Inner Loop candidates named 

In response to a Freedom of Information request, the City of Rochester released the names of the organizations vying to develop a filled-in portion of the Inner Loop last week.

The companies are: Home Leasing Services; the Morgan-Christa development team; DHD Ventures; and Strong museum/Indus Hospitality Group/Konar Properties.

The city has not released any specifics of the proposals.

The organizations have proven track records in Rochester. Home Leasing is redeveloping the former Eastman Dental Dispensary into a senior living community and is also behind a controversial housing project in the East Main, Mustard, and Atlantic Avenue neighborhood.

Morgan Management, Christa Construction, and DHD Ventures are well-known developers in the Rochester-Monroe County area. DHD has come on the scene in a big way with the development of housing projects including 111 on East and the Button Lofts.

And rumors have been circulating for some time about a possible Strong museum expansion. Strong representatives are tight-lipped on the idea, but the city's invitation to solicit development proposals for the Inner Loop land was clearly written with the museum in mind, given the wording.

About six acres or approximately one mile of land is available for development on the former Inner Loop. A city spokesperson said that nothing more will happen with the proposals until maybe the end of the year.
