The Inner Loop North Infill Project in Rochester is one of this year's Five to Revive.

The Landmark Society of Western New York today announced its 2021 Five to Revive – a list that identifies opportunities for targeted, strategic revitalization. The announcement was made at a news conference this morning on Scio Street adjacent to the Inner Loop.

The List includes:

Inner Loop North Infill Project
City of Rochester, Monroe County

St. Michael’s Church and Surrounding Neighborhood
City of Rochester, Monroe County

Alasa Farms
Town of Sodus, Wayne County

Phelps Hotel
Village of Phelps, Ontario County

Epworth Hall at Silver Lake Institute
Town of Castile, Wyoming County

This is the ninth year that The Landmark Society of Western New York is announcing the Five to Revive list to draw attention to key priorities for revitalization in western New York.  “The heart of preservation is community revitalization,” said Wayne Goodman, Executive Director. “In 2013, we launched the Five to Revive program, to call attention to five properties in Western New York that are in need of investment. Whether buildings, landscapes, or structures, they are significant historic properties whose rehabilitations can become catalytic projects for the neighborhoods and communities that surround them. The ultimate goal is to return these important historic resources to a place of prominence in their respective communities, as economic and social assets that spark even more investment and revitalization.”

“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 Tom Castelein, chair of The Landmark Society Five to Revive committee. “That has proven to be the key to success in such resources as Holley High School, the former Wollensak Optical Company in Rochester, the Clarissa Street Corridor in Rochester and the encouragement of interest in the traditional trades.”
