MARCY, N.Y. -- Shovels are now in the ground for a new dorm building on the campus of SUNY Poly.

It's a nearly $28 million project.

“Hilltop" Residence Hall will be the first "zero-net energy-ready" dorm ever to be built in the SUNY system.

The building will use an amount of energy equal to or less than the amount of energy it can produce on site, through renewable sources.

A total of 257 students will call Hilltop home.

"With this groundbreaking, it's really a milestone for this campus as we continue to realize much more aggressive growth so that we can serve the workforce needs in the Mohawk Valley region,” said Grace Wang, the interim president.

The residence hall is expected to open fall of 2020.
