GLOBAL IMPACT On University Hill, important changes are underway in our research facilities, our medical institutions, our universities, our business districts, and neighborhoods. And all of this will not just be locally significant but will have national and global impact.


Touchstone Projects


Crouse Pomeroy Emergency Services $38 million Crouse Health completed its $38 million new Pomeroy Emergency Services Department, which has tripled in size, providing state-of-the-art emergency care, with advanced CT technology.


Work is now beginning on phase II of the project, which will relocate Crouse Health Prompt Care into the former emergency room space.


Crouse Hospital affiliation with Northwell Health Crouse also entered into a new clinical partnership with Northwell Health, which will provide Crouse with new group purchasing discounts and collaboration on best practices.


Crouse Health, recently announced a clinical affiliation with three North-Country hospitals. This will strengthen healthcare in the North-Country by enhancing the availability of specialized clinical care.


Crouse Intensive Care Unit $9 million Crouse 2018 Capital Investment $20 million Crouse also completed an expansion of its intensive care unit in 2017, a $9 million project to accommodate it’s growing neuroscience program. Crouse also has over $20 million in capital investment slated for 2018 including two new imaging suites.


Crouse also won a $16.3 million grant to build an expanded center for its chemical dependency unit, answering the community need for additional space to address the opioid crisis. This will enable the unit to provide treatment, counseling and primary care for an additional 300 patients. Crouse Chemical Dependency Unit $16.3 million grant


Nappi Longevity Institute $200 million Upstate Medical University will begin construction in 2018 on the Nappi Longevity Institute to meet the needs of the community by coordinating health care and social supports, with a focus on the neurosciences, including Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. The facility will be located on the corner of Almond and Adams Street.


Upstate Cancer Center $22 million The Cancer Center’s 4 th and 5 th floors were recently completed to add capacity for the care of patients. Construction of a new $22 million laboratory is underway and will be complete in 2018.


Upstate Simulation Center $13 million A $13 million Simulation Center is being built at Upstate to train medical professionals from Upstate and the other hospitals. It will be complete in 2018.


Upstate Medical University Center for Global Health & Translational Science In terms of global impact, Upstate Medical University’s Center for Global Health and Translational Science is embarking on a partnership with ENSPICE, an international foundation that is addressing nutritional needs of children impacted by crises.


ENSPICE Children’s Foundation and Upstate Medical University are addressing this critical need.


SU Invest Syracuse $100 million Transformation is also driving Syracuse University. During 2017, Chancellor Syverud announced “Invest Syracuse” Advancing Academic Excellence and the Student Experience. The $100 million program will:


Redefine the student experience by strengthening academic support and career advising, and expanding experiential learning;


Advance discovery and innovation by recruiting exceptional faculty scholars, providing faculty with the support to deliver innovative teaching, while conducting groundbreaking research, and


Expand opportunity to students across the socioeconomic spectrum, including a campaign to raise $40 million for undergraduate scholarships.


This transformational program will assist in implementing the academic strategic plan, strengthen Syracuse University’s teaching and research functions, and attract new students to the university and the community.


SU Impact on CNY $1.1 Billion 15,000 Jobs A recent study indicated that Syracuse University’s annual impact on the CNY region is $1.1 billion, and supports more than 15,000 jobs in the region. This is a plan that benefits both the university and Central New York.


SU Campus Framework Syracuse University has also begun implementation of its Campus Framework Plan that will address the student experience, integrate accessibility and mobility, and improve the academic and research environments


The first project of the framework builds on Syracuse University’s historic commitment to our nation’s veterans, with the construction of the National Veterans Resource Complex (NVRC), a first-of-its-kind, multi-use facility dedicated to advancing academic research and programming to serve the social, economic, and wellness concerns of the nation’s veterans and families.


SU National Veterans Resource Complex $62.5 million The four story, $62.5 million project will be built at Crouse and Waverly Avenue and will offer space focused on comprehensive veterans’ services, class rooms, and a 750-seat auditorium.


Syracuse University was recognized by Military Times as the number 1 private university in the country for services to our nation’s veterans. We congratulate Chancellor Syverud and Vice Chancellor Mike Haynie for this national recognition.


