Student Housing Reconstruction | Reconstruction |406 Stewart Avenue Ithaca, NY 14850 | 2016
The property is in the Collegetown historic district of Ithaca, next to the former Chapter House building. It was also damaged by the fire that destroyed the Chapter House building and has subsequently been demolished. The proposed design is a reconstruction of the existing building with apartments on first, second and third floor with a shared laundry area in the basement. The building is characterized by its bluestone base with horizontal lap siding and shakes on the upper stories. The reconstruction also includes a steel entry gate & partially glazed-in access stair for the third floor apartments. The project was also reviewed and approved by the ILPC (Ithaca Landmarks Preservation Commission Committee).
