DASNY Success Stories

INNOVATIVE COMMUNITIES: NYU's 370 Jay Street 

When New York University’s 370 Jay Street opens its doors in the fall of 2017, its 500,000 square feet spread over 14 floors will almost double the University’s footprint in Brooklyn and bring scientists, engineers and digital artists together to drive innovation at the heart of the borough’s blooming technology sector. The facility at 370 Jay Street in Downtown Brooklyn is central to NYU’s expansion in the sciences and technology, which builds in part on the strong foundation of NYU’s nearby Tandon School of Engineering. 

HEALTH: Stony Brook Saves on Cancer-fighting Technology through DASNY

SUNY University Hospital Health Center at Stony Brook needed vital medical equipment for its new 10-level, 225,000-square-foot, 150-Bed Tower and its new eight level, 240,000-square-foot Medicine and Research Translation (MART) Building. By working with DASNY and its Tax-Exempt Equipment Leasing Program (“TELP”), Stony Brook closed an $18.5 million lease for cutting-edge cancer care technology and other equipment.

MWBE: Growing Capacity for Greater Inclusion

Like other MWBE and small firms, J.P. West was caught in a Catch-22 when it came to securing certain State contracts. The firm, led by President Eileen Frank, did not have the requisite experience to compete to be a broker of record for Commercial and General Excess Liability Insurance. And yet it could not get that experience without an opportunity. In Fiscal 2017, DASNY responded to this Catch-22 for MWBE firms by studying the market and gaining a perspective from majority and MWBE firms alike.

RESILIENCY: Strengthening New York Against Powerful Storms 
When Hurricane Irene plowed into upstate New York in August 2011, its heavy rain and powerful wind caused widespread flooding and power outages. In the City of Amsterdam, power outages caused critical government operations to close for several days after the storm. The Governor’s Office of Storm Recovery (GOSR) and DASNY are partnering with the city and community stakeholders to make sure that doesn’t happen again.

PARTNERSHIPS: Siebert Cisneros Shank & Co. Adds Value at Every Step 
In 1996, Suzanne Shank founded Siebert Cisneros Shank & Co., L.L.C. She has been busy since, partnering with DASNY and growing the MWBE full-service investment banking and financial services firm into national prominence as its majority owner. Siebert Cisneros Shank & Co.’s partnership with DASNY started more than 20 years ago, and its role has grown from a member of DASNY’s co-manager pool of underwriters to senior manager. 

PARKS: Letchworth State Park's Humphrey Nature Center Creates Economic Boon 

Letchworth State Park, known as the “Grand Canyon of the East,” was already drawing more than 800,000 visitors annually before the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation, DASNY and the private sector partnered to develop the Humphrey Nature Center. The 5,000-square-foot Center completed in July 2016 offers year-round experiences for all ages.

MENTAL HEALTH: Advancing the State of Care
Rising on the shores of Staten Island is a new $257 million inpatient building at the South Beach Psychiatric Center. When construction formally began in September 2016, it was a demonstration of resiliency and New York State’s commitment to transform mental health care for its most vulnerable residents.The new inpatient building will maximize opportunities for connections between care givers and their patients. 


HOUSING: Supporting New Yorkers in Need 

A deteriorating former nursing home in Ronkonkoma on Long Island. A long-vacant big box store in the Buffalo suburb of West Seneca. Both transformed into affordable, supportive housing that brings new life to the surrounding neighborhoods and to those who will call them home. Across New York State, DASNY provides construction services to support Governor Andrew M. Cuomo’s mission to create more than 100,000 units of affordable and supportive housing over the next five years.


HEALTHY COMMUNITIES: Fighting the "Worst Drug Scourge" 
New York Governor Andrew M. Cuomo calls the opioid epidemic the “worst drug scourge” the nation has ever seen. The rampant abuse of heroin and similar drugs is destroying lives and ripping families apart. The Governor is leveraging the resources of New York State to fight back. Over the last four years, he has doubled funding to programs that battle chemical depndency with recovery services, education and training to help get addicts back on their feet. 


EDUCATION: Design-Build Speeds Delivery of The College at Brockport Residence Hall

Rising on The College at Brockport campus is a new 256- bed residence hall scheduled for completion in late summer 2018 to accommodate incoming students. The project is expected to be among the fastest delivered by DASNY, thanks to design-build, a procurement method that speeds design and construction timelines while keeping costs down.

It is the first project in recent memory where DASNY has applied design-build.

EDUCATION: Delivering $380 Million in Energy Efficiency Projects for CUNY 
The City University of New York and DASNY are teaming up to deliver $380 million in energy efficiency projects on 15 campuses, helping CUNY fulfill Governor Andrew M. Cuomo’s BuildSmartNY initiative to reduce energy consumption in public buildings.

“With these energy efficient projects across the CUNY system, New York continues to lead the way in making innovative upgrades to preserve our environment and reduce our carbon footprint,” Governor Cuomo said.

EDUCATING COMMUNITIES: CUNY & DASNY: A 50-Year Partnership 

This past year we celebrated the 50th anniversary of the partnership between DASNY and CUNY. Forged by a State law enacted in 1966, the financing and construction partnership has developed millions of square feet of classrooms, laboratories and libraries, and established CUNY as an interconnected university system that lives up to its promise to expand access to higher education and raise up generations of New Yorkers.

