Riverview Site

This 1.5-acre site is located along the Genesee River and Mt. Hope Avenue in the thriving South Wedge neighborhood, down the road from the University of Rochester campus and Strong Memorial Hospital. It is also minutes from downtown Rochester. The site is amid a park setting and benefits from thousands of cars traveling by the site every day. These tremendous assets aim to outweigh the challenges of the site’s environmental and geotechnical conditions.

The goals for the redevelopment of this site are to activate the Mt. Hope corridor and waterfront with residences and businesses and include destination/tourism-oriented infrastructure and facilities for the community and visitors.

If you are interested in this site, please submit an Expression of Interest. Most City-owned properties are sold through a process that starts with a Request for Proposal (RFP). For a list of current RFPs, and to learn more about the RFP process, click HERE.
