Downtown Syracuse is the center of our city, and is recognized as a place where communities converge and new connections are established.

This theme will be explored on November 1, as the 2018 Progress Breakfast series presented by the Downtown Committee and Mower continues. Attendees will learn about the ways three organizations with a stake in Downtown Syracuse are working to bring people together, and the significance of each entity’s contributions to Downtown’s revitalization.

First, David Nutting, Chairman and CEO of VIP Structures, will preview VIP Structure’s exciting plans for the former Post-Standard Building in Clinton Square, which will bring new apartments, office and commercial space to Downtown’s northern-most neighborhood. Nutting will speak to the value of building connections across the community.

The Upstate Minority Economic Alliance, founded in 2015, is the only Minority Chamber of Commerce in Central New York. Focused on harnessing the economic power of the minority community, Executive Director Rickey Brown will discuss opportunities for Downtown businesses and developers to partner with UMEA to enhance productivity and build greater connections across our region. 

On the southern end of Downtown Syracuse, the Allyn Family Foundation’s plans for a public market, food hall and mixed-income housing will catalyze development not only in Downtown Syracuse, but on the city’s near-west side and near-southside as well. Through Meg O’Connell, Executive Director of the Allyn Family Foundation, Progress Breakfast attendees will be treated to an exclusive glimpse into the forward-thinking plans underway for the space at 484 South Salina Street, and learn why the Allyn Family Foundation chose Downtown Syracuse.

The program begins at 8:15 am on Thursday, November 1 at SKY Armory, located at 351 South Clinton Street (map). 

Tickets are $25/seat, or you may purchase a table of eight seats for $200. Click here to purchase tickets.
