UR contracts Taylor for College Town admin building

Rochester Business Journal
July 29, 2014

R-J Taylor General Contractors Inc.—which does business as Taylor, the Builders—was awarded a $2.6 million construction contract for the University of Rochester’s 45,000-square-foot administrative office building at College Town in Rochester.

The university occupancy will be split between two floors for designated programs at the development, the firm said.

Taylor is working with Rochester-based LaBella Associates P.C.  The property is managed by a partnership called CT Rochester involving Fairmount Properties LLC and Gilbane Development Co. Construction work is currently underway, with a project completion date slated for October.

"Taylor is excited to increase our involvement with this monumental project for the neighborhood," President Karl Schuler said in a statement.

Taylor is already responsible for the construction of two buildings for the new mixed-use office and retail development along Mt. Hope Avenue, which includes construction of a main four-story, roughly 220,000-square-foot residential/retail building, featuring an underground parking garage, a two-story Barnes & Noble Bookstore, restaurants and shops; and a three-story, 70,000-square-foot residential/retail building, featuring street-level shops and restaurants.
