The Property is owned by the City of Rochester and consists of approximately one-third of a larger garage known as the South Avenue Parking Garage. The subject of this RFP is the Stone Street Wing of the South Avenue Parking Garage. Construction of the entire South Avenue Parking Garage began in 1971 and it was opened for use in 1974. The entire South Avenue Parking Garage has approximately 1617 spaces and the Stone Street Wing (the portion being considered for sale) has 542 spaces. 

South Avenue Parking Garage and the Stone Street Wing both share one tax account number at this time. Prior to a conveyance, the portion being sold will be sub-divided to a separate and distinct tax account number.

The Stone Street Wing is subject to one existing parking agreement with the Hilton Garden Inn that will survive the sale of the property. The Agreement can be downloaded from the ‘Resources’ section below. The parking agreement should be read in its entirety because the conditions will be binding upon the future owner of the Stone Street Wing.
