After a four-year hiatus while additional funds were sought, work has restarted on the Canandaigua Finger Lakes Resort.
Workers were seen pouring concrete this past week at the site on the northern shore of Canandaigua Lake that had become a shell of steel because financing had dried up.
Developer Bob Murphy said in late February that the project, on the site of the former Steamboat Landing, will be a game-changer for Ontario County, noting the development of the new Inn on the Lake just down Lakeshore Drive.
Mike Manikowski, who directs economic development for the county, said the two developments combined could generate $80 million in economic activity.
Canandaigua Finger Lakes Resort calls for 109 rooms under the Hilton Tapestry name. It also will include a restaurant and 44 condos. Murphy said his new hotel will also provide conference space of nearly 13,000 square feet that can accommodate 500-plus people.
