Harold's Square

Harolds Square is a 180,000 SF building with 78 apartments in a twelve story tower in the heart of downtown Ithaca, New York. In addition to the  78 market-rate apartments, there approximately 70,000 square feet of Class-A office and retail space on the first four floors of the development.  The project also included the rehabilitation of the historic Sage Building, a fixture on State Street since 1884.

The Harolds Square building was designed and built with a focus on sustainability, achieving tier-three NYSERDA certification: the Harolds Square building will use at least 40% less energy than a similarly code-built building.

125 E State Street, Ithaca, NY
