Tompkins County - The City of Ithaca Planning and Development Board, as lead agency, has accepted a Final Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed Downtown Development Mixed Use Project. The action pending is the Site Plan Approval for the Downtown Development Mixed Use Project located in the City of Ithaca. The conceptual site plan is a combined project that includes a 110 room hotel, 100,000 square feet of office space (including 55,000 square feet of office space for Cornell University, 8,000 square feet of retail space and 37,000 square feet of speculative office space), a 250 seat conference center, approximately 1,780 vehicular parking spaces within two parking garages, from 14,600 to 68,600 square feet of retail and between 110 and 202 units of housing. An Intermodal Transportation Center (ITC) was also considered as a potential alternative use for the ground floor of one of the garages. 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. An inter-modal transportation center has been considered for 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.
