The syracuse arts, literacy and technology district of the near westside initiative
In early October of 2010, our first large-scale mixed use project was completed with the renovation of the Lincoln Building. The Lincoln Building is a complete renovation of the 100 year old, four-story Lincoln Supply Warehouse into 30,000 square feet of mixed-used commercial and residential space completed by Brininstool + Lynch architects with Rich and Gardner Builders.
Floors one and two contain first-class office space and floors three and four have been transformed into a 10 unit “live/work space” for artists and other tenants. The units range in size from 1,151 to 1,270 square feet and rent for about $1 a square foot per month, including utilities.
The Syracuse Center of Excellence provided much of the funding and expertise in the selection of the building systems, which include a geothermal field, solar panels, hot water on-demand, an innovative living wall screen over part of the building, rain water recycling capacity, and others. The Lincoln Building will apply for LEED certification by the USGBC and it will join the countless other great and green projects taking place all over the neighborhood.
