There are plans to renovate the Cadillac Hotel in Rochester. City officials say the 90 year old building could become part of a downtown renaissance.
Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren is asking City Council to give its backing for using a half-million dollars in state money for the project. A private developer, who has not been named yet, is proposing a nearly $8 million project to turn that building on Chestnut Street into apartments.
The city's Deputy Commissioner of Neighborhood and Business Development, Kate Washington, says more than 50 apartments would be developed.
