29 Perrin Street before and after redevelopment

"We look to redevelop properties that are underdeveloped or deteriorating and 29 Perrin Street needs the work."
-- Executive Director

About the Project
The Fairport Urban Renewal Agency acquired this deteriorating property and requested redevelopment proposals in 2010. A local developer purchased the property, demolished the existing building and redeveloped the site into 5 luxury apartments, which were leased out upon opening in September 2012.

This project provides first-class housing in close proximity to the business district and is in walking distance to Village Landing and Main Street shopping opportunities as well as Erie Canal recreational activities.

About Urban Renewal Agency Assistance
The Fairport Urban Renewal Agency supported this project with a $250,000 low-interest loan. The total project cost is estimated at $850,000.

  Sterling West MIXED-USE REDEVELOPMENT: 32-36 West Avenue    
. . . . .
It's hard to believe that this project began life as a façade improvement! It evolved into an all-new mixed-use building that brings new residential and commercial life to the heart of the Village.

About the Project
This project began as a simple façade improvement project in 2004, but resulted in the demolition of 2 buildings and the construction of what has become a signature project in the heart of the Village.

Features of this mixed-use redevelopment project in the core of the Fairport business and canal district include 11 residential units with 4 commercial spaces on the first floor and significant public investment in the nearby Kennelley Park and a pedestrian promenade.

About Urban Renewal Agency Assistance
The Fairport Urban Renewal Agency supported this project with a $300,000 low-interest loan and a façade grant. The total project cost is close to $1,200,000.
