Our next Pocket Neighborhood community:  Amabel

The preliminary site plan for the Amabel community

Site plan for the Amabel community

The name Amabel comes from the genealogy of the original three-generation landowners, the Mobbs.  The Mobbs’ family name was derived from the medieval female name – “Amabel”

The Amabel Pocket Neighborhood project will provide 30 single-family homes on a gorgeous piece of land close to downtown Ithaca, the beautiful Cayuga Lake, Buttermilk Falls State park, the Ithaca Farmers’ Market, Greenstar grocery, shopping, restaurants, and many other destinations reachable by walking, bike, canoe, or kayak. The houses are arranged to allow private enjoyment of the site’s exquisite natural beauty while simultaneously creating opportunities for interactions among residents and visitors.
