Mission

  • To create a center of activity that helps to benefit our downtown core in the immediate and long-term future as we provide amenities to the towering buildings that surround us that many are now calling home.
  • To create a modular and flexible gathering place for residents and visitors in a central downtown public square built to human-scale for people to enjoy, relax, play, and engage with a dynamic array of events, restaurants, and retail.

Goals

We want to continue the Midtown tradition of shared versus exclusive space. Our plan is to do this through the innovation of public space – by creating a mixed use urban space that integrates greenspace with a small business core, entertainment district, and festival site.  featured in pop-up and micro-retail locations. We desire a heavy emphasis on prepared food options for breakfast, lunch, and dinner with the potential of nightlife bolstered by beer gardens and live music.  We believe our project represents the most flexible and adaptable approach for Parcel 5 with minimal investment and maximum results (output) (service) for the community. We are formally submitting a proposal to the City of Rochester by September 8th 2016.

Parks and squares can sometimes be viewed as a frivolity, an unnecessary drain on resources or use of precious urban space. Nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, parks and squares reward investment disproportionately. If developed as “places” and planned around major public destinations, they build local economies, civic pride, social connection, and human happiness — all precious commodities in an increasingly congested urban landscape.
