It seems Scott Congel, the Medley Centre developer, is running out of time and excuses.
Congel proposed turning the mall into a mixed-use commercial and residential property.
"Yes it's very frustrating and I have to think of my residents and what they consider an eyesore up on Ridge Road," said Town Supervisor Mary Joyce D'Aurizio, R-Irondequoit.
Congel met with representatives from the town, County of Monroe Industrial Development Agency, or COMIDA, and the East Irondequoit School District.
By April, Congel had to show he invested $165 million in the property and failed to do so under the Payment in Leiu of Taxes, or PILOT, deal.
"We all agree he hasn't met the second milestone and that supplemental payment would be due at the time of the pilot payment in January," D'Aurizio said.
On top of the PILOT payment, Congel now owes a penalty of at least $3.2 million.
Judy Seil, director of planning and development for the county, was very tight lipped following Friday's meeting.
As for the developer himself? Congel has continued to be a ghost, at least when dealing with the media.
The driver of an SUV told YNN he was waiting to pick up Congel, but an hour after the meeting ended, the vehicle pulled away with no one inside. A half hour later, security told us Congel had left the building.
"There's a base PILOT payment that has to be made every year so that money continues to support our budget. The supplemental payments we feel are due is really a separate issue," said John Abbott, deputy superintendent of East Irondequoit schools.
D'Aurizio says Congel promised to tear down the three abandoned buildings surrounding the Medley Centre. He has a Sept. 15 deadline. She says if it isn't done, it could be the last straw.
"Then I think any other talks of anything would probably not occur," D'Aurizio said.
