County closes on Kodak property for MCC downtown campus

Monroe County on Wednesday completed its purchase of Eastman Kodak Co. property on State Street for use as a downtown campus for Monroe Community College.

“For more than a decade, MCC students, faculty and staff have waited patiently for local leaders to work together and deliver a state-of-the-art downtown campus fitting of the college's world-class academic reputation,” Monroe County Executive Maggie Brooks said in a statement released late Wednesday afternoon.

“Today we reached another milestone in that long journey when Monroe County, acting as the College's primary government sponsor, completed the purchase of MCC's future State Street home.”

The purchase received unanimous support from the SUNY board of trustees and was authorized by the Monroe County Legislature in February for nearly $3 million.

“Finalizing this sale puts us one step closer to transforming our temporary presence downtown into a permanent one,” MCC President Anne Kress said.

The process of securing architectural services for the design of the new campus is under way, officials said.

The college hopes to occupy the building in 2017.
