$700,000 Investment to Result in Mixed-Use Space


HORNELL — A plaza that serves the retail needs of many of the City of Hornell’s Southside residents will see new investment in the coming year, after the City’s Planning and Development Committee heard plans for a mixed-use building on Monday.

Developers Hornell RRC have proposed a new 1,800 square foot building to be located at 18 Park Drive, just beyond the plaza and on the back side of the Tractor Supply location.

The building will be mixed use, a two-story building featuring two commercial spaces on the first floor and three, one-bedroom apartments on the second floor.

Chair of the Committee John Carbone said that the plan represents approximately $700,000 in private investment.

The developers have not requested any financial assistance from the city for the project.

“They have a long history of doing these kinds of projects, especially in Honeoye Falls,” said Mayor John Buckley. “This is a commentary on where we are as a city … Hornell is growing.”

The committee unanimously approved the recommendation and artist renderings were shared with the full council.
