Five updates of construction projects going on in and around Ithaca (from the Ithacating in Cornell Heights blog):

Considering how difficult it is to get any project through the approval process, these (and other ongoing construction) represent quite a bit of activity.

Of course there is bound to be opposition to projects in Ithaca, here's a couple from the Ithaca Voice:

And even one in Cayuga Heights (an upscale suburb):

And so the process begins. Let's hope this one goes better than the last proposal. More pics in post #201 above. Article from the Ithaca Voice:

Seems the biggest downtown project is still a possible go (from the Ithaca Voice):

Again, it's a wait and see.

Not all the new Collegetown projects are complete, but three will be done soon. Here's an article about the situation from the Ithaca Voice:

News report about consolidating some city offices into a new facility downtown:

I guess we'll see what the study finds out.

The first time I had a beer in a bar was at the Chapter House. I was a 17 year old senior in high school (the drinking age then was 18). The place was 2 blocks from my house.

The building housing the Chapter House and an adjacent apartment building burned down last year:



Looks like there's a chance for a rebuild:

I'm hopeful this time the plan actually happens.

I hope the powers that be in Ithaca (and the Nimby citizens) realize the city has opportunities to increase the tax base and, with some added effort, start to put a dent in the affordable housing problem. The results of a recent study show the need for many more housing units in downtown than are currently planned. From the Ithaca Voice:

And the process continues for the proposed Chain Works project (see post # 68), from the Ithaca Voice:

http://ithacavoice.com/2016/09/50009/

It's always something in Ithaca for developers to contend with.

The final piece of the Ithaca Commons renovation is in progress. I don't have a rendering of the final product, but I will post a pic of it when it's finished. (from the Ithaca Voice):
