A detailed vision for downtown 

Last week, the Partnership for Downtown Rochester released details of a proposed business improvement district for the center city. Backers say the BID is needed to boost revitalization efforts, but opposition remains.

Investment with an impact

A new apartment building in Rochester’s High Falls neighborhood represents a step toward industry equity for a Black family real estate business and for more affordable housing in the city.

What’s next for the Inner Loop North

The city of Rochester is starting the design phase of the Inner Loop North Transformation Project. The project will fill in a 1.5-mile stretch of the expressway, reconnecting downtown Rochester with the Public Market and the city’s Brown Square, High Falls, Upper Falls and Marketview Heights neighborhoods, and providing land for redevelopment.

Affordability in the suburbs

New affordable housing is coming to Perinton, where changing population demographics and housing demands have heightened the need for a mix of residences for different income levels.

A contested BID 

Plans for a business improvement district in downtown Rochester are moving into a new phase of community outreach, but winning over BID foes could be difficult.
