The Copper Beech Commons Green Improvement Fund project, located at 1055 E. Genesee Street, is part of a larger redevelopment project at the Genesee Armory Building. The site is now home to luxury apartments that cater to student populations from various universities on the hill. The facility boasts a prime location on the Genesee street corridor and is within walking distance of University Hill and Downtown Syracuse.
The project incorporates the use of green infrastructure techniques to manage stormwater runoff on site, including: an underground stormwater management facility, with large storage chambers and two drywells, porous pavers and added green space. These green practices capture stormwater runoff from approximately 73,796 square feet of impervious area.
In total, the Copper Beech Commons project captures an estimated 1,405,500 gallons annually.
