The new Downtown Syracuse Plaza project launch was a great success. Mayor Stefanie Miner kicked off proceedings at the Suny Oswego Metro Center, and a large part of the community came down to meet the creative team behind the project – critical acclaimed designer Jerry Van Eyck and world renowned artist Cecil Balmond. Initial feedback was encouraging, with the project being positively received by the people. It was a great way to kick off an initiative of this scope and ambition.
