Mayor Lovely Warren announce TODAY that a performing arts center will be built on 'Parcel 5' at Midtown in downtown Rochester.
It will feature housing, retail shops, restaurants and additional parking.
It is estimated to cost $130 million. Last month, Paychex founder Tom Golisano pledged $25 million to the performing arts center in Rochester.
The performing arts center will have about 3,000 seats. A residential tower is also being planned with 150 rental units, along with retail shops and restaurants.
They are estimating an estimated 360,000 people being brought downtown annually with a projected $18.5 million in ticket sales.
