Rochester mayor reacts to Chesonis’ comments
With demolition of Midtown Plaza nearing its end, the top executive at Windstream Corp. was in Rochester last week for the first time, promising city officials a chance to make their case for moving Paetec Holding Corp. offices to the site.
Windstream president and CEO Jeffery Gardner was here Sept. 7, meeting with Mayor Thomas Richards as part of his visit.
The meeting came as deconstruction of the 8.5-acre site enters its final stages, with work expected to end as soon as early October, said project manager Martin Piecuch, senior construction manager in the Finger Lakes region for the Empire State Development Corp.
Backfilling and grading will be done by the end of November, Piecuch said, a few weeks later than originally scheduled. The entire project is $12 million under budget.
