Onondaga County - The State University of New York (SUNY) Upstate Medical University, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Redevelopment of Kennedy Square will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the demolition of abandoned residential buildings and the redevelopment of the Kennedy Square site. The southern/western sector of the site will house the new Central New York (CNY) Biotechnology Research Center and a 300 vehicle surface parking lot. On the northern and eastern sector of the site, a mixed use development will be constructed over several years. The mixed use development may include residential, retail, technology and Research & Development (R&D) space, commercial space and green space as well as parking. The mixed use development will be complimentary to an urban setting.

The development may also include the extension of Irving Avenue to the north from East Fayette Street to East Water Street and the extension of East Washington Street from Forman Avenue to Crouse Avenue or University Avenue. These extensions would reconstitute streets that were abandoned when Kennedy Square was constructed in the early 1970s to create a super block.

All development on this site is anticipated to promote sustainable design practices by meeting or exceeding the criteria of the US Green Building Council LEED silver rating.
The project is located at 820 and 1000 East Water Street in the City of Syracuse, New York.
