SUPREME COURT OF NEW YORK, APPELLATE DIVISION, FOURTH DEPARTMENT
May 16, 1968
IN THE MATTER OF THE CITY OF ROCHESTER, APPELLANT, RELATIVE TO ACQUIRING CERTAIN LANDS FOR AN URBAN RENEWAL PROJECT IN THE FRONT STREET AREA KNOWN AS GENESEE CROSSROADS. JULES FRIEDMAN ET AL., RESPONDENTS
Appeal from judgment of Monroe Trial Term compensating respondents in condemnation proceeding.
Williams, P. J., Goldman, Del Vecchio, Marsh and Witmer, JJ.
Memorandum: We find that the premises should be considered as a single unit, and not as separate parcels as urged by appellant. In valuing the property we have used the economic approach. We find the estimated annual net rent income to be $7,425, and the fair market value of the land at $14 per square foot, to be $54,936. Allowing a 6% return on land value, we attribute $3,296 of total net income to land and capitalize the remaining $4,129 at 11% to arrive at a value of the improvements of $37,536. This, added to the land value of $54,936, yields a total value of $92,472.
Judgment unanimously modified on the law and facts by reducing tha award to $92,472, and as modified affirmed, without costs.
