Living in Downtown Syracuse
Downtown Syracuse is home to roughly 2,700 residents who enjoy walking to work, entertainment and restaurants, cultural activities, shopping, and outdoor festivals and events. Downtown residents come from diverse backgrounds and are students, young professionals, and empty nesters.
Downtown Syracuse offers three primary residential neighborhoods: Armory Square; Hanover Square; and Presidential Plaza.
Armory Square offers more than 80 units of loft and condo style apartments in beautifully renovated buildings. Residents of Armory Square enjoy access to restaurants, nightlife, shopping, parks, services, transportation, museums, live performances, and art galleries at their fingertips.
In 2001, a number of the upper floors of Hanover Square's historic buildings were converted into loft style apartments. Hanover Square residents enjoy living in a European style neighborhood and the ability to walk out their door for a cup of coffee or a bite to eat.
Presidential Plaza, on the eastside of downtown, consists of multi-story apartments and townhouses. Presidential Plaza's proximity to the hospitals on University Hill makes it a popular home for medical students and doctors.
