Rochester is its own special place. It spawned the world-renowned Mayo Clinic, home to those leading the way in life science discoveries and health care innovations. It’s the place people go to get better. Where developers are building an epicenter fueled by economic boom and dramatic growth. Where entrepreneur comes to find their place and discover the next big thing. Destination Medical Center puts Rochester in the middle of it all.
Can you name the six sub-districts that make up DMC district? Do you know what the community is saying about transportation? Do you know who is behind the growing entrepreneurial spirit in Rochester?
The answers to these questions and more are available on the newly redesigned DMC website. Enhancements were made to ensure that the site, like Rochester itself, stays fresh but functional, and that its visitors can easily access the latest information about DMC regardless of the device they are using.
DMC is in the middle of everywhere – and these nine concepts clearly represent the ideals that constitute the DMC brand. More importantly, they provide a platform with which to share stories about the drivers behind the DMC initiative and how public and private partners and community members are contributing to the DMC vision.
The DMC vision is not one that can be accomplished alone – or overnight. But with the advancements that took place on the DMC Development Plan over the past year, Rochester is well on its way to becoming a premier global medical destination.
It doesn’t take an urban planner to recognize the qualities it takes for a city to be successful. DMC is in the middle of it all: growth, investment, culture, community, innovation… the list goes on. And Rochester is hitting the mark on each attribute, ensuring 2017 will be another year of success.
Growth: A map on the DMC website highlights the fourteen projects currently in various stages of development in the DMC district, including the Alatus Development Project in St Marys Place (#14), the Titan-OPUS Project in Discovery Square (#3), and the Lofts at Mayo Park in the downtown Waterfront (#9), just to name a few.
Investment: Private investment gained significant momentum during 2016 that put DMC on course to reach the $200 million threshold that unlocks $585 million in public funds spanning over 20 years.
