Rochester’s Department of Neighborhood Development has issued a request for proposal for the Valley Court Apartments in Southwest Rochester.
The department is seeking a qualified developer to construct market-rate housing on a 4.5-acre parcel on Genesee Street, which already includes three apartment buildings.
Proposals must include owner-occupant, market-rate residential housing. City officials believe the site is in an attractive location due to its proximity to the Genesee River, the University of Rochester/Strong Medical Center and Genesee Valley Park.
“The successful development of the Valley Court parcel will be a real shot in the arm for the 19th Ward and all of Southwest Rochester,” Mayor Robert J. Duffy said in a press release Tuesday.
