VIP Structures

The Post-Standard building in downtown Syracuse will undergo a $30 million renovation by VIP Structures, the architecture and engineering company that recently purchased the building. Developers are seeking tax breaks from the city.

VIP Structures will relocate its offices into the building that was the former headquarters of The Post-Standard. The newspaper is still printed in the space. Nora Spillane, the executive director of the Syracuse Industrial Development Agency, said construction includes three new stories with 40 luxury and premium apartments and ten affordable units.
