Developer seeks city approval for 45-unit apartment building

Yet another development project in the City of Ithaca is moving forward.

Bloomfield/Schon & Partners of Cincinnatii is seeking site plan approval for a proposed 7-story, 45-unit apartment building next to the South Cayuga Street parking garage.

The project has been in the works for roughly 6 years but was put on hold after the developer had difficulty financing the project during the economic recession.

The developer also developed the Cayuga Place Apartments on Green Street.

Nels Bohn, director of community development for the Ithaca Urban Renewal Agency, says the developer’s recent modifications require additional approval from the city.

“The footprint was shrunk and the size of the project was increased in height, so it’s now a 45-unit housing project that’s seven stories tall, which is basically the same height as the Cayuga Parking Garage,” Bohn said.

Bohn said the building was designed with the intention of covering the full blank wall of the garage.

Ken Schon of Bloomfield/Schon says the building will include 1 and 2 bedroom apartments ranging from $1,100 to $2,200 in rent.

The project could receive final approval from city lawmakers as early as October.
