PD #6 - Rochester General Hospital
[Adopted 6-14-2005 by Ord. No. 2005-159]
A. 
Overview; introduction and statement of intent.
(1) 
The property proposed for rezoning to a planned development (PD) district is located in the City of Rochester at 1920 South Avenue and contains approximately 55 acres of gently sloping land and woods, bounded on the west by approximately 325 feet along South Avenue; northwest and north by the Rochester Psychiatric Center; east by the boundary between the City of Rochester and the Town of Brighton and the Monroe Developmental Center; and south by the Green Knolls and Highland Apartments. [See Map 1 of certain maps entitled "Rochester Science Park Development Concept Plan Submission" by Sasaki Associates, Inc., and Sear Brown Associates, P.C. dated November 8, 1985 (referred to herein as the "Development Concept Plan Submission") and the legal description in Exhibit A attached hereto.[1]
[1]
Said map and legal description are on file in the City offices.
(2) 
Uses permitted in this PD district will be restricted to businesses of a scientific or professional use or nature as outlined within this document under acceptable uses. Site amenities, including the woods and trees of special interest or size, are to be retained to the maximum extent feasible. The district, to be identified as the "Rochester Science Park Subdivision" (and to be referred to herein as the "district" or the "Science Park"), will permit one or more subdivision lots (referred to herein as "sites" or "lots") with access from the main drive of the Science Park which intersects South Avenue. A controlled emergency access road connects the main drive's easterly cul-de-sac to a service drive located on the adjoining institutional property. The Science Park is to provide sites needed by expanding high-technology firms and will provide an attractive setting conducive to the requirements of such firms for a quiet environment in close proximity to similar firms and research-related centers. Existing screening of the district's perimeter adjoining institutional and residential uses will be maintained, and additional landscape screening with trees, shrubs and planted berms is to be provided.
[Amended 6-20-2017 by Ord. No. 2017-167].
(3) 
These PD district regulations are intended to control the development of the Science Park. The intent is to ensure a high-quality campus-style development that is compatible in design and operation with the site and surrounding residential, commercial and institutional uses. The primary objective in establishing design and development criteria is to ensure a sense of continuity in land uses, aesthetic values and environmental sensitivity in the overall development of the Science Park. A high standard is being promulgated in order to create a park that will be distinguished by a consistently high quality of architectural design sympathetically placed in a natural setting. These controls are intended to establish and maintain confidence that the quality and operational characteristics of the overall development will remain high and, therefore, that the economic and environmental values of the Science Park and surrounding area will be protected.
(4) 
In order to achieve these objectives, all plans for building and site design, including special requirements for the preservation of natural site characteristics, and other environmental considerations, will be subject to review by the Project Review Committee ("Committee") in accordance with § 120-190 of the Zoning Code. The Committee will consider each proposal on its design and planning merits. It will judge the particular opportunities, conditions and problems of each parcel with its related development program. The Committee will evaluate each proposal to determine its adherence to high aesthetic standards, sympathy with the natural characteristics, and compatibility with development on adjoining sites or lots and with surrounding institutions and neighborhoods.
B. 
Project review and approval process.
(1) 
Procedures for review and approval of projects within the Science Park are outlined in Article XVII of the Zoning Code.
(2) 
No site or lot in the district shall be developed or improved unless and until a site plan has been approved as provided in Article XVII of the Zoning Code.
(3)

A. 
Purpose. In or about 1960, the bulk of the property subject to this Planned Development District began to be used for a private, recreational tennis club. Over the last 50 years the recreational uses have been expanded to include not only tennis but other athletic purposes as well. In an ever-continuing effort to meet the needs and desires of its club members, the Athletic Club now seeks to further expand its athletic and recreational facilities and services, as well as allow for future flexibility of adaptive reuse of said facilities. This Planned Development District No. 8 is intended to recognize and provide a defined area for diverse mixed-use development closely associated with the Mid-Town Athletic Club or successor uses. Such uses may include housing, retail, commercial, educational and other complementary uses. This Planned Development District will incorporate appropriate design elements, amenities or treatments that create, enhance and reinforce the design relationships between Mid-Town Athletic Club and the other buildings and uses in order to establish an ambience that is uniquely urban and pedestrian oriented. It is the goal of this Planned Development District No. 8 that the entirety of the subject property may be utilized for athletic and recreational facilities and purposes, while at the same time limiting the future adaptive uses as described herein to those that may be conducted within the existing structures or any expansion thereof.

