The Alexander Park site is situated on the Northern side of a historical hospital building, and acts as an entry into an older neighborhood near the inner loop of downtown Rochester. Adjacent to an active pedestrian route, the site has opportunities to engage in commercial activity, as well as actively engage the surrounding neighborhoods in a positive way.
The client needed retail, office, and residential space to be situated on the site. The parking for residential units had to be on site, however retail parking was assumed to be off site. Considerations had to be made for delivery of goods and circulation for motor vehicles, as well as recreation areas.
