RocLinks 2/28/15

You might have stepped out of your house any day this month and thought to yourself, ‘Self, it’s kinda cold out. Maybe even colder than normal.’ If you did, you’re correct external link, it was the coldest month on record. If you did not, then please consult your doctor.

From local development to just plain news of the weird, here are your RocLinks for this past week…

Local artist collective Hope Mountain is having a poster sale.

The Arts

Local artist collective Hope Mountain (who you’ll be hearing a ton more about on Monday!) is having a poster sale external link at Needle Drop Records external link on Saturday at noon. Go for the art, stay for the music.

Date Night!

585 Mag has some date night suggestions external link that they finally put online from their January issue (it’s really hard to link to print!). With any luck, the suggestions will double up as advice to keep warm as well.

Midtown Minus the Mid and Town

You might recall that we’ve previously discussed Site 5 at Midtown (multiple times). Well now I’m happy to report that the city has rejected both proposals external link! Look forward to a decade of a dirt lot followed by a performing arts center followed by a casino followed by a bail bonds and pawn shop to be built at the site (this is my not-so-professional prediction).

NOMNOMNOM

And finally, we’re stuck reporting way out in the suburbs, this time Victor, because a story like this one external link doesn’t happen every day. A diamond ring makes for some pretty sharp cheddar, if you catch my drift!

As always, use the comments below as open discussion for anything in these links – or let us know if there’s a topic you’d like to see us hit more aggressively in future RocLinks. Have a great weekend!

  1. Dustin W. says:

    I honestly didn’t like either of the proposals for Site 5. I still prefer the original plan by Buckingham (I’m sure most people would agree). The way I see it is that it’s better that they wait a little longer for something better. Who knows, maybe Buckingham Properties will decide to come back and build something similar to their original proposal.

  2. Stan says:

    Re: Midtown parcel 5, I think beautifully landscaped green space would actually work well for that site. Imagine a giant reflecting pool (that doubles as an ice rink in the winter) lined with trees, a la the Narional Mall. There could also be a stage for XRIJF and Party in the Park concerts.

    Looking around on site is very dramatic: tall, beautiful buildings in every direction.

    There’s so much empty retail and office space that adding more of either would just add to vacancy rates, IMO.

  3. Carl says:

    Re: Midtown; so, in typical Rochester fashion, what gets torn down is a pretty cool example of a mid-century/jetsonian two-story enclosed shopping mall, with 3 levels of parking, and an office building and hotel as well, to be replaced by ummm…nothing. Honestly, it’s just what I expected of my home town, given the city govt’s track record.
