The City of Rochester, Division of Environmental Quality is conducting a Phase II Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) and Geotechnical Study at two (2) adjacent properties located in the City of Rochester (Site Plan). The two sites of interest are currently owned by New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT). Uhlen Place and Karges Place are connecting local roads and separate the two sites. Site 1 consists of approximately 2 acres of vacant land and Site 2 is approximately 0.6 acres of vacant land located south of interstate 490 between Clinton Avenue and South Goodman Street.
Site 1has been developed since the early 1900’s when it was occupied by the Sherwood Shoe Company shoe factory. Since that time it has also been occupied by several other industrial and commercial tenants, including but not limited to laundries, plastic products, laboratory supplies, tool manufacturing, gear manufacturing, machine shops, upholsterers, photography, printing, lamps and lampshade manufacturing, electrical sales, electrical testing of instruments, and paint sales.
Site 2has been developed since the 1890’s when it consisted of multiple parcels including: 643, 645, 649, 651, 653, 655, 663, and 665 South Goodman Street and 9, 11, 15, 17, and 19 Karges Place. The Karges Place parcels were residential from 1905 through 1962. The South Goodman Street parcels were residential from 1905 through 1967 or 1972, at which time the NYSDOT obtained title of the property.
