The SUNY Upstate Biotechnology Center project is part of a continuing collaboration between the Save the Rain Program and SUNY Upstate. This project was the fourth SUNY Upstate project to be a part of the Save the Rain Program to date, and was completed in conjunction with the redevelopment of Kennedy Square.
Along with the demolition of the former apartment complex and construction of the new biotechnology center and new parking lots, multiple bioretention areas were constructed to manage stormwater runoff from the site. In total, runoff from an area of 179,000 square feet is managed, resulting in an annual stormwater capture of over 3 million gallons.
