Genesee Brewery Visitor Center APPROVED!

March 14th, 2012

Plans for the Genesee Brewery Visitor Center are approved. Proof that the demolition of 13 Cataract is not necessary to build the visitor center.
Call it hard evidence; definitive proof that the immediate demolition of 13 Cataract external link is NOT necessary for the Brewery’s visitor center to be built.

Here external link is the notice of Site Plan Approval of the visitor center at 25 Cataract Street. Now let’s ask ourselves again, why can’t the people of Rochester have time to explore the possibilities for the redevelopment of 13 Cataract across the street? 13 Cataract isn’t holding up the project. It’s not falling down as reported by the Brewery’s own structural report external link. And additional parking is not needed as admitted by the Brewery on Monday when they said a stage would be set up in the place of 13 Cataract.

So why then must we sacrifice the potential for TWO great development projects external link to take place in a neighborhood that could really use the extra jobs and long term public interest?

The only remaining argument from Rich Lozyniak, CEO North American Breweries, is that drug dealers and prostitutes “practice their craft behind the building.” Even if this were true, would that be the fault of the building? Or the absentee landlord? The solution: Give the building to people who will find a full time use for it. A parking lot won’t solve crime or social problems. Neither will a visitor center that is only open part time.

Two great projects? Or one (with a parking lot)? This is the question. Send an email to the Brewery and City Hall external link and show your support for a larger vision—Rochester’s Brewery Square.

Imagine yourself and a few friends enjoying magnificant views, great conversation and cool Genesee brews in Rochester's Historic Brewery Square. [RENDERING: RochesterSubway.com]

One Response to “Genesee Brewery Visitor Center APPROVED!”

  1. Elmer says:

    To my knowledge they (GBCO) still uses the Rail Road Tracks (pictured above) to get the grain, hops, etc,…at least as of 1990. Second is that the Cataract Building should have been torn down, due to neglect of the building and the option of expansion in the future. This is my opinion. Thank You.