As always, the focus of veterans’ services on University Hill is embodied in the Veteran Affairs Medical Center. In 2017 the VA began an expansion of its Spinal Cord Injury and Disorders Unit, doubling the number of beds dedicated to this program.


This will entail the hiring of 68 additional employees, bringing total employment at the VA to over 1,700 people.


In 2017 and 2018 the VA will complete capital improvement projects, including renovation of its inpatient m edicine u nits, upgrading its imaging services and expanding laboratory services and adding an outdoor living space to the long-term care unit.


Hutchings Phase III $19 million During 2017, Hutchings broke ground for the $19 million final phase of its campus redesign, which includes building renovation and the construction of walkways to connect multiple buildings on the campus. This project is scheduled for completion in September, 2018.


SUNY ESF Marshall Hall $35 million SUNY-ESF is also about to embark on a significant new project, the renovation of Marshall Hall. The project, now in design development, is estimated to cost $35 million, will begin in 2018 and will be complete by 2022.


SUNY ESF $35 million in additional capital projects ESF also plans $35 million in renovations to multiple buildings on their campus in 2018.


Research & Development Another transformational force is the growth of research, development and commercialization functions on University Hill.


COE $1.2 million research grant The Center of Excellence in Environmental and Energy Systems, Syracuse University and SRI International, have been awarded a $1.2 million research grant by the U.S. Department of Energy to develop a low-cost, high-accuracy sensor that accurately detects human presence inside buildings.


COE $500,000 US DOC grant The Center of Excellence, Syracuse University and CenterState CEO secured a $500,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Commerce to accelerate entrepreneurial activity and to develop devices that monitor and control energy and environmental quality in built environments.


The Central New York Biotechnology Accelerator hosted a pitch session by the six winners of the 2017 Medical Device and Innovation Challenge.


The MDIC program brought together leading innovators in medical device technology and supported them with equipment, facilities, mentors, and an opportunity to test their ideas.


Queens University, Kingston, ON The BAC has also been taking the lead in building a relationship with Queens University and an economic development partnership between Kingston and eastern Ontario known as the Kingston Syracuse Pathway.


It will focus on helping entrepreneurs from each community access customers and market opportunities in the other country, as well as developing bi-national medical and biotechnology research projects.


One of the University Hill Corporation’s goals is to maintain these entrepreneurial ventures in close proximity to the city center where they can benefit from services and contacts with the research centers.


Syracuse Center of Excellence CNY Biotech Accelerator The area north of East Genesee Street could emerge as a major R&D center. We are working with the City of Syracuse through its ReZone process to provide space for a technology-driven innovation district to emerge along the corridor.


Employment on the Hill All of this activity will continue to create new employment opportunities.


As of today there are 1,200 career opportunities open on the Hill. At the current average wage for higher education and health care institutions, an additional annual payroll of $60 million dollars could be generated if all the jobs were filled.


Diversifying the Hill INITIATIVE This year, an exciting new effort was launched by the collective efforts of the Chief Diversity Officers of the University Hill institutions called Diversifying the Hill. The mission of Diversifying the Hill is to provide community educational, networking and recruitment opportunities to increase workplace diversity


The University Hill Corporation will support this effort. The lessons learned from “Diversifying the Hill” can provide a model for the rest of the community.


A Residential Center Another major transition is underway in the two business districts: Crouse Marshall and East Genesee Street. Both have major residential construction projects underway, due to the investment of private developers constructing purpose-built student housing.


The Marshall 8 stories, 275 beds 20,000 sf commercial space $40.5 million The Marshall, a $40.5 million mixed-use complex is being built at 727 South Crouse Avenue.


Theory Syracuse 604 beds 244-car parking garage 7,000 sf commercial space $66 million Peak Campus is constructing Theory Syracuse, a 604-bed, $66 million project in the 900 block of East Genesee Street.


The 505 on Walnut 363 beds $46.4 million The 505 on Walnut is under construction in the 1200 block of East Genesee Street. It represents an investment of $46.4 million. All these projects are scheduled to be complete in August, 2018.


728 E. Genesee St. 191 units $60 million Not all the housing is aimed exclusively at the student market. A spring 2018 ground- breaking is planned for a 191-unit project at 728 East Genesee Street which will cost $60 million. The developer is going to renovate the former First Church of Christ Scientist for new commercial space.


