200 construction jobs and 40 permanent jobs will be realized when the $18.7 million project at The Flats at Brooks Landing is completed in 2014. Groundbreaking took place recently on what’s being billed as the most recent revitalization project in Rochester, with about $45 Million invested so far.
The job calls for a 12-story building at Brooks Avenue and Genesee Street to house 170 University of Rochester students on 10 upper floors, with a 5,000-square-foot restaurant on the first floor.
The County of Monroe Industrial Development Agency approved tax breaks of $3.7 million for the developer in March 2012. The projected benefit to the community comes in at $9.9 million.
