RocLinks 3/7/15

This article was scraped from Rochester Subway. This is a blog about Rochester history and urbanism has not been published since 2017. The current owners are now publishing link spam which made me want to preserve this history.. The original article was published March 07, 2015 and can be found here.

From local development to just plain news of the weird, here are your RocLinks for this past week...

. I know I am     sometimes hard on Charlotte    , but Mr. Dominic's has been a fixture in town for over 40 years. He will be missed.

Shopping Update!

BENRUS, a military-themed lifestyle brand (ok...) has opened     its first retail store

here in Rochester. Check it out over in the Culver Road Armory.

. They would probably have been on the list longer had it been started more than 18 years ago.

Flying Under the Radar

And finally, evading notice by just about anyone, the zoning board is     reviewing a variance

(PDF) this month for a 3-story, 60 unit apartment building on Monroe Ave at Union. The property is owned by Buckingham. If anyone has any details about this, I'd love to hear them.    * * *
