UR, Midtown Tower get millions in funding

Rochester Business Journal

The University of Rochester’s Health Sciences Center for Computational Innovation will get $5 million in state funding for improvements, and the Midtown Tower redevelopment will get $4 million to help with construction costs, officials announced Monday.

The funding for both projects is among $22.3 million approved for 11 projects statewide by the Empire State Development Corp., officials said. The grants come through the state’s regional economic development councils.

The $5 million for the health sciences center will help pay for improvements to the facility and the installation of super-computing software at the school’s off-campus data center and on-campus visualization center, officials said.

The $4 million will go to developers Laurence Glazer and Robert Morgan for the $57.7 million conversion of the Midtown Tower to mixed use.
