Schwartz Plaza Remodel to Create ‘Urban Plaza’ in Collegetown

Cornell plans to vastly redesign Schwartz Plaza in Collegetown — complete with benches, tables and chairs — in time for the fall semester, when open seats at College­town Bagels across the street are a hard find.

“We’ve been talking about this project for probably close to five or six years,” David Cutter ’85, campus landscape architect, told The Sun.

Construction on the plaza will begin in June, pending Planning Board approval, and Cornell expects the new gathering space to be completed in mid-August.
