Justice rules in favor of Monroe Voiture developer

A plan to renovate the Monroe Voiture building at 933 University Ave. can proceed after state Supreme Court Justice Thomas Stander ruled May 7 on four Article 78 proceedings brought by the George Eastman House.

Morgan Management will be renovating the 1923 Voiture building, which is the last veteran’s post in the city and is adjacent to the Eastman House property. The building is located at 933 University Ave., adjacent to the Eastman House property.

In addition to renovation of the Voiture building, Morgan Management plans to build a luxury 99-unit apartment building on the site.

“This is a great day for the more than a dozen veterans groups of Rochester who have come to call Monroe Voiture home,” said Paul Ciminelli, an Army veteran and attorney for the veterans.

The city Preservation Board and Planning Commission had approved plans for the project.
