Monday, July 13, 2009, Nancy L. Zimpher, the new State University of New York chancellor, was in Syracuse to take part in the groundbreaking for the Central New York Biotechnology Research Center being built between East Fayette and East Water Streets.
The center, a joint project of SUNY Upstate Medical University and the SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry, will be built on four-acres of the 14-acre former Kennedy Square public housing project. The project was built in the 1970s and suffered from declining occupancy and lack of maintenance.
The $20-million, 60,000-square-foot facility will create and support biotechnology, educational and research programs. The center will lease space to business involved in medical device development, medical research and biotechnology.
SUNY Upstate is seeking development ideas for the remaining 10 acres of the Kennedy Square site.
