West Transit Village

Mayo Clinic and Destination Medical Center’s Economic Development Agency are working on a plan to enlist developers to help create a “transit village” at the Link’s west end, which includes 12.3 acres currently occupied by a 936-space parking lot. Preliminary estimates indicate the proposed village could include 680 to 800 new housing units, 35,000 to 60,000 square feet of retail space and 2,800 to 3,100 parking spaces, which would include some private Mayo employee parking, as well as public parking. The plan would also include a plaza area and public restrooms with a transit station and a new connection to Cascade Lake. And 30% to 40% open space.

About Beam
  • For the commercial sector, we tend to register startup activities (new companies and new commercial projects) that bring diversification and high-impact opportunities to the area.
  • For the non-profit sector, we wish to shine light on all the organizations and services that otherwise labor under relative obscurity.
  • Our hope is that dmcbeam.org will encourage cross-sector collaborations and creative solutions.

While there are a number of registries in the community, dmcbeam.org's  distinct value is to pilot a database with a data structure and categorizations that answer the questions such as: What organizations or projects/programs in our community that have purported relevance with some of the over-arching focuses put forward by initiatives such as DMC, J2G and Health Improvements?

This database could be used as one of the ways to explore the capacities of the community. If you are someone on an exploratory journey to learn about the greater Rochester community. dmcbeam.org could be an interesting first step.
