The Irondequoit Town Planning Board heard from a local businessman at a meeting Monday night about his plans for redevelopment at Union Park.
Local developer Mike Nolan hopes to redevelop parts of Union Park, Titus Avenue, and Stranahan Park, into a seven building, two to three story mixed use property. The I-Square project will total about 87,000 square feet. Town residents say they welcome the project.
"I think the biggest reason that people are very excited about this is because for years there has always been the threat of more big boxes going in, like CVS, Aldi, and we got the Dunkin' Donuts and the Rite-Aid and all these individual big boxes that you can get in any town you go. Anywhere you go it's all the same stuff," said Lynn Zicari, town resident.
Nolan is hoping for this to become an urban shopping and gathering destination.