 
EDUCATION: University at Albany: A Towering Achievement

The corners of the SUNY University at Albany’s campus are marked by four monolithic residence halls, the highest points of the modernist design created in the 1960s by Edward D. Stone. Designed in 1968, the youngest of the four is Mohawk Tower. And while it appears resolute from the outside, DASNY, SUNY Albany and Cannon Design teamed up to reimagine its outdated interior layout and systems. 


 
EDUCATION
: Monroe Community College: A Designed Interior
Rochester has long been a center of innovation in Western New York. It is where George Eastman and Henry Strong decided to build their photography empire. It is the birthplace of Bausch & Lomb and Xerox. This year, when Monroe Community College (MCC) opens the doors of its new $78 million, 255,000-square-foot Downtown Campus on State Street in Rochester for the fall semester, MCC will greatly expand its ability to provide the education and training for jobs that will further fuel the region’s resurging economy.  

 
LEGAL: Schoeman Updike & Kaufman LLP’s Journey to Success with DASNY 
When Schoeman Updike & Kaufman LLP’s journey started in 1969, the firm was composed of all men. Now, nearly 50 years later, it has evolved into a certified women-owned business enterprise (WBE) – one that recently graduated from an “emerging firm” for DASNY to one placed on three DASNY panels in 2016. 


 
CONSTRUCTION: DASNY and Goshow Architects: Journey to Success
Forging diverse partnerships, as DASNY knows, is a crucial element to remaining one of the nation’s largest issuers of low-cost, tax-exempt bonds and one of its biggest public builders. Such is the case with long-time DASNY partner Goshow Architects. It is a relationship that began at one of the premier networking events in the state – the annual MWBE forum.

 
LEGAL: Journey to Success with DASNY: Bryant Rabbino LLP
When Seth Bryant founded his law firm in 2009, his goal was to grow a corporate transactional firm in New York City. The New York State certified minority-owned firm, which reorganized as Bryant Rabbino LLP in 2012, has grown in size and stature with the help of its partnership with DASNY. Bryant Rabbino’s success through that partnership is an excellent example of how New York State’s focus on MWBE contracting helps grow capacity among emerging firms.



 
HEALTH: Orange Regional Medical Center Expands Outpatient Services and Cancer Services
The fight against cancer took a huge step forward on September 26th, 2016. That’s when Orange Regional Medical Center (ORMC) welcomed patients to its new cancer center and a new outpatient building in the Town of Wallkill– buildings funded in large part with tax exempt bonds from DASNY. It is part of DASNY’s long-standing commitment to provide best-in-class health care institutions with the resources they need to better serve their communities. 


EDUCATION:
UAlbany: “DASNY means getting things done"

DASNY recently renovated SUNY University at Albany’s Onondaga and Oneida residence halls. The work for Onondaga was a full renovation and included new heating, electrical and plumbing systems, windows, flooring, painting and furniture. The construction work was led by DASNY Project Manager Sam Gleason, whose team has worked with the University at Albany for years and has developed a rapport and reputation with the University’s Office of Facilities Management and the Office of Residential Life that has made UAlbany a repeat DASNY customer.

Students returning for fall semester at SUNY campuses across New York State were greeted with more than $35 million in upgrades, all executed by DASNY in 90 days or less after students left campus this summer. The improvements will make SUNY campuses across the state more attractive as they compete for the world’s top students, educators and researchers.

City University of New York Chancellor Matthew Goldstein pledged a resurgence of science in 2001. He and the Board of Trustees set in motion what would become CUNY’s “Decade of Science.” The $2 billion effort to attract and retain the best and brightest scientists included a vision of a capstone science center where researchers would reach across disciplines to deliver high-value breakthroughs.

HEALTHBronx Behavioral Health Campus: A Vision of Hope 
The New York State Office of Mental Health (OMH) needed a new behavioral health facility in the Bronx that would provide New York’s most vulnerable residents with a place to heal, recover and find independence. DASNY delivered it to them with the $350 million Bronx Behavioral Health Campus on a 35-acre site in Morris Park. The campus is a model for using design and structure to transform mental health care from the long hospital stays that were the norm when the center was first built. 

 
EDUCATIONDASNY Combines Sustainability with Community at SUNY Oswego
SUNY Oswego’s $11.5 million renovation of Waterbury Hall is giving new meaning to campus life with energy-efficient community spaces for the 224 students who live there. As sunlight floods the lake-view rooms at Waterbury Hall, lighting automatically dims to conserve energy. Bright and airy spaces allow students to congregate, study and interact. 


 
HEALTH: Low Cost Financing Through DASNY Helps Hospitals Save Lives 
DASNY delivered $225 million in low-cost leases through its Tax-Exempt Equipment Leasing Program (TELP) to health care organizations in Fiscal 2016. These leases make it possible for health care providers to deploy the latest medical equipment. This technology makes electronic record-sharing possible, improves delivery of vital services and leads to better patient outcomes.

 
EDUCATION: DASNY Helps Suffolk County Libraries Reinvest in Their Communities
Smithtown Special Library District, Rogers Memorial Library Company and Comsewogue Public Library will collectively save $2.8 million in debt service payments by refunding through DASNY in bond deals that closed in March 2016. By bundling Smithtown Special Library District, Long Island’s largest library system, Rogers Memorial Library Company and Comsewogue Public Library, DASNY enabled all three to achieve economies of scale by sharing the costs of issuance.
