City seeks proposals for Midtown Tower

Requests for proposals were issued Thursday for the potential sale and renovation of the Midtown Tower, city of Rochester officials said.
City officials are exploring possible uses for the building as part of the Midtown Plaza redevelopment project.
“This tower has a lot of potential and the right developer with the right vision could convert it into a commercially viable property,” Mayor Robert Duffy said in a statement.
It is also possible the tower cannot be salvaged, city officials said.
“We want to give our talented community of developers, architects and engineers the opportunity to look at this property to see what could be done with it,” Duffy said. “But at the end of the day, it might not be part of the final plan (for the site). We are simply doing our due diligence.”
The 207,000-square-foot, 17-story building sits on some 20,000 square feet at the soon-to-be demolished Midtown Plaza complex.
Informational meetings and tower presentations related to the requests for proposals are scheduled for 9 a.m. on Dec. 17 and Jan. 15, officials said. The tower will be open for inspection by developers until 2 p.m. following both meetings.
Proposals should be sent to the economic development department at City Hall before 5 p.m. on March 2.
