The link is with the Tompkins County Area Development Facebook page. There's several pictures, the > is on the right of the photos. Pics are from tour of downtown's new tallest under construction.

After years of proposals and wrangling, a housing project on an Inlet Isle site is finally nearing completion. Though some locals complain that this is not affordable housing, I have a feeling the places will be rented quickly. From the Ithaca Voice:

The largest proposed project in Ithaca recently received it's site approval after 5 years. The Ithaca Times did an info story on the local developer behind this project as well as the new tallest downtown seen in post #561 above. As noted many times in this thread, a developer has to be persistent and willing to take on the insane approval process of the city. In the case of the Chain District, not only the city but the Town of Ithaca re involved which adds another layer to the process. Here's the Ithaca Times profile of the developer:

Here's a link to the project's info (which could probably use an update)

https://www.chainworksdistrict.com/


I hope this project gets done before I am done.

Finally, a student housing project (Ithaca College students) has been approved (from the Ithaca Times):

From the Ithaca Voice an article regarding housing growth in Tompkins County (though much more is needed):

Also from the Voice, a land purchase on the West End which I'm sure signals a desire to transform the West End/ Inlet Isle area into an exciting urban neighborhood:

Well I guess it's somewhat a victory, although for the life of me I don't understand what exactly the difference is between a 5 story building and a six story building, especially considering the lack of affordable housing in the city.

Two articles covering the recent Planning and Economic Development Committee meeting. Holding up the big Carpenter Park redevelopment.

First from the Ithaca Times:

Second is from the Ithaca Voice, much more in-depth:
