Cayuga County considers massive $52M renovation and expansion of office building

Cayuga County is contemplating a significant $52.3 million project to renovate and expand its Office Building, following recommendations from Colliers Engineering & Design. The proposal includes updating the current six-story building and adding a new three-story section to accommodate more county agencies. This project aims to address the building’s current state, which has suffered from wear and outdated facilities since its construction in 1966.


During a special county Legislature meeting, no vote was taken on the proposal, with Chairwoman Aileen McNabb-Coleman emphasizing the session’s purpose as informational. The proposed renovation and expansion come after a detailed 18-month study by Colliers, revealing issues like outdated mechanical systems, inefficient lighting, and security concerns due to the unclear separation of public spaces.

The plan, which also seeks to reunite displaced departments like the Office for the Aging within a single campus, now awaits a decision from the Cayuga County Legislature. This move toward modernization and efficiency highlights the county’s commitment to serving its community effectively, with the future steps including a thorough selection process for design and construction teams.
