Manitou Crossing, an estimated $81 million mixed-use development proposed for Rochester’s south end, this week faces its first obstacle since it was originally pitched as Manitou Meadows back in September.

Realty Metrix, a commercial real estate firm located in Algonquin, Ill. – a northwest suburb of Chicago – has expressed interest in turning nearly 85 acres of local farmland into a neighborhood that blends affordable multifamily housing with retail and hospitality. A special exception for apartments and a potential YMCA is sought, as the development would be located in a general commercial district.
