Tour Information

The Downtown Living Tour has always been an effective event that markets the uniqueness and diversity of residential units in downtown. The tour offers something for everyone, from young professionals and empty nesters looking to live downtown, as well as those interested in historic preservation, interior design, architecture, and urban living.

Tour-goers can see why Downtown Syracuse has become the neighborhood of choice as doors are opened to adaptive reuse projects featuring market-rate and luxury apartments, live/work spaces and "green" condos. The tour highlights both occupied and available units in several of downtown's historic neighborhoods including Armory Square, Hanover Square, Clinton Square, the Heart of Downtown and Franklin Square.

The Downtown Living Tour is presented by the Downtown Committee of Syracuse, Inc., a private, not-for-profit, professional downtown management organization, representing all property owners and tenants within the central business district. It is the hope of the Downtown Committee that the Downtown Living Tour builds awareness of the importance of residential development as a key element in a vibrant and successful downtown, as well as increases awareness of the revitalization taking place in Downtown Syracuse.
