In September 2009, a ceremony was held to commemorate the start of a $3.2 million renovation project of the Lincoln Building, located on the 300 block of Wyoming Street, Syracuse.
The Lincoln Building, formerly known as the Lincoln Supply Warehouse, is a 100-year-old, four story property that will be renovated to create 30,000 square feet of mixed-use commercial and residential space. The renovation will transform the first two floors into commercial space and the top two floors into live/work artist lofts.
The building is designed to demonstrate innovations in green technologies for energy and environmental systems, with SyracuseCoE funding the design of green systems for the project. The effort is led by SyracuseCoE Gold Partner C&S Companies, with contributions from SyracuseCoE Charter Member Northeast Green Building Consulting, Earth Sensitive Solutions, John Todd Ecological Design, Intelligent Converted Energy, Building Energy Solutions, and Steven Winter Associates.
The project is one of the first in the country that has been designed using a proposed new rating system that is being developed by SyracuseCoE Charter Member the US Green Building Council for mid-rise, multi-family residential buildings. The Lincoln Building is designed to achieve a Gold rating in the new LEED system, one step below the highest rating.
