NYSEDC's 900 members work to build vibrant, diverse, and sustainable communities throughout New York State.
Midtown Rising/Windstream Offices
Midtown Rising is positioning Rochester, New York for its future by boldly shaping the rebirth of the downtown core through major public and private investment, job creation, and infrastructure development. This $122 million redevelopment of the 9-acre former Midtown Plaza, located at the heart of the Center City, into a mixed-use focal point will attract a critical mass of residents and 24/7 amenities that contribute to a vibrant live-work environment.
The $19MM Windstream project is the first private development to take hold on the Midtown Rising site. The shell of the former Seneca Building was preserved during the now-complete demolition of the six (6) Midtown Plaza structures. The Pike Development Company will develop and own the 109,000 square foot, three-story structure.
