After nearly two years of delays due to COVID-19 and other factors, construction at Ithaca’s Library Place project site will finally resume.
Developer Travis Hyde Properties announced renewed construction at the 310-14 North Cayuga St. site on Thursday, March 10 via social media, according to Ithaca Voice.
Since construction activities were paused during the first COVID-19 wave in March 2020, plans to restart have been up in the air. Work on the site was set to resume on two separate occasions in the past two years, but both dates passed without recommencement. Travis Hyde Properties cited rising costs and missed timetables with contractors, among other factors, as reasons for halted construction.
The first tenants are currently expected to move into Library Place in the spring of 2023. There will be 66 senior housing units in the 86,700 square-foot complex. Other amenities include a restaurant, community room, garden, gym, pool, and underground parking.