Copper Beech Commons West 72 units $8.5 million The Woodbine Group has proposed to build an $8.5 million, 72-unit building in the 1000 block of East Genesee Street, including the preservation of a Ward Wellington Ward structure which will be transformed into retail space. This will be marketed to a mix of students and professionals.


Sylvester Building 42 units 13,000 sf commercial space $8.5 million On the 900 block of East Fayette Street, Chris Geiger is renovating the historic Sylvester Building, as well as constructing a new addition. This will represent an investment of $8.5 million.


Collectively, these projects will likely attract 1,500 new residents to the Hill. Crouse Marshall and East Genesee will be transitioning to more mixed-use districts.


This will create an opportunity for all of the businesses on the Hill to tap into new markets.


University Hill Corporation members are also engaged in new affordable housing developments.


SHA Mixed-Use Neighborhood 2,000 units 3,500 residents The Syracuse Housing Authority has developed a plan to build a new mixed-use neighborhood next to the University Hill area. SHA’s plan could increase the density of the neighborhood from its current 1,400 units to one that would have 2,000 units and 3,500 residents.


In addition, SHA will propose the development of a new commercial corridor along Adams Street that will serve University Hill as well as downtown and the new Southside neighborhood.


The Syracuse Housing Authority has begun the process of this transformation with the construction of Freedom Commons.


FREEDOM COMMONS Households 9 Supportive Housing Units (30% AMI) 45 Non-Supportive Housing Units (50% AMI) 5,300 Sq. Ft. Emergency Homeless Shelter - 3 Units (11 Beds Total) - Program Service Space Of the total 54 apartments, 9 will be permanent supportive housing units for formerly homeless individuals, while the remaining units will provide affordable housing for individuals and families


HVU Winston Gaskin Homes Renovation of 20 buildings 66 units $20.5 million Housing Visions is preparing a new application for Winston Gaskin Homes which will consist of the renovation of 20 buildings containing 66 units. The total investment will be $20.5 million


Housing Visions Employs 100 people Renovated 362 buildings Created 1,400 affordable homes 15 Cities Total Investment - $351 million Housing Visions employs 100 people, has built or renovated 362 buildings, and created 1,440 affordable homes in 15 cities that represent a total investment of $351 million. And most of those investment dollars are private capital, not public dollars.


Total Investment: $500 million Investments in University Hill from projects underway or to be launched in 2018 equals $500 million. Others to be initiated before 2020 will total $350 million


Access to the Hill The demand for transportation to and from University Hill will increase with the growth of our job generators, the growing research base, and the attraction of new residents and visitors.


NYS DOT is moving forward on the I-81 project. It is likely that within the year, the final decision on the preferred option will be made, and within two years construction will begin. University Hill Corporation members have expressed their expectations for what they want for I-81.


I-81 Requirements: Multiple access p oints East/West connections Alternate transportation options Sustainable solution Reasonable cost Minimize property seizures Minimize construction impact


SMTC has been engaged over the two years in the SMART 1 study, which is analyzing the potential for higher intensity transit services in Syracuse. One of the primary corridors they are studying is from Syracuse University to the Lakefront.


The recommendation is moving toward the development of a bus rapid transit corridor that will provide fast, efficient, and environmentally sound transit connections along these destinations . All this demonstrates that while we debate the future of I-81, the future of mobility is changing rapidly.


The adaptation of autonomous vehicles, all electric vehicles, and the car sharing economy are going to radically change how we will move around. Most of these changes will impact the vehicle markets within the decade. Mobility, environmental, health, and urban design work going on in our University Hill institutions could contribute to those changes.


This is another example of how work that goes on here contributes to system wide change. As a practical matter, it is imperative that whatever replacement is built for I-81, it is built for the future of mobility, not the way it is done today.


What we knew University Hill to be ten years ago is not what it is today or where it will be ten years hence.


As a community that relies on scientific methods, research and development , and the building of knowledge, we strive to anticipate change. As a community that recognizes demographic change and the need for new talent and diversity, we welcome all.


DOWNTOWN MOBILITY SCENARIOS University Hill seeks to be on the cutting edge in technology, medicine, the arts and education.


We are a community in constant transition and discovery.


University Hill - We don’t just embrace change, we create it!
