Updates on Hilton Canopy and Harold’s Square Projects in Ithaca.
Hilton Canopy – “According to a representative at the Rochester office of developer Baywood Hotels, the firm is planning for a late March or April start; they have a 30-day window narrowed down, but not an exact day. Baywood received a $19.5 million loan from ES&L Credit Union in Rochester to pay for the construction the 7-story, 131-room hotel, and they have already purchased the parking lot from the city. The intent is to have the hotel open in late spring 2018.”
Harold’s Square – “Demo permits will be filed after public comment. There’s been a fifth story added to the s
hort section of the building, and some of the units have been changed – interior changes. Still 108 housing units, 40 of those are micro-units. They’re anticipating the project will hopefully begin around March.”
