Two of the bigger projects under construction in the city right now (from the Ithacating in Cornell Heights blog). Plenty of pics too.

First is the final phase of the Collegetown Terrace apartment project (for more info click on the collegetown terrace tag at the bottom of the entry):

Next is the Tompkins Financial Headquarters building in downtown:

Here is a pic of the Collegetown Terrace project. All the buildings to the right of the main diagonal street. All new construction except the old hospital building with the smokestack on the right (btw, where yours truly was born )

Not only is the city of Ithaca looking at some zoning changes (see entry #268 above), but the Town of Ithaca (which surrounds the city) is also looking toward zoning changes (from the Ithaca Voice):

Some progress reports on more housing projects.

First a small project on the North Side (from the Ithacating blog):

https://ithacating.com/2017/04/21/10...-update-42017/


Next is a much bigger project on the North Side which has apartment and single family housing for middle and lower income folks (Ithacating again):

https://ithacating.com/2017/04/23/21...-update-42017/


Finally a large project on East Hill by Cornell for graduate and professional students. This will probably have a big traffic impact on the Belle Sherman neighborhood in the city and East Ithaca area of the Town of Ithaca (from the Ithaca Voice):

A weekly update from the Ithacating blog including some of the politics involved with development (see article in the previous post). He also takes some of the local politicians to task (particularly Lansing). Brought a smile to my face.

Though I'd seen previous articles about this Cornell proposal, I never really gave it much thought. Looks like they might be serious about it. A new neighborhood not far from the Cornell campus. (from the Ithaca Voice):
