Supervisor Bello's Statement Regarding the Sale of the Former Irondequoit Mall

Today's sale of the former Irondequoit Mall is outstanding news for Irondequoit and represents the first page in a new chapter for our Town. Today’s sale is the result of a bipartisan effort led by the Town, and I would like to thank all of our partners in Government for their cooperation and persistence.

The property is now in the hands of someone with Irondequoit roots, a proven track record of development in Irondequoit and throughout the region and the positive relationships that are essential for the development of the Mall.

When I was first elected Supervisor, I made a commitment to hold the now-previous owner of the former Mall accountable and do everything in my power to move this project forward with an owner committed to Irondequoit.

We have much work left to do, but one thing is clear: a very large barrier standing in the way of redevelopment has been removed. For that reason, and many others, there is much reason to be optimistic about Irondequoit’s future.
