Town Center Development is a 15-acre business center site on the southeast corner of Latta Road (NYS Route 18) and Long Pond Road (County Road 136) in the Town of Greece. LLD approached Marathon to pursue overall concept and subdivision approval for the project. Phase 1 of the development including a 22,000-sf medical office building for the University of Rochester and a Burger King restaurant. A total of 6 additional development parcels were approved as part of the overall concept planning with a mix of uses contemplated throughout the site.
Planning completed by Marathon as part of the approval process included a traffic study with a new main entrance and future roadway improvements coordinated with the New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT) to Latta Road. This entrance is part of the Greece Center Drive private roadway that serves both the plaza as well as the senior living facility to the east. Several existing driveways were abandoned in close proximity to the Latta/Long Pond intersection as part of the project to address safety concerns. Stormwater management was also designed to address the entirety of the project in the initial phase, as well as utility extensions ensuring that future development can be seamlessly integrated with minimal disruption to the businesses in the plaza.
The developer is currently pursuing approvals for the frontage lots on the northeast portion of the site fronting on Latta Road. A Royal Car Wash and Starbucks are slated to break ground late in 2022. This next phase of development is predicated on the installation of a left turn lane at the previously constructed Greece Center Drive entrance to Latta Road. Marathon is working closely with their traffic consultant, SRF Associates, and NYSDOT on permitting and design on these improvements. Look for more updates as Phase 2 completes in the spring of 2023!
