University Hill Corporation
The University Hill Corporation, formed in 1963 as an independent 501(c)(3) planning and development organization, is comprised of the executive leadership of the Hill’s not-for-profit organizations, medical facilities, and academic institutions. Since its inception, it has been charged with making thoughtful, long-range plans that will maintain the Hill community as a place where people want to live, work, and study.
The Corporation works with its members to implement an active agenda, planning for growth, development, and social well-being of University Hill. The organization seeks to adopt specific projects that maintain the excellence of the community’s educational and medical facilities, support the Hill’s business districts, strengthen its residential neighborhoods, and enhance the quality of life in the area.
University Hill institutions play an important role in creating a thriving, globally-connected and innovative community. Members of the University Hill Corporation are actively engaged in efforts that impact the entire Central New York community and economy. Between 2014 and 2015 alone, institutions on the Hill generated more than $650 million in total development. As a result of these projects, the University Hill is joining Downtown and the Syracuse Waterfront as one of the most rapidly growing neighborhoods in the region. Additionally, more than 25,000 people, or 8 percent of all employees in the Syracuse metropolitan area, go to work on the Hill.