A. 
Purpose.
(1) 
The intent of the Planned Development District No. 9 (PD #9), Canalside Business Center, is to allow for flexibility in establishing mixed-use commercial, retail and industrial purposes and to provide for the orderly growth and development of the site with future adaptive uses, as described herein, to those that may be conducted within the existing structures or any expansion thereof. Significant architectural, site and wayfinding improvements will increase the overall aesthetic value of the property.
(2) 
The proposed PD #9 encompasses approximately 123.0 acres of land located on the south side of Lyell Avenue, bordered by I-490 to the south, the Erie Canal to the west and Rochester and Southern Railroad to the east. There is an existing manufacturing facility of 1.5 million square feet on the site that was previously utilized for the manufacturing and distribution of automotive parts.
(3) 
The proposed PD #9 will be divided into three areas for development and redevelopment, and one area that is currently undeveloped adjacent to the Erie Canal.
(a) 
The primary area, Sub-Area 1, is approximately 98 acres and consists of the existing industrial/manufacturing facility located at the rear of the site. This area will allow for adaptive reuse opportunities that can contribute to the district character and offer a diversity of goods and services.
(b) 
Sub-Area 2 involves redevelopment of approximately five acres of land between Gloster Road and Adirondack Street, having approximately 450 linear feet of frontage on Lyell Avenue. This area is proposed to be redeveloped as mixed-commercial, servicing both the surrounding community and the employees within the on-site facilities.
(c) 
Sub-Area 3 is approximately 20 acres and is located in the northeast portion of the site with approximately 760 linear feet of frontage on Lyell Avenue. The proposed redevelopment in this portion of the property is proposed for a large-scale commercial/retail building with associated parking and infrastructure. Flexibility in the regulations for Sub-Area 3 also provides for potential development for light industrial and manufacturing.
(d) 
Sub-Area 4 is approximately five acres and is located at the southwest portion of the site adjacent to the Erie Canal. This area is currently undeveloped and includes a large stand of mature trees and vegetation. Development within this area shall be consistent with the local waterfront revitalization program (LWRP).

[Adopted 4-13-2010 by Ord. No. 2010-111]
A. 
Purpose.
(1) 
The intent of the Planned Development District No. 10 (PD #10) is to provide a flexible framework for the orderly future development of the University of Rochester's River Campus and its Medical Center/Mid Campus. This framework has been set forth in the University's 2008 Campus Master Plan, completed in 2009, which provides guidance for the development of the University's lands and facilities covering a period of at least 20 years.
(2) 
As informed by the Campus Master Plan and in accordance with the guidelines for PD #10, development in PD #10 will reflect the spirit of a vibrant University community by creatively combining the University's traditional architectural heritage with innovative designs for new buildings and other site improvements. Such development will also reflect the University's commitment to enhance the environmental quality and sustainability of the University. This development will additionally provide for orderly transitions among land uses within the campus and will ensure integration of the campus with the neighborhood.
(3) 
New development will expand diversity by including a vibrant mix of uses, buildings of varying heights and sizes, and outdoor rooms for social gathering and recreation. Growth plans include extending the open space qualities of the River Campus to the Medical Center/Mid Campus and highlighting Kendrick Road as a major boulevard-style gateway with significant street trees and ornamental landscaping. PD #10 is intended to be a multimodal district, accommodating vehicular, pedestrian, transit and bicycle traffic.
(4) 
The district shall be comprised of two areas:
(a) 
Sub Area 1 - River Campus. The intent of Sub Area 1 is to facilitate and guide development within this campus that builds on the existing formal geometry, materials palette, and scale of the River Campus and extends the quality and identity of the University from its core to its edges. Buildings in Sub Area 1 shall be subordinate in height to Rush Rhees Library, one of the major symbols of the University.
(b) 
Sub Area 2 - Medical Center/Mid Campus. The intent of Sub Area 2 is to facilitate and guide development within this area in order to create a central inpatient core with ancillary facilities in flanking locations and to support planning and technical requirements for state-of-the-art medical care, research, and teaching. Future development in this area will enhance the health care experience through the design of the public realm, integration of daylight throughout the facilities, and interconnected gardens.
B. 
Permitted uses. Permitted uses in PD #10 will relate primarily to health care, educational, research, academic and other university activities, residential uses and accessory uses thereto, including retail services and other small-scale commercial enterprises. Such uses will generally occur in, but not be limited to, the areas shown on Figure 2.

