Since Rochester City Lines stopped their commuter route from Le Roy and Grand Meadow to Rochester in 2014, the demand has not stopped. Le Roy has tried a couple options, but it thinks their new bus service is the key to meeting that demand.
“It was a nice grassroots effort – It just proves you only need a handful of people,” said Axel Gumbel who is part of Le Roy’s Economic Development Authority.
More signs of development in DMC’s Downtown Waterfront sub-district have taken shape. The Lofts at Mayo Park, a 29-unit housing development, will soon offer new housing options – short- and long-term, furnished and unfurnished – to visitors and residents of Rochester.
DMC Corporation board members, DMC Economic Development Agency (EDA) staff, and city leaders were given a tour of the site in late October.
There’s a new addition to DMC’s Waterfront District with the construction of a new housing option downtown. The Lofts at Mayo Park is a 29-unit housing complex. It will offer both short and long-term leasing for people visiting for health care and residents of Rochester.
Tuesday, DMCC board members and city leaders were given a tour of the site. It’s a $9.5 million project. The real-estate trust behind the building said DMC didn’t dictate the process but instead approved what was done.
Start-up companies, researchers and investors came together in Rochester Tuesday to demonstrate what they would bring to Destination Medical Center.
Investors and Innovators was a private event, with participants pitching their company’s value and economical place in the future plans and construction of DMC.
Attendees included health related companies with focuses such as diabetes care and spine therapy. Also presenting was the entrepreneurial hub, Collider, which is already established in Rochester.
It’s these events bringing innovative minds together on one platform that DMC says is key to Rochester’s growth over the next 10 years.
A hub for local entrepreneurs opened its doors Monday in Downtown Rochester. “Collider Core” gives novice and seasoned entrepreneurs a place to work and connect with each other. There are conference rooms, dedicated workspaces and help finding community resources to launch their business.
“I think its super important that what’s happening with DMC we have these sort of hubs to engage the entrepreneurial community in fact that’s why we called it Collider, we wanted these sort of random collisions to happen with people to get them successful,” Community Manager Jamie Sundsbak explains.
The business incubator is already looking to the future and aims to fill space in the DMC’s Discovery Square going forward.
