WHITNEY TOWN CENTER RIBBON CUTTING
Newest Shopping Plaza on the Eastside Celebrates Grand Opening
Fairport, N.Y., May 18, 2017 – On Thursday (today), principals from Whitney Town Center were joined by Town and County Officials, State Representatives, local business owners and residents to celebrate the official Ribbon Cutting and Grand Opening of Whitney Town Center. Located at 650 Whitney Road in Fairport, the site that was previously home to Rochester Telephone, Whitney Town Center has revitalized the building and site into a vibrant plaza that includes national and regional tenants. Tenants of Whitney Town Center include: Pizza Chef, Zen Nail Spa II, Sew Creative, and I Love Kickboxing.
“In Fairport, we’re creating jobs and building a community friendly environment that allows businesses to grow and thrive,” said partner and developer Peter Landers of Landers Management. “This development as a whole, along with The Legends at Whitney, represents millions of dollars in private investment in Fairport, new jobs created, and the revitalization of a site located in a high traffic area near the center of the Town. Thank you to Robert Morgan, Jim Taylor, and Karl Schuler for their efforts on this project and for working closely with the Town of Perinton to ensure that this development met the needs of the neighborhood.”
The ceremony will mark the completion of the multi-million renovation to the former Rochester Telephone building. Without any significant renovations for several decades, the building and site had become rundown and was sorely in need of a facelift. After a near complete “gut” of the interior and a new roof, facade, windows, and canopies, the building is nearing capacity with locally owned businesses featuring custom build-outs.
