New Gateway Planned for SUNY-ESF
Building to showcase green technologies, host outreach events and house Roosevelt Wildlife collection
A $28.3 million building will be built at the southwest corner of Forestry Drive and Campus Drive
A 40,000 square foot building will serve as a gateway to the campus of the SUNY College of Environmental Science as well as a place for workshops, conferences, and conventions hosted by ESF Outreach.
ESF President Cornelius "Neil" Murphy Jr. said, "We've been fortunate. A couple years ago, Senator John DeFrancisco provided the seed money to get this started and the rest of the Central New York delegation helped us with an additional $22 million in this last appropriation cycle."
The new ESF gateway building will also feature a public display of some of the estimated 15,000 wildlife specimens - fish, birds, bears, lions, insects and everything else in between - that the college has collected since 1919.
The design process is just beginning but President Murphy said it will include the latest environmental technologies. Construction is expected to start in the fall of 2009.Office of Communications
