ROC the Riverway

ROC the Riverway has been nominated for the Community Design Center’s 9th annual Reshaping Rochester Awards for Urban Innovation and Activism. National architecture, engineering and planning firm Bergmann is providing planning and design services for the City of Rochester as it implements the more than two dozen projects that comprise the ROC the Riverway initiative.

The Reshaping Rochester Awards recognize exemplary projects and initiatives in the nine-county Finger Lakes region that make a positive impact on people, neighborhoods, and communities. ROC the Riverway has been selected by the public among five nominees in the large projects (budget over $5 million) category for its focus on the Genesee River Corridor as a key element in rejuvenating the City of Rochester.

“Urban revitalization is what ROC the Riverway is all about. We’re thrilled by this recognition from the Community Design Center, an organization that continuously strives to better the Rochester community,” said Andrew Raus, vice president, Northeast/Atlantic Buildings Division, Bergmann. “We look forward to working with the City to bring these projects to fruition in the years to come.”

Award winners will be announced at the Reshaping Rochester Awards luncheon on Thursday, November 14th, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at Harro East Ballroom, 155 N Chestnut St. in Rochester. Visit to learn more.
