A new residential living option for downtown Rochester is in the planning stages with a 62-unit, 5-7 story building for the corner of Walnut Boulevard and First Street.
The 112 Walnut residence would be designed in a cantilevered building giving each floor different views of the the city. The bottom two floors would be for parking, and the four floors above would each have 14 apartments. A penthouse floor would be devoted to six apartments.
The city's planning commission is working with Joe Latozas and Joe Lochirco with Designhaus Architects on the project that is seen as a way to up the urban living aspect of downtown Rochester, which recently underwent a major reconstruction of Main Street.
