Maybe the third time's the charm. It started off as the Irondequoit Mall, changed to the Medley Centre and now it's being called The Lakeridge Centre but will the new name lead to a new beginning? Between Macy's and Applebee's is where the owners of the former Irondequoit Mall would put a performing arts center but the person who says he'll make it ...

A rose by any other name is still a rose...

If your name is John Dumbass and you change it to Thomas Dumbass you still have a problem, and that is location.

It's amazing that these guys go after public money and get public tax breaks and then don't pay their taxes, then when asked a question, they say "No Comment, It's a Private Development".

God, it sounds soo much like Mayor Duffy.

Plus are they dreaming???
It's a nice location, but com'on all that is not going to happen over there.
"World Class Restaurants"?? Where are all the world class people that are going to go there?????

Webster's location sounds like the best bet.

These guys have been in control of that Mall for how long now???, and they have got nothing put in over there yet to get me to go there.

Like near by there, I've gone to TOPS, and Wal-Mart, but nothing at the mall location. It's EMPTY. I believe they made some money in selling the land for Target, but I don't goto Target.
They'd be better off knocking half of the mall down and putting a Drive-In Theater there.

Why not put an indoor Water Park indoors? Let Seabreeze run it.
Like the one in Erie, Pa.

Doesn't matter what you call it, changing the name's not going to a damn thing to improve it's reputation.

Congel missed a $500,000 payment to the town of Irondequoit as part of a tax abatement deal agreed to last March. We asked about that. Spinoso said,“You know I'm not in a position to really do that at this point in time because it's really a private development and at this point it's just not public.”

THIS IS GARBAGE. He is doing to Irondequoit, as a little rich boy, all the same nasty things that his father has done for years. WAKE UP MONROE COUNTY; Irondequoit isn't smart enough to see they're being taken for a LOOOOOONG ride.

What is with the Ridge obsession around here? West Ridge, East Ridge, Old Ridge, North Ridge, Greece Ridge.......

It will forever be known as Irondequoit Mall anyway.
