Here's an article from the Cornell Sun regarding a potential new development in Collegetown. The developer has opened the design of the new structure to anyone affiliated with Cornell University. It should be interesting to see what kind of entrants they get. I know Cornell has a respectable school of architecture, so this could be a new direction for some develpoers.

Actually this has happened before. Thanks to Vis at Ithacating, here's an entry from his blog describing something similar over 30 years ago:

An update from Ithacating. Unfortunately it's not all good news. Item 4.B. could put a real damper on the Canopy Hotel project. I sometimes think Ithaca is cursed with nimbyism.

A closer look at the ambitious Chain Works project in the old Morse Chain/Emerson Factory complex (from the Ithacabuilds website...lots of pics):

http://ithacabuilds.com/2015/03/01/a...orks-district/

This is a huge project for a city the size of Ithaca.

The latest entry for the Ithacating blog is of a more positive nature overall:

https://brancra.wordpress.com/2015/0...ousing-market/

I hope the convention facility gets finalized asap, the downtown area needs a pick-me-up after the mess which is the Commons renovation.

Some unexpected news from the recent Planning & Development Board meeting. Looks like downtown may be getting another mid-rise building. Hope this actually happens, and it's location will enhance the Seneca Street corridor. Here's an article from the Ithaca Voice:

I'm not sure if I've included this before, but here's a fairly recently completed "pocket neighborhood" not too far from downtown:

An updtae ref: a project being proposed for a difficult location. This is from the Ithacating@Cornell Heights blog:

https://brancra.wordpress.com/2015/0...pencer-street/

Will have to wait and see what the city decides.

An update from the Ithacating blog. Gotta say I'm not crazy about the proposed library design for the Cornell Architecture school in Rand Hall (item #2).
