News Release - City Launches Site Promoting Potential Development Parcels

City of Rochester

News Release

(Monday, July 1, 2019) - Mayor Lovely A. Warren today unveiled a new web page that will help transform vacant real estate parcels into productive, job-producing development sites.

“This new web page is a great tool for developers to find prospective sites here in Rochester,” said Mayor Warren. “We hope to see these project sites transformed into job-producing industries, bustling businesses, or commercial development that cultivates safer and more vibrant neighborhoods throughout the city.”

The web page presents a map of prime developments sites on a geographic information system (GIS), which details general site data. This page will help purchasers identify multi-acre City-owned real estate that is already zoned for development.

The page also provides information such as site size, street level and aerial photographs, zoning information, appraised value, environmental reports and project information of any nearby planned developments. In addition, there are links to the City’s mapping and tax accounting pages and contact information for follow-up questions.

The page can be viewed at:
