RocLinks 6/11/16

Looking towards the Hungerford Building in EMMA [PHOTO: Rochester Municipal Archives]
By Matthew Denker

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

Big Plans, Small Nabe

EMMA doesn’t seem to like a bunch of one bedroom apartments coming to the neighborhood, but Home Leasing is going aheadexternal link with a pretty big project for a small neighborhood. I’ve often thought that this is a neighborhood with an incredible amount of potential, but like many neighborhoods in Rochester, it lacks the density to attract the amenities that the people living there want. With a rather sizable stable of vacant lots, a few too many large private parking lots, and a general focus on other parts of the city, it could still be a while.

Ever-so-Slightly-Afield

St. John Fisher is planning to build a sizable new chapelexternal link on campus. No images, but for that amount of money, it should be pretty nice. Groundbreaking is in July.

Ongoing Dumpster Fire(s)

The D&C asks whatever happened to the Irondequoit Mall?external link Spoiler alert: it’s still a rotting husk in limbo. You should scout the article, though, because they have some lovely history of the building/complex over the years too.

Calling all Artists!

The City released an RFPexternal link looking for artists to submit designs for public art to be installed near Brooks Landing. If this sounds up your alley, I highly encourage you to do so. If you need help writing a proposal, you know where to find me.

Crime Watch

There has been a recent spate of criminal activityexternal link over at Blossom and Winton. Be safe out there.

Take a Seat

And finally, Reconnect Rochester has a spectacular story about a do-it-yourself transportation improvement.external link I don’t want to spoil the fun, but I commend the guys on their ingenuity.

  1. AryehCW says:

    There’s a weird cultural attitude in the city in which any new project should be opposed if it’s not perfect. This kind of thinking is sadly self-defeating.

  2. Michael says:

    while I agree with most of your sentiment AryehCW, I do believe we cannot sit here and allow for just anything to be plopped anywhere

  3. Roger says:

    Couple pics of the chapel at St. John Fisher can be found here: http://www.sjfc.edu/news/detail.dot?id=eaab02c6-965d-4b2f-b801-861b58677ecc

  4. Richard F Rolwing says:

    For those of us not on a first-name basis with “EMMA” what is the street in the foreground running off to the right?

  5. Should be Hayward Ave headed west from North Goodman.
