RocLinks 9/17/16

September 17th, 2016

490 and Inner Loop Progress [PHOTO: Rochester Democrat and Chronicle 5/26/57]
By Matthew Denker

Don’t Call it a Loop

The City announcedexternal link the Inner Loop RFP winners. The three proposals that won aren’t bad. No Great Wolf Lodge, at least. One of the sites is being held for a future RFP. Best of luck to all the winning proposals.

Read on for more of this week’s RocLinks…


Living on the Edge (Again)

The Rochester Fringe Festivalexternal link is happening now (9/15 – 9/24 to be exact)! It looks to be as good this year as ever, so be sure to check it out for me. Just a few days left.

Late, but Wired

Coffee, amirite? I completely missed this a few weeks ago, but Rochesteriat recommendsexternal link a formidable list of coffee joints in the city. If you need to stay up late, try one, or maybe all of them.

Proposals out for Harambe Reprise

And finally, proposals for Parcel 5 at Midtown were due Friday. Hereexternal link are the four proposals submitted. I’ll try to write about all of them soon. No casino, though. I found that interesting. Also interesting was that Wilmorite didn’t bother to submit a formal proposal after their comical one pager earlier in the year. Go figure.

  1. Powers says:

    I don’t think that Rochesteriat link is correct.

  2. Fixed! Sorry about that.

  3. Ben says:

    I wish there were more renderings for the parcel 5 proposal. I’ve only seen one for the theater and one for the proposal by the Hart’s group. It’s difficult to envision how the structures will fit in with the rest of Midtown. I’m excited for the potential though and also relieved that there is no casino proposal. I’m actually okay with a casino in Rochester, just not there.

  4. Powers says:

    I haven’t seen a theater rendering (at least, not for Parcel 5). Do you have a link?

  5. Ben says:

    They also don’t list the building specs. I’m thinking these are all very preliminary renderings that would be adjusted if selected by the city council.

  6. Richard Rolwing says:

    Cool how in the above photo Monroe Avenue still ran all the way to Washington Square Park…

  7. Dan says:

    Every time I see a different rendering from Morgan Management it looks worse and worse. It looks modern and cool on paper, but it will look like garbage in person. Hopefully the city makes them revamp it like they did with the East Ave Wegman’s. It seems like they’re really phoning it in on this one.
