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.

Wrong building

I knew it was a big building that formerly belonged to a technology company that left Rochester and that Mayo Clinic took over.

4188392932_0574ce7b21_z-1 I just picked the wrong one.

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.

Hi Jeff,

Interesting article.

Do you know where I could find more information regarding this project? I am a Market Development Rep for DuPont Chemicals and Fluroproducts and would be interested in learning more about their expansion project. Is there someone at the Mayo Clinic I can talk to?

Thanks for your help and have a great weekend!

Kind Regards,

Tim Crowley

Tim - Sorry I don't have any more info on this. Try the Mayo Clinic facilities department for more info. I hope that helps.
