A 2014 opening is planned for a destination hotel and conference center on the north shore of Canandaigua Lake.
The proposed hotel and conference center is the final part of a plan to redevelop Canandaigua’s lakefront after the closure of Roseland amusement park in 1985 after 60 years in business.
Mayor Ellen Polimeni said the city council vote approving the project was unanimous. It cleared the way for developer David Genecco to begin construction on a five-story hotel with 176 rooms, a 9,100-square-foot conference center, restaurant, pool, spa and other meeting spaces.
Construction on the Canandaigua Club at the Canandaigua Harbor Hotel is expected to begin following the demolition of the Steamboat Landing restaurant, which is also owned by Genecco. The restaurant has been in business for about 30 years.
Future plans for the complex on the south side of Lakeshore Drive include retail stores and other businesses.
