Canandaigua City Council has given approval to a project that could mean big changes for the former Tom’s Mobile site.
The site has been subject to public discussion, extensive cleanup, and a city effort to see development on that prominent corner.
City Council voted 7-1 on Thursday – giving Christa Development the go ahead to work with Hunt EAS and CSD Housing LLC, to apply for approvals for its plan to receive the vacant lot, according to the Canandaigua Messenger.
The developer says the the goal for the site is a four-story commercial and residential building that extends downtown further toward Canandaigua Lake.
City Manager John Goodwin said the developer would have to get the typical land-use approvals, such as the Zoning Board of Appeals and/or City Planning Commission, that would be required with any proposed project, according to the Messenger.
“The public will have plenty of time to see the project … and weigh in on it,” Canandaigua Mayor Ellen Polimeni added.
