Major development poised for Macedon’s Route 31 corridor

It took a few years after the arrival of the Walmart store on Route 31 in the Town of Macedon, but the expected added growth of the Route 31 corridor seems to be coming to fruition.
The westerly entrance from Monroe County into Macedon, along with the adjoining roadways are poised to become a major retail/home development. site.
Plans have been approved for the former Spinner’s roller skating rink to be transformed into a Tractor Supply store. Using the existing building, the developer is expected to begin renovations including new heating and air conditioning, paving and landscaping by the end of August.
The current land is being subdivided into two separate parcels with the Tractor Supply footprint including 2.9 acres and another 2.4 acre commercial setting just to the west of the current building.
According to Macedon Town Engineer Scott Allen, the current unoccupied, downgraded building and property is assessed at about 1/2 million dollars, but is expected to rise to close to one million dollars in assessed value upon completion.
No price was revealed for the sale of the building and land, owned by the Masciangelo family, who currently own and run the nearby miniature golf and driving range.
This will be the third Tractor Supply store in Wayne County. One is currently located on Route 104 in the Town of Ontario and the other off Route 31 in Newark.
Another possible development will appear on the lot in front of the north east Walmart entrance off Route 31. Tim Horton’s is expected to move forward and notify the town by August 14th.
Also in the beginning stages on acreage behind the Spinner’s property/North Wayneport Road area, is a 200 unit development which will include single family homes, townhouses, senior and senior assisted living, all along with two commercial lots.
That development is being handled by BME Engineering for former Canadian/current Marion resident Andrew Iwaswkiw.
“We certainly welcome these types of development. It is good for the town and the local economy. This will be a huge boost to our tax base,” said Macedon Supervisor Bill Hammond.
