Took these photos in the past few days. The Seneca-side brick facade is taking shape, and there are many new windows in-place around the back. Can’t wait to see this a month from now, I think by then the building will be nearly complete on the exterior.
Brick facade installation has noticeably picked-up speed, and I saw a truck full of tub surrounds being unloaded today. I bet once both scaffolding platforms are laying bricks on the south face, it will go quite fast; maybe even finished or nearly done with bricks next week.
The black waterproof coating has almost made its way around the building now, and bricks are being laid on the eastern and southern walls. It will be nice once the exterior gets wrapped-up on this project. I think it will look good, and blend well with the brick Dewitt Building next door.
About half the brick facade looks complete. I haven’t seen any drywall going in, so they’re probably still finishing up plumbing, electrical and HVAC on the interior. There’s a new layer of material on the roof as well, looks like sheets of EPDM or some other membrane.
Breckenridge Place, an Ithaca Neighborhood Housing Services Project is well underway, located on the site of the former Women’s Community Building at Cayuga and Seneca St. The building is six stories high, targeting LEED certification, and will contain 50 residential units slated for various income levels.
