Urban Core’s Press Bay Alley Project has begun, with plans to convert these old Ithaca Journal press bays into micro-retail/arcade spaces. The block knock-out alongside the scaffolding on the Green Street side will feature a top-to-bottom window, and the garage doors will be replaced with steel-framed glass. In the meantime since plans were being drawn, the spaces have hosted the Arcades Project and several other events. It will be interesting to see what retail businesses decide to sprout here, and if other future projects in the area incorporate micro-retailing into their developments.
