ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — Work is underway for the first Downtown Revitalization Initiative project in Rochester: the Alta Vista build. According to signage at the build, it’s scheduled for completion by 2025.

This development is by the old St. Joseph’s Church landmark. It will be a 6-story, 76-unit mixed-income building on four vacant lots.

According to the City, “the project includes supportive housing units for survivors of domestic violence and space for the Landmark Society of Western New York.”

Work on the Main and Clinton DRI project is scheduled to start in February.

More on the News 8’s reporting on the DRI in late 2023:

$4 million was awarded to the buildings at East Main Street and Clinton Avenue, a well-known community eyesore. 10-12 market-rate apartments are slated to go here, and groundbreaking is expected in February.

A stone’s throw away on Division Street, the Edwards Building has quite a change planned.
The City listed the cost of the project as $36 million in their DRI application, to create 114 apartments, a parking lot with geothermal wells, and other “sustainable amenities.” The state gave 41 million for the project.

The city says work is scheduled to be underway sometime in 2024.

The Kresge building received $1 million for an estimated $12 million project. Good Luck and Jackrabbit Club were listed as partners on the application. A 28-room hotel is planned, with commercial tenants and a brewery on the ground floor.

The timeframe on the application is listed as the end of 2024. And right next door would be the commons, an outdoor common space, with demolition due to start by next summer.

Right by the historic St. Joseph’s church, the Alta Vista building got $1 million for a $32 million project, with 76 affordable units planned for the L-shaped building at the corner of Pleasant and Franklin.

The proposed timeline listed on the application for completion is in the summer of next year.