D. 
Access and off-street parking.
(1) 
Parking requirements: There are no minimum parking requirements within the PD #10 District.
(2) 
Minimizing access points on the primary streets. Each site shall be permitted appropriate ingress/egress to and from the site. Existing access drives and shared access from adjacent sites shall be analyzed prior to submitting requests for new access points.
(3) 
Dropoffs. Where substantiation is provided, front yard dropoffs will be allowed near major building entrances.
(4) 
Parking placement. Off-street parking is generally not permitted between buildings and the street or in defined open spaces, with the exception of approved dropoff areas. On Crittenden Boulevard, front-yard parking will be permitted in accordance with the Crittenden Boulevard Enhancement Plan, which will provide for interconnected parking lots and minimal access points.
(5) 
Loading and service yards. Loading docks and service yards should generally be placed on secondary or other streets and not on primary streets; they should be screened, as appropriate, from view from public streets and should not be visible from public building entries.
(6) 
Parking garage access. Access to garages should be from secondary roads.
E. 
Open space. The intent of the Campus Master Plan is to extend the open space qualities of the River Campus to the Medical Center/Mid Campus, where appropriate. The concept plan reflected in Figure 4 will guide the location of open space areas.

Figure 5 - River Campus Suggested Concept
(a) 
Setbacks.
[1] 
Wilson Boulevard: 20 feet.
[2] 
Intercampus Drive: not applicable.
[3] 
River: subject to site plan review.
(b) 
Architectural character. Applications for new construction shall be guided by the following principles from the Design Guidelines of the Campus Master Plan, which build on the concepts of the original 1930 Master Plan for the River Campus:
[1] 
Building placement.
[a] 
The River Campus is composed of a series of buildings and deliberately designed spaces, characterized by alignment along a series of axes and arranged in an orderly way so as to create a series of well-defined, relatively enclosed outdoor spaces, commonly referred to as "quads." New construction should respect and reinforce this pattern of development.
[b] 
Buildings should remain parallel and perpendicular to adjoining streets as much as possible.
[c] 
The development of recognizable outdoor quads will typically include a clear hierarchy of a hero building framed by soldier buildings.
[d] 
Buildings should generally retain a minimum of 60% of their frontage along the setback line, but allowances will be made, where appropriate, for additional sidewalk depth for pedestrian amenities or architectural features that enhance the pedestrian scale and experience of the building façade.
[2] 
Façade composition.
[a] 
The design of the façade is a synthesis of three basic divisions: the tripartite divisions of base, middle and top.
[b] 
Facades should be organized through the use of regulating lines.
[c] 
Facades should contain a repetition of similarly proportioned elements of structure, bay and window, solid and void.
[d] 
Materials, massing and fenestration should be consistent with existing campus construction. Repetition of elements should be moderated in order to avoid monotony and to weave elements into multiple rhythms that enhance visual interest. Porticoes, gables, cornices, columns and dormers should be used where appropriate to define the character of buildings and grounds by regulating scale, massing and façade rhythm.
[e] 
Window pattern and other fenestration should have a mix of pattern of verticals and horizontals to create a tapestry of pattern across the façade.
[f] 
The fenestration should be modulated across the façade with vertical bays, glassy corners, and a balance of solid to voids, as appropriate.
[g] 
Entrances should be prominent with a high level of transparency, arcades and porticoes as appropriate.
[h] 
Brick colors should tie into existing buildings as appropriate.
[i] 
Wrapping parking structures along the base/human scale elevation with other uses, such as housing or office space, is encouraged. If a parking structure is visible from Wilson Boulevard, its façade should be designed to blend in as much as reasonably possible with the surrounding buildings, through the appropriate use of compatible materials, fenestration pattern, and façade composition.
[3] 
Massing and screening.
[a] 
Massing should break down buildings into smaller parts, through the use of base (human scale, transparency, activity at the ground levels), middle (how the building rises from its base) and top (how the building meets the sky); tower elements; vertical divisions or bays (central, intermediate and end); and a vertical datum of 45 feet to 60 feet above grade where the building steps back to minimize its perceived height.
[b] 
The base should reflect the human scale of pedestrians.
[c] 
Rooftop mechanical equipment should be screened from view using a material compatible with the material palette of the rest of the building.
[4] 
Height.
[a] 
New buildings should be subordinate to the Rush Rhees Library Dome.
[b] 
Along primary and secondary street frontages, buildings taller than 45 feet to 60 feet should step back from the street frontage to minimize the building's perceived height and maintain a human scale along the street.
[c] 
The visual impact of upper stories should be reduced through the use of material, color and pattern.
[5] 
Materials.
[a] 
The character of the buildings should respond to and complement the palette of materials and colors present on the University of Rochester campus.
[b] 
Discouraged materials and practices.
[i] 
Cast-in-place concrete, metal panel, "utility" brick and glass block are generally discouraged as materials for exterior walls.
[ii] 
Unbroken or modulated bands of glass, brick, or metal are discouraged.
(2) 
Sub Area 2 - Medical Center/Mid Campus. The suggested concept plan reflected in Figure 6 will guide the placement of new buildings on the Medical Center/Mid Campus.

