A mixed use ideas competition in Syracuse, New York.
As part of ongoing redevelopment of the Near West Side, led by Upstate, the design team was asked to solve a multiplicity of existing programs on a single block. Nojaim grocery store, the last grocery store in Syracuse that is primary used by pedestrians, required renovation and sustainable updates including a green roof and grey water retention system. A medical clinic, separated by a parking lot, required a 350% expansion. By reorganizing the program, and inserting community based components such as a greenhouses and outdoor market spaces, the project situates itself as a critical location in the redeveloping pedestrian and bike friendly city.
