Docks for resort site in Canandaigua?

With renewed construction on the Canandaigua Finger Lakes Resort comes a renewed request — the installation of boat slips to serve residents of the condominium portion of the project.

Canandaigua City Council’s planned unit development committee is scheduled to consider the request at its meeting Thursday night.

Developer Robert Murphy is asking for permission to extend the Canandaigua Lady dock and create 32 slips that would be owned and maintained by the condominium association.

Two years ago a City Council committee denied a similar request, which developers said then could “kill the project.”

But Murphy said Tuesday that seven of 10 people who have expressed an interest in the condos — which would go for an average of $700,000 — also want a dock.

“It will hamper sales tremendously if we don’t get them,” Murphy said.

Work on the five-story, 109-room Hilton Tapestry brand hotel and 44-condo project resumed earlier in the year, after construction had stalled in summer 2015. The plan for the resort also calls for the construction of a restaurant, meeting and conference facilities, spa and 293-space parking ramp.
