Geva inks lease deal for housing near theater

Rochester Business Journal
July 22, 2014

Geva Theatre Center has signed a 10-year lease on space at 1 Woodbury Blvd., which officials say will be used to house the theater’s actors and artists.

The space is located 150 steps from Geva Theatre Center and contains space for 11 units ranging in size from 456 to 564 square feet. The redeveloped building will feature a loft-style design with exposed brick, soaring ceilings and windows, and access to a rooftop patio and garden, officials said.

The property was developed through a partnership with owner-investor Eduard Nakhamkin and developers Patrick Dutton and Luke Dutton, officials added.

Per its collective bargaining agreement, Geva must provide its actors with housing while they are in residence for the nine weeks of rehearsals and performances.

“Geva is the most attended regional theater in the (Northeast) outside of Manhattan, and a theater like Geva—a national level theater—needs artist housing to match its caliber of productions and performers,” said Tom Parrish, Geva’s executive director. “First-class artists deserve first-class housing. This new housing epitomizes five of Geva’s core values—a commitment to excellence, providing exceptional service to artists, collaboration, community engagement and work of a national standard.”
