Creekwalk Commons is Syracuse’s Newest Livable Address
Armory Square was already the hottest address in Syracuse, but with the arrival of Creekwalk Commons, the downtown destination has become the most livable city neighborhood in Central New York. The new residential complex—conceived from the start as upscale student housing—sets a new standard for the ideal urban living experience. The apartments for rent will particularly appeal to international students accustomed to life in the world’s major cities as the mixed-use complex will have 75 residential units above a series of businesses.
“Our vision was to create a residential complex that simplifies city living” said Charles Breuer, the project manager leading the construction. “People who live here will be in the middle of the most beautiful part of Downtown Syracuse with easy access to restaurants and downtown shopping, as well as amenities designed just for residents.”
People accustomed to world-class architectural design will be especially drawn to the new building. The soaring ceilings and spacious interiors create open airy apartments that look out on the city and one of the most famous architectural landmarks in Syracuse. Many of the apartments in Creekwalk Commons will have perfectly-framed views of the Niagara Mohawk building, a masterpiece of Art Deco design built in 1932 that is widely considered one of the most beautiful buildings in Central New York.
The fully-furnished apartments have been laid out to maximize comfort and privacy. Acknowledging the modern urban lifestyle, the architects have designed ample storage with deft control of spaces. Roommates have personal storage and private space, as well as open living areas that invite connection. The complex also includes an attached parking garage, a large game room, and on-premises laundry facilities. Most importantly, rent includes utility charges, cable and high-speed internet connection.
Creekwalk Commons was designed by Dalpos architects in conjunction with Hueber Breuer, a construction firm with a long history in Central New York. The architects have been very innovative in reconfiguring the former office building as evidenced by the floor plans. “Every apartment is unique” says architect Jim Knittel. “This is not a cookie-cutter apartment complex.”
That unique approach is deliberate. “When you have people from around the world coming to study in a great American city, you don’t want an undistinguished box to live in” says Breuer. “Part of living in a city is feeling like you’re a part of everything. Our design goal is to make each apartment feel like it’s integrated into the life of the city and the university.”
Apartments will be ready for occupancy in August, but to accommodate demand from international students particularly, the owners are providing rooms in the Jefferson Clinton Hotel, a three-star boutique hotel ranked the number 1 hotel in Syracuse on Tripadvisor.com
