Proposed 16-Acre Project for East Hill
Information from the Ithaca Journal
Last night John Novarr presented a massive 16-acre project at the city Planning and Development Board meeting. The Collegetown Terrace Apartment project would remove almost all of the buildings in the area bounded by Valentine Place, East State Street, Quarry Street, and Six Mile Creek.
The historic Quarry Arms, Casa Roma, and Boiler Works Apartment buildings would remain on the site and 1,100 new rental beds would be added to the area. When the project is completed there would be a total of 1,250 beds for rent and 820 parking spaces.
The recent construction moratorium allowed Novarr to really think through and plan the project.
The project would meet the four-story height limit required by zoning and the project would meet or exceed existing parking requirements. The project will come before the Planning Board once again in May.
