Cortland County, New York
The SUNY Cortland Student Life Center is a recreational athletic facility on the SUNY Cortland campus in Cortland, NY. On behalf of the State University Construction Fund, EDR coordinated the review of the project’s potential environmental impacts in accordance with the New York State Environmental Quality Review Act (SEQRA). This included preparation of Draft and Final Environmental Impact Statements, a Phase 1A cultural resources survey, visual assessment, shadow analysis, and preparation of the SEQRA Findings Statement. EDR’s visual simulations included detailed representations of the architectural treatment and materials for the building, various landscaping plans, and depictions of proposed vegetation in both the newly planted and mature condition, which allowed for the campus community, local neighbors, and regulatory agencies to better understand the appearance and visual character of the proposed facility.
