Drove past this grading work and finally stopped to take a look. This project by Ithaca Estates Realty, LLC will be putting up a drive-thru retail/office/residential center just past Ithaca College’s Circle Apartments complex, next to the company’s own student rental apartments on Danby Road, at the intersection of East King Rd. The site plans (working plans from March) show 121 proposed parking spaces including reserved spaces, nearly 9,000 square feet of office space, 4,000 square feet of restaurant space, and 9 residential units in the proposed building. The restaurant space appears to be for a Dunkin Donuts drive-thru, and a portion of the office space for a bank branch with two drive-thru lanes. I’m guessing that the residential units will be on the second floor.
