ENB - Region 7 Notices 12/14/2011

Negative Declaration

Tompkins County - The City of Ithaca Planning Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Cornell University's Computer and Information Sciences Building will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a proposal by the applicant to construct a four-story building with 103,000 gross square feet on a 56,000 square feet building site and the expansion of an existing motorcycle parking lot adjacent to Barton Hall to incorporate 3 accessible spaces. The building will have a steel structure and will have a curtain wall system with 50% clear glazing and 50% spandrel glass. A "skin" attached to this curtain wall will be constructed of perforated stainless steel panels, folded along the exterior to provide a 3 dimensional surface, allowing for both daylight penetration and sun shading. Site work will require demolition of the existing 51 car surface parking area, walkways, and vegetation, including 13 mature trees, and the construction of a drop-off and delivery area, with a mountable curb cut on Hoy Road, to the south of the building, sidewalks along Hoy and Campus Roads, a pull-off area on Campus Road, an entry plaza, landscaping, and other site improvements. The project is located at the southeast corner of Hoy and Campus Roads on the Cornell University Campus in the City of Ithaca, New York.
