PathStone and Geva to build new building on Monroe Avenue

Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren has recommended that the nonprofit organization PathStone build on the last available part of the Inner Loop redevelopment near Monroe Avenue and Chestnut Street. The proposed building has its first tenant: Geva.   

The theater’s artistic director, Mark Cuddy, said they’re out of space at their current location and want to use 5,900 square feet of the building to expand.

“We’ll have year-round classes, year-round engagement, community events, it’s an opportunity for us for more participation,” said Cuddy.

The plan for the four-story building also includes 54 units of affordable housing and commercial space.

CJS Architects are the architects on the project.

City Council must approve PathStone’s purchase of the land. If all goes well, the project will be finished in about two-and-a-half years.
