is scheduled to vote on legislation to sell the first chunk of land to Edgewater Resources for redevelopment of the Port of Rochester
. The project has faced opposition throughout, with some Charlotte residents saying that Edgewater's plans are too dramatic for the port area.
Council will consider the sale of 1.26 acres of the northern portion of 4752 Lake Avenue to Edgewater for $176,239. The first phase of the project includes a 52-room boutique hotel, 18 condominiums, spa, and commercial space.
Council will also consider granting Edgewater a five-year purchase option for approximately 1.4 acres of the southern portion of 4752 Lake Avenue. The sale of the property would have to be approved by City Council.
A marina is also under construction at the Port of Rochester, although the project needs a new developer. The city and the marina's original developer mutually agreed, the city said, to find a new developer for the rest of the marina project.
