Greater Rochester International Airport
Wins $40M Award from NYS for Revitalization

We would like to congratulate our client the Greater Rochester International Airport (ROC) on their being one of two winners in Round 1 of New York State's "Upstate Airport Economic Development and Revitalization" competition.

New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo made the announcement of the $40 million state award in Rochester on September 21 to a crowd of dignitaries and community and business partners.

In announcing the award to transform ROC into a 21st Century airport, Governor Cuomo noted that the overall $63M redevelopment plan would increase economic opportunity, expand retail options, and improve passenger experience, all while promoting tourism and business development in the growing Finger Lakes region.

The Governor noted that ROC's proposed design includes world-class passenger amenities, enhanced security measures, premier retail and dining options, a solar canopy over the entrance skyway, state-of-the-art accessibility technology for the deaf and hard-of-hearing (a major constituency of the area) and a wide-scale redesign of the terminal building.

Monroe County Executive Cheryl Dinolfo said about the award, "With this award, we look forward to an updated airport offering better connectivity and mobility to our region's businesses, while welcoming companies to do business here for years to come."

SBA was happy to assist with the preparation of the airport's application for the competition, and we look forward to a continuing role in the implementation of the proposal projects. Michael A. Giardino, Director of Aviation at ROC, stated, "To develop and submit an application of this magnitude takes a lot of effort, vision, and innovation from a world-class team. We were grateful to have Steven Baldwin Associates as part of that team and assisting with the efforts for the official application submission."
