Earlier today, City Hall released news that Tompkins Financial, parent company of the Tompkins Trust Company, has proposed to build a new headquarters building in downtown Ithaca. This project would consolidate many of the various Tompkins Financial operations under one roof and will provide space for this growing Ithaca based financial services company. The location is on the north side of Seneca Street adjacent to the Dewitt Mall and on property owned by the institution. Plans for the project will be forthcoming as the building winds its way through the City’s site plan review process.
We are delighted, indeed excited, that Tompkins Financial has chosen to build in downtown Ithaca—in the heart of our community. This project is sure to both preserve and add jobs to the downtown core and it places a major employer and community asset right in the commercial and geographic center of our city. Thank you to the board and leadership of Tompkins Financial for their far sighted decision and their commitment to a vibrant and dynamic downtown.
