Syracuse, NY

QPK Design provided conceptual design through construction documents and will execute

construction administration through 2024. The concept was designed to provide a two-story

addition to the existing one-story structure and completely removing the exterior envelope,

only keeping a portion of the existing structure intact. Creating a one-of-a-kind, Technology

Hub located within Syracuse’s Business District.

For over thirteen years, The Tech Garden has evolved from a “Space for rent incubator” to a

“Full-service incubator” to become the premier business incubator in Central NY. The Tech

Garden is host to countless community innovation events, thought leader gatherings, and

diverse business building activities. However, as The Tech Garden has evolved, the facility has

remained static. Historically, the Tech Garden has struggled with physical identity and street

branding, flexibility of space issues, and mechanical systems limitations. The concept was

designed to allow continuity of operation for the current building tenants.

The program consisting of the following:

▪ Create a new entrance including elevator lobby, reception and support spaces

▪ Future Expansion Drone-zone - Maker Space -23,000 SF flexible space
