RFP - Former Subway Tunnel, Rochester, New York

About the Project

This offering represents a development opportunity in which the City intends to license a portion of the former subway tunnel (the “Site”) to be developed in a manner which addresses the growing public parking needs of the Center City. The development of the Site for use as a public parking facility will benefit adjacent businesses and the emerging residential market.  

The Site is approximately 20 feet below the road surface of West Broad Street. The selected developer will need to create multiple access points for ingress/egress of vehicles as well as pedestrian access and must also have a strong understanding of the steps involved, current building code, the Center City Masterplan and the agencies in which coordination will be required.
