Onondaga County Lakeview Amphitheater    

Onondaga County Lakeview Amphitheater

The Lakeview Amphitheater is proposed as a new outdoor events center to be built on County-owned property located on the west shore of Onondaga Lake. EDR was originally contacted by Onondaga County representatives in January 2014 to prepare a conceptual rendering of an amphitheater on Lakeview Point, and this rendering assisted in obtaining support and state-level funding for the project. EDR was then asked to join the lead consultant/engineer (C&S Companies) to serve as the primary consultant for master plan design, visioning/rendering, and environmental regulatory compliance. The multi-disciplinary nature of our firm allowed for efficient and effective collaborations, both internally among EDR staff and externally with the entire project team and Onondaga County.