(b) 
Architectural character. Applications for new construction shall be guided by the following principles in response to the palette of materials, patterns and colors present on the University of Rochester Medical Center campus:
[1] 
Building placement.
[a] 
Buildings should remain parallel and perpendicular to adjoining streets as much as possible.
[b] 
Buildings should generally retain a minimum of 60% of their frontage along the setback line, but allowances will be made, where appropriate, for additional sidewalk depth for pedestrian amenities or architectural features that enhance the pedestrian scale and experience of the building façade.
[c] 
Building placement should provide connectivity and a strong sense of place and should create organized exterior spaces.
[d] 
Buildings should be placed to maintain east/west vision corridors along Lattimore Road through to Intercampus Drive.
[2] 
Façade composition.
[a] 
The design of the façade is a synthesis of three basic divisions: the tripartite divisions of base, middle and top.
[b] 
Facades should be organized through the use of regulating lines.
[c] 
Facades should contain a repetition of similarly proportioned elements of structure, bay and window, solid and void.
[d] 
Repetition of elements should be moderated in order to avoid monotony, and to weave elements into multiple rhythms that enhance visual interest. Porticoes, gables, cornices, columns and dormers should be used where appropriate to define the character of buildings and grounds by regulating scale, massing and façade rhythm.
[e] 
Buildings such as the Cancer Center, Arthur Kornberg Medical Research Building and the entrance to the School of Medicine and Dentistry are examples to be emulated on the campus. As shown by these buildings:
[i] 
Large buildings' scale can be modulated by breaking up the mass into smaller segments.
[ii] 
Window pattern and other fenestration should mix patterns of verticals and horizontals to create a tapestry of pattern across the façade.
[iii] 
The fenestration should be modulated across the façade with vertical bays, glassy corners, and a balance of solid to voids, as appropriate.
[iv] 
Entrances should be prominent with a high level of transparency, arcades and porticoes as appropriate.
[v] 
Brick colors should be blended with red, brown, and burgundy brick within the same building to tie into other buildings on campus.
[vi] 
Roofs should be flat or shaped as appropriate to complement surrounding architectural styles.
[vii] 
Laboratory building designs should locate public spaces, offices, and circulation on the perimeter of the floor plan to animate the main facade with human traffic, and blank facades should be minimized.
[viii] 
Wrapping parking structures along the base/human scale elevation with other uses, such as housing or office space, is encouraged. If a parking structure is visible from Elmwood Avenue, Crittenden Boulevard, Castleman Road or the residential section of Westmoreland Drive, its façade should be designed to blend in as much as reasonably possible with the surrounding buildings, through the appropriate use of compatible materials, fenestration pattern, and façade composition.
[3] 
Massing and screening.
[a] 
Building massing should fundamentally be driven by program requirements or relevant Campus Master Plan requirements.
[b] 
Buildings should be sited to form outdoor spaces and/or define a street edge.
[c] 
Building massing should step up from a four- to five-story base along public streets which can screen upper floors from overpowering the street scale.
[d] 
Massing should break down buildings into smaller parts, through the use of base (human scale, transparency, activity at the ground levels), middle (how the building rises from its base) and top (how the building meets the sky); tower elements; vertical divisions or bays (central, intermediate and end); and a vertical datum of 45 feet to 60 feet above grade where the building steps back to minimize its perceived height from the street.
[e] 
The base should reflect the human scale of pedestrians.
[f] 
Building height and massing and general use should be similar and compatible across streets, i.e., with similar numbers of floors, setbacks, landscaping, and scale.
[g] 
Towers or other significant architectural treatments should be located at the corner of Kendrick Road and Lattimore Road as well as Kendrick Road and Westmoreland Drive to serve as an anchor to the development and a gateway to the University.
[h] 
Mechanical penthouses either should be stepped back from the building primary façade or should devise a screen that is an extension of the primary façade architecture of sufficient height to conceal all rooftop-mounted mechanical equipment.
[4] 
Height.
[a] 
Maximum building height in the core of the Medical Center/Mid Campus is as allowed by the Federal Aviation Administration.
[b] 
The visual impact of upper stories should be reduced through the use of materials, color and pattern.
[5] 
Materials.
[a] 
The character of the buildings should respond to and complement the palette of materials and colors present on the Medical Center/Mid Campus.
[b] 
Discouraged materials and practices.
[i] 
Cast-in-place concrete, metal panel, "utility" brick and glass block are generally discouraged as materials for exterior walls.
[ii] 
Unbroken or modulated bands of glass, brick, or metal are discouraged.
G.

