-housing/


Next near downtown Ithaca:

https://ithacavoice.com/2018/05/affo...ion-army-site/



Finally a quick shot from the construction cam covering City Centre project (there's a yellow construction crane in the background, but that's for Harold's Square project)

Thanks to the Ithacating blog, here are four construction updates for the current big downtown projects. (Many pics included)


First up is the Canopy Hotel by Hilton:

https://ithacating.com/2018/05/05/hi...update-4-2018/


The soon to be complete Tompkins Financial Corp. Headquarters building:

https://ithacating.com/2018/05/07/to...update-4-2018/


What will be downtown's new tallest, Harold's Square mixed use project:

https://ithacating.com/2018/05/10/ha...update-4-2018/


Finally the City Centre building:

https://ithacating.com/2018/05/12/ci...update-4-2018/


Hard to believe this much is going on downtown after so many years of stagnation in the late 20th century.

A couple of articles about housing proposals.

First from the Ithaca Voice, a brief article about a plan for Cornell University to add 2,000 beds in five buildings on the North Campus:

https://ithacavoice.com/2018/05/corn...bed-expansion/


Next is a possible 225 unit townhouse project in suburban Varna (from the Ithaca Times):

I have a feeling the possible Green Street Garage redevelopment project will probably be in for a long, rough road. So many people wanting input with a large variety of desires will more than likely make for a difficult time for any developer. Article from the Ithaca Times:

http://www.ithaca.com/news/critics-e...7c74dc24b.html




On the other hand, here's a completed housing project three blocks from the Commons which is made up of Condos, a rare type of housing in the city. It's a convenient location to downtown, but a tough lot.......steep hillside and an odd shape.
Another notice from the Ithaca Times about an open house for the remaining avalable units:

http://www.ithaca.com/news/ithaca/a-...78d6e47a3.html


And a link to the Ithaka Terraces project:

http://www.ithakaterraces.com/

A little summary of the city Planning Board meeting (from the Ithaca Times):

Normally I'm all for restoration of an older building, but I was so glad the landmark status for the Nines restaurant in Collegetown. (from the Ithaca Times)
Also some other stuff in the article.

http://www.ithaca.com/news/ithaca/my...38b41d426.html

Here's a pic (the building to the left of the fire station)
