Syracuse, N.Y. -- A city agency has approved an increase in the value of sales tax exemptions for two development projects that have run millions of dollars over their original construction budgets. Pioneer Cos. reported spending $14.2 million more than its original $27.5 million budget to redevelop the historic, 21-story State Tower Building at 109 S. Warren St. It converted vacant and underutilized office space on the building's upper floors into 61 apartments and renovated office and retail space on its lower floors. Much of the extra spending was to correct water damage to the building's exterior, the company said. More than 60,000 lineal feet of asbestos-containing caulking was replaced and many of the building's parapets were rebuilt.
