Swift Shares RCC Plans for Roycroft Campus

Swift Shares RCC Plans for Roycroft Campus

by Adam Zaremski

New construction and increased greenery are in the early stages in the Roycroft Campus master plan, additions meant to reflect the history of the site, while at the same time creating a viable business plan to entice tourists to Western New York.

Only several years into the plan, with at least another 10 to go, the Roycroft Campus Corporation (RCC) has had some important and very visible reconstruction efforts completed or nearing completion in the last two years, from the replaced globe streetlights along Main Street to the rebuilding of the Power House on South Grove Street. The RCC will soon enter the second phase of the plan, yet there have been and will be changes.
