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 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 by the City of Ithaca Planning & Development Board (the lead agency in the environmental review).  The LEAF, Appendix, and technical drawings are below. 

Since the submission, the NCRE applicant team has made identical presentations on transportation, energy and building design to each municipal board involved in the project review and approval (City & Town of Ithaca, Village of Cayuga Heights).  Stay tuned for updates to the process.
