Re: “More design concepts for the Port of Rochester

There are so many red flags on this project, so many issues.

If you look at the NYS audit of the failed ferry, the same "red flags" exist as they do for the current "Mistake-on-the-Lake" hotel/condos. Lack of community approval, shaky funding, and lack of marketing research. Edgewater says they have done marketing research, but the reality is that if they did, they would not even try to build it.

Their goal, we are sure, is to build it and sell it for a profit. It will eventually be all condos since there is no reason for that hotel.

Their intended condo customers -- twenty-somethings and retirees -- aren't interested in living in overpriced housing in an area that, like anywhere around any NY state lake, is dead and uncomfortable in the winter months -- November to May.

Any effective waterfront transformation is, above all, the experts say, centered on PUBLIC ACTIVITIES. Condos and a hotel don't do anything for the community. That target group wants CONVENIENCE to shopping and other amenities. That location does not provide it.

It is an abomination that the City of Rochester is selling PUBLIC land to a PRIVATE developer. It's a bad decision, just like the ferry was.

Add to ALL of that the fact of the shaky ground it's build on, placing any resident or visitor at risk, and this decision will make the failed fast ferry look like a good idea.

Re: “Marina may miss a season

The city needs to provide more details. Why wouldn't they be more transparent?
