Richards and a revolving cast of supporting characters have been snipping their way around the city, welcoming each new addition to Rochester’s seemingly endless parade of apartment projects. But how many apartments are too many? The population of Monroe County is not and has not been growing at any significant rate, and one of the entrenched problems facing the City of Rochester is that it’s overbuilt — too much housing, not enough people. So who is going to live in all these new apartments, lofts, townhouses? City has the story behind Rochester’s apartment boom, while Publisher Mary Anna Towler goes behind the scenes of one project in particular, a controversial apartment proposal for University Avenue (pictured), in this week’s Urban Journal.
