Three Heads Brewery & Tasting Room Planned for Neighborhood Of The Arts

Tuesday, January 20th, 2015

FSI Development of Rochester plans to build a brewery and tasting room on the empty lot at 186 Atlantic Ave. for lease to Three Heads Brewing.
By Mike Governale

You may have heard FSI Development of Rochester has purchased the empty lot at 186 Atlantic Ave external link (a.k.a. The Gleason Lot). Here at RocSubway we’ve fantasized about filling in this empty lot for quite some time. And although it’s not our original vision, the actual plan may be even better than how we dreamed it – primarily because it involves a local brew.

FSI is planning to build a brewery and tasting room on the southeast corner of the site to lease to Three Heads Brewery external link of Honeoye Falls. Damn, why didn’t we think of this…

Development Update… 179 Atlantic Avenue

Monday, December 8th, 2014

179 Atlantic Avenue has been completely overhauled inside and out. The building is nearing completion and almost ready for occupants sometime around the new year. [PHOTO: Steve Vogt]
By Steve Vogt

There’s tons of development happening all over the city of Rochester. In addition to the bigger ones, I thought I’d keep you updated on some of the smaller projects that are less spoken about.

179 Atlantic Avenue has been completely overhauled inside and out. The building is nearing completion and will be ready for occupants sometime around the new year…

Filling In: Charlotte Street

Thursday, November 13th, 2014

Charlotte Street, Rochester NY. [PHOTO: Google]
By Matthew Denker

It’s kind of amazing we haven’t looked at Charlotte Street external link already, but better late than never. Also, the RFP from the city is out, so there’s that. You can read the details here external link. Let’s just say the city is much more open minded about this proposal than the one for Midtown Parcel 5.

This proposal, in case you’re curious, is due December 5th. It’s going to be a busy few weeks for you if you’re trying to submit for this and Site 5

Rochester Subway Tunnel To Be Sealed Off By Luxury Apartments

Monday, September 8th, 2014

This proposed luxury apartment complex by Morgan Management could permanently close off one of the last remaining entry points to Rochester's old subway tunnel. [IMAGE: Morgan Management]
By Mike Governale

Several years ago the west end of Rochester’s abandoned subway tunnel was filled as part of the Broad Street Improvement Project. Now a planned downtown development could permanently close off one of the last remaining entry points to Rochester’s old subway tunnel. Morgan Management is waiting for approvals to build a five-story luxury apartment complex at Court Street and South Avenue, right smack on top of the subway’s east entrance and the former site of the Court Street subway platform…

Double Jeopardy for Historic Rochester Church

Monday, July 14th, 2014

The Zoning Board will decide AGAIN whether or not to allow the former Westminster Presbyterian Church at 660 West Main Street to be demolished. [PHOTO: RochesterSubway.com]
“Double Jeopardy” wasn’t invented by Alex Trebek. It’s actually a procedural defense in our system of justice that forbids a defendant from being tried more than once for the same (or similar) charges. Unfortunately this rule doesn’t seem to apply with historic preservation in Rochester. Because the very same owner of this historic church at 660 West Main Street external link will, for a second time, ask the Zoning Board for permission to demolish the structure to make way for a discount store.

Dawn Noto is president of the Susan B. Anthony Neighborhood Association. She was concerned about the demolition plans in March of 2013 when the Zoning Board blocked them the first time. This time Dawn says the conditions are no different and the City should be working with the owner on a plan to rehab the church building instead of entertaining his plan for a second time…

Elusive Memories of Iola, Part 2

Friday, November 22nd, 2013

Children (patients) on the roof of Iola Tuberculosis Sanatorium (c.1939). That's Marilyn Casserino in the center. [PHOTO COURTESY OF: Marilyn Murphree]
Here’s an update to last Friday’s story about Marilyn Casserino, 79. Marilyn is the girl in the dark dress in the center of the photo above. This picture was taken c.1939 on the roof of the Children’s Building at Iola Tuberculosis Sanitorium where Marilyn was a patient, along with her mother Vivian.

Unfortunately, Marilyn’s mom passed away while at the hospital. Marilyn was just 6 at the time. Looking back at those days, she now wishes she could remember more – about her mom, and about this place where they were treated for well over a year.

For starters, she wanted to try and find out who the other girls in the photo were. Would you believe in less than one week we’ve now identified two of those girls…

A couple months ago we took a look inside the Iola tuberculosis hospital on Westfall Road. The buildings have since been demolished. But for Marilyn Casserino, 79, those photos triggered memories, and questions that will linger on…
