Another Building Set To Be Torn Down in Downtown Rochester

As they say, the only constant is change, and downtown Rochester is set to change again with another building that’s set to be torn down.

So which one is it this time? Well, according to this Post-Bulletin story, it’s the Rosie Belle buildings, located in the 400 block of South Broadway, on the corner of 4th Street southwest.

The story notes that the buildings, which were purchased by the current owners back in 2008, were slated to become the sight of a multi-million dollar performing arts space. The sign on the buildings say the same thing. But that never happened.

And, now, if there IS a performing arts center headed to that location, it won’t be in the existing buildings, because they have a meeting with the wrecking ball coming up later this spring.

That’s because of significant “structural problems and public safety issues,” which has lead the city of Rochester to recommend tearing them down, according to the story.

It’s always a little sad to see some historic buildings come down isn’t it? The story said while these have been proudly standing along Broadway since 1878, it’ll only take between “5 to 10 days” to bring them down.

And, the story noted, that should happen by the end of May.
