Western Digital's return and my correction
In my Tuesday column about Western Digital returning to Rochester by buying Hitachi Global Storage Technologies, I recounted some of Western Digital's history in Rochester.
And I also confused two facilities in northwest Rochester. Here's how I explain it and hopefully correct it in today's column.
I knew it was a big building that formerly belonged to a technology company that left Rochester and that Mayo Clinic took over.
In my column Tuesday, I made an error when reporting about Mayo Clinic taking over a complex built by, but never occupied by, Western Digital Corp.
The facility built by Western Digital at 4001 41st St. N.W. is now called the Mayo Support Center.
I was confused. I mixed it up with the nearby Superior Drive Support Center at 3050 Superior Drive N.W., which was a Celestica Inc. facility until that company left Rochester in 2003.
I apologize for the slip-up. Thanks to two Rochester real estate experts, Jim Miner and Shelli Wappes, who both sent me gentle notes to correct me.