(2) 
Alternative sign program. An alternative sign program containing provisions different from the above may be approved by the Manager of Zoning through minor site plan review, subject to review and recommendation by the Project Review Committee. An alternative sign program should contain imaginative, effective and visually compatible provisions that respond to unique site-specific conditions and/or uses and should serve as the sign regulations for the overall campus. Such plan should reinforce vehicular- and pedestrianway finding, facilitate enhancements which will contribute to the campus's unique sense of place, and incorporate controls which deter sign clutter (including excessive numbers and sizes of signs and inappropriate sign types, materials, and lighting) which could negatively impact the adjoining neighborhood and/or overall campus. In no case shall an alternative sign program permit advertising signs.

[Adopted 5-11-2010 by Ord. No. 2010-153; amended 9-19-2012 by Ord. No. 2012-363; 6-20-2017 by Ord. No. 2017-170; 7-23-2019 by Ord. No. 2019-218]
A. 
Purpose.
(1) 
The Planned Development District Number 12 (PD #12) consists of approximately 170 acres of Eastman Business Park. The intent of PD #12 is to promote high employment and economic development opportunities that will benefit from the location in an urban setting served by existing infrastructure, including utilities, public services, and multimodal transportation options. The regulations encourage a mix of commercial, retail, residential and industrial uses that may be conducted in existing or newly built structures. The regulations intend to recognize and permit a defined area for the unified and orderly development of PD #12.
(2) 
New development will frame and enhance public and private streets and open spaces in and around the site, including West Ridge Road and Lake Avenue. The goal is to transform these streets from high-volume, high-speed, vehicular corridors to balanced spaces that include pedestrian, bicycle, and transit amenities. The street network will be designed for vehicle movement at 30 mph maximum. Eastman Avenue, as well as any new internal streets east of Lake Avenue, will be pedestrian-oriented and incorporate quality materials and site amenities, decorative streetlighting, street trees and other elements to create a public realm welcoming and comfortable to all users.
(3) 
Environmental considerations will be encouraged and recommended with new development, including the use of sustainable building materials and green infrastructure practices, and following dark-sky lighting principles to prevent light pollution and intrusion to neighboring residential areas.
(4) 
Private and public gathering space, green space, and bicycle and pedestrian paths will be concentrated in the areas of PD #12 to enhance connections to and from existing nearby open space, and existing and proposed retail, commercial and work destinations. Green space and pathways will be concentrated primarily in Subarea 2, and along the periphery of Subarea 1.
B. 
PD #12 is divided into two subareas:
(1) 
Subarea 1 currently consists of approximately 126 acres of heavy industrial, office and manufacturing facilities, and vacant land, generally north of West Ridge Road and west of Lake Avenue. This area will provide adaptive reuse opportunities for existing buildings and sites for new construction for office, research, commercial, and industrial uses.
(2) 
Subarea 2 currently consists of approximately 43 acres of parking lots, generally south of West Ridge Road and east of Lake Avenue. This area will provide adaptive reuse opportunities for the existing buildings, and flexibility for new construction of offices, research and development, light industrial, retail, mixed-use and residential uses.

