As North American Breweries / Genesee Brewery are preparing to demolish the Cataract Brewhouse, we are preparing to capture the tragic event as it unfolds. Crystal Pix, Inc. (Fairport, NY) has graciously volunteered to document the development of the GardenAerial project, and as part of that story, the demolition of 13 Cataract will be immortalized as well… sadly.
These are a few shots taken by Crystal Pix while scouting for vantage points from which to capture the destruction. The shot above was taken from one of the buildings on Saint Paul Street owned by John Thomas Properties. Thank you John Trickey for opening up his building to us. And while I’m at it, thank you to Crystal Pix for donating your talents and all the time toward the GardenAerial project.
This shot was taken from the 15th floor of First Federal Plaza on Main Street…
And this is 13 Cataract as seen from the High Falls parking ramp on State Street…
The metal grain silos obscuring the view of the building will most likely be removed before the building is demolished. I wonder how much all that metal would be worth at the scrap yard?
Anyway, while we don’t yet know the exact dates of the demolition, keep it tuned to RochesterSubway.com and our Facebook page for the latest updates. I know how we Rochesterians love to watch a good train wreck.
Hey, remember this one…
On the bright side, maybe the Brewery will schedule this one for the 4th of July. The City could save some money on their fireworks display.
