A new building proposed for a prime downtown location. It's kind of a scaled back version of a previous proposal by a different developer which didn't make it through the approval process. Hopefully this one has a better chance. From the Ithaca Voice:

I'm not sure if this is good news or bad. It's related to a new tallest building for downtown, and the article (from the Ithaca Times) does mention some financing issues for the project; Harold's Square.

Update from the Ithacating blog, mostly positive news. I'm a bit surprised by the first item. I thought that was going away because of the opposition in some quarters:

Some articles from the Ithaca Voice.

McGuire Auto revises plans for the North side proposal, though I think it's still going to be a tough sale.

Habitat for Humanity proposal for the bottom of South Hill.

http://ithacavoice.com/2016/12/habit...uth-hill-site/


A proposal for Inlet Island had changed from an apartment building to townhouses.

http://ithacavoice.com/2016/12/townh...-inlet-island/


Finally, a new affordable housing proposal for the South Side.
