Tompkins County - The City of Ithaca Planning and Board, as lead agency, has determined that the Downtown Development Mixed Use Project may have a significant environmental impact and that a draft Environmental Impact Statement must be prepared.

The current plan proposed for the corner of East Seneca and Tioga Street is a combined hotel and office building with a conference center and approximately 6,500± SF of ground floor retail. On East Green Street the applicant proposes to demolish the existing city owned Green Street Parking Garage and replace it with a new, larger parking structure containing an inter-modal transportation center on the ground floor of the building. (The City of Ithaca has air rights only for the Green Street Garage and does not own the site that is proposed for the transportation center. The City is currently investigating options to obtain ownership of this property). The current plan proposes one additional parking structure on the existing City owned surface parking lot south of the Tompkins County Library, with ground floor retail and creek-side housing. On the city owned surface parking lot east of the Library, ground floor retail and creek-side housing are proposed. These structures are proposed to have retail on the ground floor, parking on the upper floors, and housing units located adjacent to the garages along the creek.
