The ROC the Riverway Program will consolidate more than two dozen transformative projects along the Genesee River under a single concept to achieve synergy and leverage the value of Rochester's riverfront. The prospective projects include the completion of the Genesee Riverway Trail through the Center City and a redesign of Charles Carroll Plaza and Genesee Crossroads Park. The plan also envisions significant upgrades to major riverfront facilities, including the Blue Cross Arena at the War Memorial; the Joseph A. Floreano Rochester Riverside Convention Center; and the Rundel Memorial Library building.
Revitalizing the Genesee River corridor will help fuel the local economy, RTR will serve as a major asset in attracting new jobs and solidifying Rochester's identity as a vibrant waterfront community. Cities around the world have discovered the tremendous power of great public spaces, bicycle/pedestrian-focused infrastructure, and water-oriented development in attracting employees and the next generation workforce. Rochester is on its way.
