Edgewater Resources has presented new design concepts for the Port of Rochester project. In a written update, Greg Weykamp, president of Edgewater, says that the design is still a work in progress and is only meant to study the form of the building.
"It does not represent the final materials selection, but rather is meant to study how the program elements in the building fit together and create the shape of the building," he says.
The port project includes a 10-story hotel, condos, and townhouses. But the project faces opposition from some Charlotte residents who says that the development would be too large, block water views, take away parking, and privatize the port.
Over the next few months, Weykamp says, Edgewater will work to incorporate comments from the City of Rochester's Project Review Committee, refine building components, and continue to work on the overall shape of the building.
"Once that is resolved, we will go into greater detail on the materials, finishes, and final details that will bring the Upstate New York waterfront architectural style to life," he says.
