Auction of stalled hotel project along Canandaigua Lake delayed

There was going to be an auction today for the stalled Finger Lakes Resort & Hotel project along Canandaigua Lake.

However, it appears that has been postponed.

According to News10NBC, out of Rochester, the auction was supposed to take place at 10 am in front of the Ontario County Courthouse, at 27 N. Main Street in Canandaigua.

The auction was scheduled after the Batavia general contracting firm associated with the project filed a mechanic’s lien against the project in 2015.

Manning Squires Henning Co. Inc., had obtained a $3.6 million judgment of foreclosure and sale in September. Bob Murhpy, one of the project’s co-developers said that the judgment would be paid off and that the auction would not take place.

While it does not appear the judgment was paid off — it does appear as though a temporary agreement had been reached. David Genecco is a co-developer in the project, as well, and both said they’d be negotiating nearly $30 million in financing to complete the project.

Mayor Ellen Polimeni told the Canandaigua Messenger last month that the project being in the news was ‘very encouraging’.

Developers did note last year that work would resume in the spring.
