Community Features

Designed as a pocket community, the neighborhood includes fifteen single family homes on just over two acres. The homes face inward toward open communal green space, with separate ample parking area. The community includes two open air pavilions for gathering outside and a large bike shed and recycling center. Our goal with The Cottages at Fall Creek Crossing is to promote a strong sense of community, positive neighborhood relationships, easy to care for private yards, affordable living with shared maintenance services. We invite you to explore what the community, and homes have to offer.

Public Transportation: A new bus stop is proposed to be located on Dryden Road directly in front of the Cottages at Fall Creek Crossing providing regular TCAT bus service to Cornell Campus and downtown Ithaca via Route 40, Route 43, and Route 53 during the weekdays, and Route 75 during the weekends.
