Downtown Syracuse Gateway Demonstration Project

Synapse purchased the former vacant property along Erie Blvd. East and South State Street in 2011 and redeveloped it utilizing green building practices. This building is located at the Eastern gateway to Syracuse’s downtown districts. The building serve as Synapse's Corporate Headquarters.

The re-development project included:

  • Interior and exterior renovations creating additional office space for the growing Synapse companies;
  • Installation of a 22 kW solar photovoltaic system on the building roof;
  • Installation of nine electric vehicle charging stations along the 300 E. Water Street block, powered in part by the roof-mounted PV system;
  • Installation of a green roof; and
  • Green infrastructure improvements including porous pavers, vegetation planting, streetscape, and cistern rainwater collectors to assist in the overall combined sewer overflow initiative.

The sustainable redevelopment of this building and the Historic Erie Canal Block is truly an exemplary model of how a public-private partnership can affect change in a distressed urban area.

The building upon completion will receive USGBC LEED EB Platinum certification.
