The Landmark Society of Western New York today announced its 2020 Five to Revive – a list that identifies opportunities for targeted, strategic revitalization. The announcement was made at a virtual news conference from The Landmark Society headquarters in Warner Castle.

The List includes:

  • Clarissa Street Corridor
    City of Rochester, Monroe County
  • Williams Opera House
    Village of Attica, Wyoming County
  • 692 Joseph Avenue
    Future home of the Joseph Avenue Arts & Culture Alliance / Former Congregation B’Nai Israel

    City of Rochester, Monroe County
  • 67-89 Canal Street
    City of Rochester, Monroe County
  • The Neighborhood Hardware Store
    Throughout the region

This is the eighth year that we have announced the Five to Revive list to draw attention to key priorities for revitalization in western New York.  “The Landmark Society staff is dedicated to work collaboratively with owners, municipal officials, and developers to facilitate investment, foster rehabilitation, and  carry out our mission to protect the region’s unique architectural heritage,” said Wayne Goodman, Executive Director.

“In such revitalization projects that previously appeared on the list as the Eastman Dental Dispensary, Holley High School, Sampson Theatre, Perry Downtown Block, and Parrott Hall in Geneva, the Five to Revive initiative is proving to be very successful and continues to demonstrate that preservation and adaptive reuse are key strategies for revitalization in western New York,” said Tom Castelein, chair of The Landmark Society Five to Revive committee. “Our goal remains to return these important historic resources to places of prominence in their respective communities, as economic and social assets that spark even more investment and revitalization.”
