Anthony J. Costello & Son (Spencer) Development LLC, a local real estate development group, is proposing the redevelopment of the approximately 45 acre campus of the former Monroe County Tuberculosis (Iola) Sanatorium located at the southeast corner of Westfall and East Henrietta Roads in the City of Rochester. The CityGate project will include over 550,000 square feet of new construction development that includes a mix of retail, commercial, hospitality and residential uses consisting of: a 150-room hotel, a 300-unit apartment complex (including 20 affordable housing apartments), approximately 78,000 square feet of retail store space on 8-10 building pads and approximately 100,000 square feet of office/retail space located on the first floors of canal front mixed use buildings and a “street of shops”, together with improvements to the open spaces and the canal, a 560-vehicle parking garage and an RGRTA Transit Center. The $101 Million project is projected to create 255 new FTEs over the next three years. Extensive site and infrastructure improvements required by the project create economic feasibility issues. Thus, the City of Rochester has asked COMIDA to consider a custom abatement for the project.