[Adopted 11-12-2014 by Ord. No. 2014-339; amended 5-17-2016 by Ord. No. 2016-154]
A. 
Purpose and intent.
(1) 
The Century-Strathallan Planned Development District (Planned Development District No. 16, or PD No. 16) is comprised of approximately 4.07 acres of private land, including four properties with five separate buildings as depicted on the Development Concept Plan[1] and labeled as Subareas 1 to 4.
[1]
Editor's Note: The Development Concept Plan is on file in the City offices.
(2) 
The intent of Century-Strathallan Planned Development District is to provide a defined area for unified and integrated development. It will allow a diversification in the uses permitted and variation in the relationship of uses, structures, and open spaces. The PD will create more flexible use and development opportunities than would be possible through the strict application of the current R-3 O/O Code regulations. The district will provide flexibility and efficiencies in hotel and club use and operation that will support efforts to meet their needs, those of their customers, and those of travelers visiting the City. The PD is intended to ensure the current and long-range success of both the Strathallan Hotel and the Century Club. The PD will clearly set the parameters of use and growth that will protect the adjacent residential neighborhood. From a Code perspective, the Strathallan Hotel and Century Club will no longer be regulated as intrusions in the district but rather desirable and important elements of the neighborhood. The planned development district regulations will set a clear level of expectation for the future and in doing so will provide more certainty for the ownership and the neighborhood.
(3) 
Uses may include housing, retail, commercial, office and other complementary hospitality uses. This planned development district will incorporate appropriate design elements, amenities or treatments that maintain and enhance the design relationships between buildings and uses within the district and beyond the district in order to maintain an ambience that is uniquely urban and pedestrian oriented.
(4) 
It is the goal of Planned Development District No. 16 that the entirety of the district may be utilized for the integrated and unified use and development of the Century Club and the Strathallan Hotel. The district will provide for the benefits and efficiencies that come with collaborative use and the synergies that will support the success of both facilities. Generally, uses would be for hospitality and lodging-related purposes while at the same time limiting the future adaptive uses as described herein to those that may be conducted within the existing structures or any expansion thereof. The District will afford protections that limit use, clearly define boundaries, better control parking, preserve important open spaces, and provide for the careful consideration of the construction of new buildings. Any development in the district continues to be subject to Rochester Preservation Board approval and site plan approval for incremental development by the Manager of Zoning.

[Added 3-19-2019 by Ord. No. 2019-55]
A. 
Purpose. The purpose of the Planned Development District No. 17 (the "Highland Hospital PD" or "PD #17") is to provide a flexible framework for the orderly future development and redevelopment of the Highland Hospital Campus (the "campus"). The intent of the Highland Hospital PD is to guide future development of the campus, which allows Highland Hospital to maintain its important presence and fulfill its commitment to excellence and service to its patients, staff, visitors, and the community. Development within the Highland Hospital PD will reflect the spirit of a state-of-the-art community hospital, known for its comprehensive care, guided by the following goals and objectives:
(1) 
Highland Hospital strives to provide the best possible patient care that meets contemporary health-care standards, and which acknowledges and responds to the changing nature of health-care delivery into the future. Advances in technology, equipment, and evidence-based medicine require continuous and thoughtful upgrades to the facility to support and ensure continuity of care. Key services are located near the diagnostic and treatment areas to promote convenient patient access, minimize travel distances, and establish important adjacencies to realize efficiencies in providing care.
(2) 
Highland Hospital will make the best use of available space within the existing physical constraints on the campus, such as: the historic development of the campus over 125 years resulting in the construction of dozens of buildings and add-ons that need to be harmonized and continually re-adapted; the limitations of a 9.3 acre site that cannot be expanded, and which necessitates the emphasis on vertical construction; the sheer number of natural slopes and grade changes which challenge development; and its proximity to a residential neighborhood and Highland Park. With a collection of buildings that have been developed over 125 years, many of the structures and aging infrastructure require repair, modification, replacement, or modernization to provide an environment that supports the highest level of patient care.
(3) 
As an integral part of the Highland Park neighborhood for over 125 years, development in the Highland Hospital PD will be sensitive to the character of the neighborhood through the use of quality exterior materials and thoughtful landscaping and hardscaping features to screen views, especially of the utility plant on the campus, from adjacent or nearby properties. To promote an appropriate spatial balance between the campus and adjacent or nearby properties, appropriate setbacks will be respected.
B. 
Planned development district limits. The Highland Hospital PD is approximately 9.3 acres, generally bounded by South Avenue, Rockingham Street, Mt. Vernon Avenue, and Bellevue Drive, as shown on the Planned Development District Map (the "Highland Hospital PD Map").[1]

Editor's Note: See Exhibit A at the end of this section.
C.

Planned Development District No. 18 (PD#18) is comprised of approximately 17.67 acres within the City of Rochester. PD#18 will provide a defined area for unified and integrated development providing for the benefits and efficiencies of mixed land use. The PD creates flexible use and development opportunities, including multifamily rental housing, retail sales and service, commercial, office, and hospitality. Nonresidential uses in the PD are intended to serve the public as well as the residents of the district.
(2) 
PD#18 is composed of two subareas:
(a) 
Subarea 1: Commercial Frontage. This subarea provides an interface with the Elmwood Avenue public right-of-way and accommodates commercial buildings along that frontage; and
(b) 
Subarea 2: Mixed Use Core. This subarea is predominantly residential and includes smaller-scale retail sales, service, and recreational uses providing for residents' needs and convenience, while at the same time available to the public. Uses in the Mixed Use Core area front on internal private streets and have no interface with the public right-of-way.
(3) 
The district is enhanced by a large, well-defined, curvilinear central open space that provides leisure and recreational amenities for residents and guests. This area provides trails, pedestrianways, gathering spaces, water features, cycling opportunities, and wayfinding signage, which serves as an organizing element for the district. Easements to the City of Rochester and Town of Brighton exist to enhance and extend the Highland Crossing trail system, which promotes linkages to nearby uses and neighborhoods, natural open space, and parks and which will connect to a proposed cycle track along Elmwood Avenue.

