Not a big development, but a project which could provide a bit of a boost to tourist traffic downtown (from the Ithaca Voice):

This was a fairly quick group of approvals for Ithaca (from the Ithaca Voice).

An area near downtown which has started to revive a bit got some welcome news from the state for one developer (from the Ithaca Voice):

Two of Ithaca's recent controversial proposals are giving it another try. Both have not been able to get through the approval process (many Nimbys at work). From the Ithaca Voice:

https://ithacavoice.com/2017/02/will...s-city-review/

https://ithacavoice.com/2017/02/magu...thwest-ithaca/


I'm keeping my fingers crossed they will be seriously considered.

An update on several projects in Ithaca. The one big project finally approved is the Maplewood proposal for Cornell graduate housing (872 beds). From the Ithacating @ Cornell Heights blog:

https://ithacating.com/2017/02/11/ne...tion-required/

Quite a bit of info on energy conservation in the last item.

Articles from the Ithaca Voice concerning the affordable housing crisis in Ithaca and the college student vs permanent resident squabble.

https://ithacavoice.com/2017/02/mayo...ll-dorms-help/

https://ithacavoice.com/2017/02/itha...ampus-housing/

https://ithacavoice.com/2017/02/corn...nts-almost-2k/

No easy solutions, and Ithaca isn't the only place facing this problem.

The city has been experiencing a development boom the last decade or so. What helps is the current city administration is leaning pro-development. I hope it can continue.


Along those lines here is an article from the Ithaca Times about the biggest landlord in the city (an perhaps the least liked):
