High-Profile Projects Take Shape Across The Empire State

New construction is popping up across New York, with notable projects that run the gamut from SolarCity’s $900-million, 23-acre RiverBend manufacturing facility in South Buffalo to the $8.5-billion GlobalFoundries computer chip plant in Malta, one of the largest construction projects in the country. A new sustainably designed university campus is being constructed in phases over the next 25 years on Roosevelt Island, and a $300-million LEED-certified River Run Casino is nearing completion in Schenectady. This is only a small taste of the many high-profile projects making an impact on skylines across the state.

“We have a lot going on, and it’s the first time in my career that I can remember traveling the state and not hearing any doom and gloom,” says Joe Hogan, vice president of building services with the Associated General Contractors of New York State. “The market has been good the last couple of years, and it’s nice to hear.”

Ciminelli Construction of Buffalo completed site, core, shell and all process infrastructure work on the massive SolarCity RiverBend project in September. The 1.2-million-sq-ft solar panel manufacturing facility is being constructed by nearly 400 workers. The company, led by renowned entrepreneur Elon Musk, promises to bring thousands of jobs to the area when the project is complete.

“We’re also seeing a lot of biomedical projects in Buffalo,” Hogan says. “With that will follow the mixed-use developments. One of the big trends nationwide that we’re also seeing here in New York is the general interest for millennials to leave the suburbs and move into urban areas. Even Upstate, developers are catching on to this. As the industry picks up, we will see more of that effort to move into those urban settings.”

Barr & Barr Construction is currently constructing the Bloomberg Center for the new Cornell Tech campus on Roosevelt Island in New York City’s East River, just west of Manhattan, where more than 2 million sq ft of new space will be located in a series of architecturally dynamic buildings. The Bloomberg Center will be Cornell Tech’s first academic building and also has the distinction of being one of the largest net-zero structures in the country. The 12-acre campus is being built in phases, with the first opening in 2017. With buildings designed according to LEED, net-zero and passive house principles, the campus promises to be one of the most environmentally friendly and energy-efficient campuses in the world.

The Norwood-LeChase joint venture is constructing the Rivers Casino and Resort in Schenectady for Rush Street Gaming. The $330-million LEEDcertified project includes a 50,000-sqft casino floor, restaurants, banquet facilities and spa, along with a six-story, 163-room hotel and parking. The project is expected to be complete in the first quarter of 2017.