[Adopted 8-15-2017 by Ord. No. 2017-266]
A. 
Purpose and intent. The intent of the Education Success Campus Planned Development District is to provide the regulatory framework for the redevelopment and reuse of the former Nazareth Academy site. The purpose of the district is to create a unified campus that promotes a mixed-use environment that is centered on providing lifelong learning and enrichment opportunities for children and adults. The campus will also serve as a home to the community services necessary to ensure the success of our children and their families.
It is anticipated that the school building will be used for a public charter school, to host other schools (both public and private) and for administrative offices and support services. The former convent and three residential structures will be used as administrative offices, for enrichment activities, and for support services (such as clinics). Site improvements will be completed to expand parking, improve accessibility, and reconfigure traffic flow (on and off the site.)
It is the intent to maintain the residential character of the former convent and the three existing residential structures on site to ensure the continued compatibility with the predominate character of the surrounding residential neighborhood.

[Added 11-20-2018 by Ord. No. 2018-364]
A. 
Purpose. The purpose of Planned Development District No. 20 (PD #20), Pediatric and Family Service District, is to offer a world-class, regional destination focused on a wide range of innovative social service agencies and educational and behavioral programs designed specifically for individuals and their families living with the daily challenges of autism spectrum disorder, mental health, and behavioral and psychiatric needs; all in one location.
By collocating agencies which specialize in the provision of such social, educational, and behavioral services, PD #20 permits the development of an internal campus environment sensitive to the mobility, sensory, and mental health needs of the children and adults it is intended to serve. PD #20 creates a defined area for the integrated development and delivery of programs and support services consistent with the vision of the Al Sigl Community of Agencies, which is a collaborative community network of organizations, to serve and support children and adults with disabilities and special needs. Agencies within PD #20 may include, but are not limited to, the following:
(1) 
The Golisano Autism Center. The Center is a one-of-a-kind collaboration of health and human service agencies providing speech and occupational therapy, support and social skills groups, preschool and school-age classrooms, vocational training, life skills development, and other opportunities, services and programs.
(2) 
The Golisano Pediatric Behavioral Health and Wellness Center, operated by the University of Rochester Medical Center (URMC). URMC will address the needs of individuals suffering from mild to severe depression, anxiety, psychosis, substance abuse, ADHD, PTSD, autism spectrum disorder, and other mental health, medical, emotional and behavioral conditions. URMC offers education, recreation and fitness, therapeutic, medical, diagnostic, and other support services, activities and programs.
B. 
Intent. The intent of PD #20 is to establish a campus that offers access to comprehensive, high-quality support and services which meet the complex needs of the individuals who are served, during moments of crisis as well as part of a regular routine throughout their lifetime, as needs and services change. Development within PD #20 shall support the achievement of the following objectives:
(1) 
Provide a unique array of services that co-exist on a secure campus, emphasizing the safety, security and privacy of all individuals served and their families.
(2) 
Foster a protective environment for individuals from infant to adulthood that have been diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder, mild to severe mental health, anxiety, chemical dependency, and emotional disturbances, in a setting that offers all services on a single campus.
(3) 
Establish a continuum of care that will span a lifetime and offer a full array of coordinated program options for infants, toddlers, youth, teens and adults, including behavioral and primary care support; respite; community habilitation; social skills; recreational and therapeutic services; and a housing and employment liaison.
(4) 
Design a campus which prioritizes security, privacy and accessibility to address the challenges of the populations served, ranging from mobility impairment, flight risks due to unexpected stress or stimuli, and mental health and similar crisis situations.
(5) 
Create a comfortable setting within a controlled environment to eliminate or mitigate anxiety triggered by interactions with unfamiliar or unpredictable external situations and settings.
(6)

