COMIDA OKs tax breaks for projects

Callfinity Inc. plans to build out 10,000 square feet of space at the former Rochester Button Factory on State Street, relocate its offices from Perinton and add 52 jobs over three years to its current work force of 34.

The provider of telecommunications systems was approved for sales-tax exemptions of $10,150 Tuesday by the County of Monroe Industrial Development Agency. The community benefit of the tax breaks will be $1.77 million, COMIDA representatives said.

The project cost is $300,000, officials said.

Also on Tuesday, University Sports Medicine was approved for property tax abatements of $348,375 as part of a $2.8 million construction of a 10,197-square-foot building on three acres in Penfield. The community benefit will be $551,862, COMIDA representatives said.

University Sports Medicine, a joint program of the University of Rochester Medical Center’s Department of Orthopedics and Strong Memorial Hospital, provides medical and surgical care for athletic injuries. The program will result in 11 jobs over three years, officials said.

Temple Building LLC was approved for breaks of $10,450 on sales taxes for the $400,000 renovation of the second and third floors of the Franklin Street structure. The project is the second phase of a $5.1 million overhaul.

The renovations will result in 10 studio/one bedroom lofts. The community benefit is projected to be $137,400.

ACM Medical Laboratory, a division of Unity Health Systems, was approved for $74,832 in exemptions as part of a $1 million hardware and software upgrade of its laboratory and billing systems. The community benefit is projected to be $87,492.

ACM, which employs 345 in Monroe County, plans to add four workers over three years.
