A plan for the former Toms Mobil site in Canandaigua is taking shape, with the proposal including a mix of retail, residential and commercial spaces.
The proposal, submitted by developer Edgemere Development, includes the construction of a four-story building with a mix of one- and two-bedroom apartments, as well as street-level retail and commercial spaces.
The project, which is still in the early stages of development, is intended to revitalize the area and bring new life to the site, which has been vacant for several years. The developer is also seeking a $3 million Restore NY grant to help fund the $20 million project.
The project also includes a public green space, a pedestrian walkway, and a community garden. The developer is also working with the town to address any potential traffic and parking issues.
The proposal will be reviewed by city boards, with public hearings expected to be held in the coming weeks. The developer hopes to break ground on the project by the end of the year, pending approval.
The Toms Mobil site is located on a prime location in Canandaigua, near Blue Heron Park and the Canandaigua fire station, and the project is expected to bring new economic opportunities to the area and provide much-needed affordable housing.