Q. 
Development concept plan.
[Added 8-20-2019 by Ord. No. 2019-256]
A. 
Purpose and intent.
(1) 
The purpose and intent of Planned Development District No. 21 (PD #21), to be known as "The Vistas at Highland," is to provide for a plan and regulatory framework, for the future use and development of the campus for the Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School ("Colgate"), that recognizes the importance of its historic, cultural, and natural features. A protective, yet flexible, regulatory environment will preserve those features while allowing reasonable use and reuse of the historic buildings.
(2) 
The Development Concept Plan for PD #21 recognizes the historic importance of the Colgate Campus with its highly prominent location on an elevated site, distinctive landscape plan and homogeneous Gothic Revival style buildings.
The property is a designated City landmark, including interior designation of the chapel. It has also been determined eligible for individual listing on the National Register of Historic Places by the New York State Historic Preservation Office due to its architecture, landscape, and its cultural significance.
PD #21's historic preservation and conservation efforts are primarily directed toward the safeguarding of the historic buildings, Montgomery Hall, Strong Hall and Trevor Hall; and the dominant sweeping south lawn, emphasizing the elevations of the buildings; and of materials, with its varied and mature plant palette dramatic forefront.
In addition to the existing local landmark designation, the zoning text for PD #21 will further protect the three historic buildings through restricted reuse options, as well as by precluding additions to those buildings as well as new construction immediately adjacent to and within the individual lot areas of those buildings. The south lawn will be further protected by a conservation easement which will proscribe any development within the easement area. The proposed new buildings will be located and designed so as to preserve and protect the existing natural and geologic features of the property.
(3) 
The PD #21 site is within a critical environmental area designated by the City of Rochester that encompasses the slopes and crests of the following glacial formations: Cobbs Hill, Pinnacle Hill, and the lesser hills, comprised of kames, kettles and eskers, generally situated north of Highland Avenue, and extending from Mount Hope Cemetery to the west and extending eastward through Highland Park, the PD #21 site, Pinnacle Hill and Cobbs Hill. The PD #21 also is distinctive due to the presence of heavily wooded areas along its north, east and west lot lines.
The PD #21 text and development concept plan acknowledge the importance of these features and promote their protection by carefully locating new buildings and parking areas to avoid unnecessary encroachment; limiting the number of trees to be removed; locating the new buildings primarily in previously disturbed portions of the site; providing the ultimate protection and conservation of the south lawn; and utilizing temporary and permanent stabilization measures and best construction management practices during construction.
(4) 
The development concept plan subdivides PD #21 into six lots. The various lots are designed to allow for site access; the use and reuse of existing historic structures; new residential developments; accessory parking; vehicular and pedestrian circulation elements; and the protection of the most significant historic and natural elements of the site.
(5) 
Shared parking is encouraged to promote efficient use of land and resources by allowing users that may have different peak parking demands and/or different hours of operation to share proximate parking facilities.
B. 
Lot and building descriptions (see development concept plan).[1]
(1) 
Lot 1 currently is open space and a portion of a parking lot. It is planned for residential development with two apartment buildings and accessory underground and surface parking. The remainder of the lot is to be devoted to landscaping, with large setback requirements from the north and west lot lines that will protect substantial wooded areas.
(2) 
Lot 2 allows for the continuous use of two existing apartment buildings, Andrews Hall and Saunders House, along with the provision of accessory surface parking. Both existing buildings have traditionally been used as apartments for student housing.
(3) 
Lot 3 encompasses Montgomery Hall, its courtyard, driveway, and parking area. Montgomery Hall has a floor area of 7,916 square feet and has been used as a dwelling and as the home of Colgate's presidents. Lot 3 accommodates the use and reuse of Montgomery Hall, while prohibiting building additions and new construction.
(4) 
Lot 4 includes Strong Hall with a floor area of 76,123 square feet, an outdoor terrace, and a parking lot. Strong Hall was the main school facility with classrooms, offices, cafeteria, auditorium, chapel and library. The use and reuse of Strong Hall is accommodated, while prohibiting building additions and new construction.
(5) 
Lot 5 includes Trevor Hall, which has 31,776 square feet of floor area. This facility is currently leased to the American Cancer Society for the operation of a facility known as Hope Lodge. It includes offices; 29 transient rooms that vary in size and number of beds; a central kitchen, dining room, and laundry facilities, which are available to visitors. This lot accommodates the use and reuse of the building, while prohibiting building additions and new construction.
(6) 
Lot 6 consists of two subareas. Subarea 1 includes existing site access, open space, parking, accessory uses, certain utilities, and the existing access drive from South Goodman Street. Subarea 2 encompasses the historic south lawn landscaped area, arguably the most important landscape open space element of the local landmark property. This subarea will be protected, not only by the existing local landmark designation, but also by a preservation easement, and will be maintained by the project sponsor. No development, including buildings or other structures, mining, dredging, filling, grading, paving, excavation or drilling will be permitted in this easement area as it will continue to serve as the dramatic forefront to the hilltop historic buildings.
