North Campus Residential Expansion (NCRE)

The Cornell University North Campus Residential Expansion (NCRE) project is located along portions of Cradit Farm Drive, Pleasant Grove Road, and Jessup Road in the Town of Ithaca, City of Ithaca and Village of Cayuga Heights.  The project involves adding approximately 2,000 beds (1,200 beds for first-year students and 800 for sophomores) in five new 3-5 story buildings, each containing lounges, social spaces and other residential hall amenities. The new buildings will be located on areas of campus that currently contain parking lots (CC Parking Lot and parking to the east of Appel Commons) and athletic fields (Appel South Fields), with one existing building (Sigma Alpha Mu) being removed. The project also includes a new dining facility and various outdoor amenities, including a plaza, amphitheater, open lawns, landscaped spaces, and walkways.

The NCRE applicant team has submitted an application that includes a Long Environmental Assessment Form (LEAF) and various environmental studies related to the project.  This information will be used to determine the environmental significance, once a lead agency is established to conduct the environmental review.  The LEAF, Appendix, and technical drawings are below. 

The City of Ithaca Planning Board declared their intent to be lead agency in the NCRE environmental review at their July 24, 2018 meeting. On August 7, 2018, the Town of Ithaca Planning Board will consider concurring with the City of Ithaca's intent to be the lead agency in the environmental review.  Stay tuned for updates to the process after the August 7th meeting.
