Three projects chosen for Inner Loop land 

Three projects have been chosen for the land that used to be the downtown Inner Loop. Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren will recommend proposals from: Home Leasing, Morgan/Christa, and a partnership of Strong museum, Indus Hospitality Group, and Konar Properties to City Council. 

Filling in of the eastern stretch of the loop should be finished by December 2017. Five parcels of developable land will be created in the mile stretch.
