Cornell University

Rowing Center

Ithaca, New York


This redevelopment of Cornell University's rowing facilities on the Lake Cayuga Inlet provides updated facilities for more than 150 athletes on the Men's Heavyweight, Men's Lightweight and Women's Openweight teams. HGA's solution repurposes several aging facilities while adding new facilities to create a harmonious "village" of buildings that are clearly identified as Cornell Rowing.

The 31,500-square-foot Rowing Center includes a "Heritage" room with memorabilia displays for alumni and team event, multipurpose training room for workouts and events, five boat storage bays, a repair bay, a launch storage building, locker rooms for all three teams, laundry facilities, and a lobby and exterior gathering space for informal team meetings and interactions.
