Would a place like Tully's fit in there, as long as it is built within the same character of the buildings already there?
There was a Jillians for a number of years. They seemed to be doing OK, but finally left.

This is not unique to Rochester. The same thing happened to an even greater extent in Cleveland where the Flats area has returned to it's native moribund state after a few years as a hotspot. For an area to succeeed long term there has to be walkability and a strong newarby residential component. If not the commercial district will thrive or fail on the whims of fashion.

High Falls is both walkable, and close to residential areas though...

.... But the High Falls area itself is not really residential ... kinda like a "dead-zone" now.
