Ithaca Beer Construction Update, 2/2016

25 02 2016

From the outside, work to Ithaca Beer’s $7.2 million, 23,800 SF addition is complete. The new wing will hold a new bottling production line, an expanded packaging area, and more barrels for aging the yeasty brew. According to the Voice interview I did with Ithaca Beer marketing director Gregg Stacy back in November, the new equipment should be on-site by March. The new wing should be fully up and running sometime this spring.

The new addition and expanded capacity are expected to create 22 jobs, according to the project’s tax abatement application. As an economic development project, Ithaca Beer applied for and received standard 7-year tax abatements from the Tompkins County Industrial Development Authority (TCIDA). Local firm HOLT Architects is listed as the designer(s)-in-charge.

In addition to HOLT, Rowlee Construction Inc. of Fulton is the Design-Build Contractor, and Syracuse-based Fortune Engineering Group was involved with the structural design (a big thanks to HOLT’s Maria Livingston for the additional info).

Hi Heather,
Thanks for the note, I’ve fixed the article. I should probably hit the publish button *after* I’ve had my morning coffee…
