Affordable or Mixed Income Housing Units Above Parking Ramp #6

The project consists of the development of up to 10 residential floors to be constructed in the air rights of the easternmost bay of the Rochester Parking Ramp #6. Potentially, up to 40 parking stalls on the sixth level of the ramp may be available to the proposed development. The number and availability of stalls would need to be negotiated with the City of Rochester. The new structure will connect to the street level next to 1st Avenue SE, east of the railroad spur line. Provisions for vertical circulation and utility access to serve the future development have been incorporated into the current ramp design. The design of the building exterior must complement the aesthetics of Parking Ramp #6.

Site Information
Beam
  • For the commercial sector, we tend to register startup activities (new companies and new commercial projects) that bring diversification and high-impact opportunities to the area.
  • For the non-profit sector, we wish to shine light on all the organizations and services that otherwise labor under relative obscurity.
  • Our hope is that dmcbeam.org will encourage cross-sector collaborations and creative solutions.

While there are a number of registries in the community, dmcbeam.org's  distinct value is to pilot a database with a data structure and categorizations that answer the questions such as: What organizations or projects/programs in our community that have purported relevance with some of the over-arching focuses put forward by initiatives such as DMC, J2G and Health Improvements?

This database could be used as one of the ways to explore the capacities of the community. If you are someone on an exploratory journey to learn about the greater Rochester community. dmcbeam.org could be an interesting first step.

Definitions
The following defines the various project phases:
  1. Available - a product, program or service is in production
