RocLinks 9/3/16

September 3rd, 2016

Excerpt of full page ad showing the soon to be completed Lincoln Tower downtown [PHOTO: Rochester Democrat & Chronicle 1/25/1970]
By Matthew Denker

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

Strong Markets

Its seems Tower280 hasn’t had any troubleexternal link finding tenants. Nor have other high end buildings. This is promising for the longer term success of many of the buildings coming online in the next year.

The train, boss!

Seisenbacher Rail Interiors Inc. is comingexternal link to town. They’ll be manufacturing over on Humboldt St next to (get this) the train tracks. At a mere $12,000 per job in subsidy, this is quite likely to pay off. Even if every job was only for $40,000 (let’s call it an average), the state should be getting about $23,000 per employee in taxes. Bravo.

The Best(s)

It’s thatexternal link time of year again when we all get to vote on Rochester’s Best(s). Go to town, and you know, put in a good word for my favorites while you’re at it.

I’ll bid $1

And finally, the Price is Right hit up Rochesterexternal link for a recent prize. I’m flattered! Although they should maybe do some Rochester stuff too next time, and not just drive to Hilton.

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. AmyRyb says:

    Any idea what the building behind Chase Tower (to the left) is supposed to be?

  2. Chris Stone says:

    I’m assuming that’s the existing Alliance Building, it’s the right location and size, just re-skinned to coordinate with the new tower.

  3. Richard Long says:

    And it would only take 7 or so years for geniuses to figure out the white marble from Italy couldn’t hold up to Rochester Winters. Then the marble would get removed and we had a white plywood tower for a while while more geniuses figured out what to cover the @#%^&*$ tower with that wouldn’t fall onto the sidewalks below.
