Local News

IRONDEQUOIT, N.Y. (WROC) — On Wednesday, local leaders officially broke ground at the site of the future Irondequoit Community Center.

The plans to redevelop the former Irondequoit Mall into, now dubbed Skyview on the Ridge, a public community space have been years in the making, and the proposal passed a vote in July.

Joining Irondequoit Town Supervisor Dave Seeley for the ceremony was Congressman Joe Morelle, Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul, Monroe County Executive Adam Bello, and more local leaders.

“There will come a time when we do an event at the Irondequoit mall where everything is normal and as it should be, but until then we remain in a period of transition that’s tilting in our favor,” Irondequoit Town Supervisor Dave Seeley said.

The project will cost more than $9 million and include meeting rooms, a common area and fitness center. Barring the fitness center — it will be free to use.
