I agree I wish they'd redo the entire outside. Those little windows are hideous. I wish somehow they could incorporate the look of the new development going on behind it along the river.

The city of Rochester has sent out a second RFP to build above the new ramp being built behind the Titan/Harbor Bay Hilton Hotel. This time the city is asking for proposals where at least half of the units be affordable. It sounds like several developers are interested in this RFP,
Last month, Assistant City Administrator Terry Spaeth said developers have expressed interest in revisiting the issue

North Rock Real Estate, who's also proposing the 6 story apartment project along 1st Avenue, is proposing a 6 story, 109 room Marriott at the intersection of Second Street and Sixth Avenue SW. The lot in the NW corner of the intersection is currently vacant.

Though the site is within the Destination Medical Center area, the developers say they have no plans to ask for DMC funding or tax-increment funding from the city.

The proposal calls for two floors of underground parking with 88 stalls, which developers say is a higher ratio of parking stalls to rooms than is offered at any other downtown hotel.

EKN received final approval for the Hyatt House: "groundbreaking could be just weeks away".

Hat tip to EKN, they've have the Holiday Inn redevelopment in progress, the Hyatt House starting soon and, from the looks of it, the hotel at Virgil's could be moving forward because they've fenced off the area:

The Hyatt House is significantly different from earlier presentations and appears to be about 2 stories shorter as well. Hope it doesn't change further. It will be nice to see the Virgil's site redeveloped. Hoping with both hotel and residential it might be a substantial project.

Are there any 16 story buildings going up in Rochester right now?

i think the closest to that height currently going up is the 13 story project by St. Mary's Hospital. https://finance-commerce.com/2016/08/bo ... y-project/
