Another neighborhood is expressing concerns about more students replacing permanent residents, this time South Hill (near Ithaca College). From the Ithaca Times:

Can't say I'm a big fan of this project, but I guess Cornell has the money (from the Ithaca Voice):

A new housing complex in suburban Lansing (which has been on hold for a couple of years) looks to be getting ready to hopefully move forward. It's certain the county needs this and many more housing projects right now. From the Ithaca Voice:

Well this is quite a surprise, huge project being considered for downtown Ithaca. Article from the Ithaca Voice:

https://ithacavoice.com/2017/09/mass...street-garage/

Here's a pic of the property highlighted in red:



It's a long stretch of Green Street.





This one could be a game changer for the city as far as conventions go.

That's my take too.


Here's a project update from the Ithacating blog covering several projects in suburban Lansing and the City of Ithaca.

Here are a couple of articles on the initial presentation of the proposal mentioned in post #332 above:

From the Ithaca Voice:
https://ithacavoice.com/2017/09/prop...dable-housing/


From the Ithaca Times:
http://www.ithaca.com/news/ithaca/fi...da93124cb.html


There's a lot of work to do and negotiations with the city, but it would be a big improvement over the crumbling parking garage in a prime downtown location. And getting more tax revenue and affordable housing is a big plus too.

Heckova big update from the Ithacating blog tonight:

https://ithacating.com/2017/09/16/ne.../#comment-9833

Just when I thought things may start slowing down, they may get even bigger.

Looks like the Ithaca area"s largest mall is in trouble. Not surprising since many brick & mortar operations are feeling the squeeze of online retail. The mall is located in the suburb of Lansing, and is seeking zoning help to stay afloat (from the Ithaca Voice):
