The purpose of this report is to provide baseline data of properties located along the Connective Corridor. The data will serve as a tool to measure development of the Connective Corridor over time. Information in this report is presented in four sections. 1) Aggregated parcels 2) Downtown 3) University area, and 4) Arts and Lodging The downtown is defined by the geographic area extending from East Adams to Route 690 (south to north) and West Street to I-81 (east to west). The university parcels are confined within Harrison (south to north) and Irving streets to Comstock Avenue (east to west). Arts, cultural organizations, lodging, and other amenities all play an important role in ensuring the growth and success of a community. Relevant information is presented to learn from areas that have enjoyed success. Comparative data are used to view how the greater Syracuse area compares to the other regions in the state, across the state and the nation.
