ROCHESTER, NEW YORK
Standing among structures nearly twice its height, Clinton Square (14 stories, 343,191 s/f) brought its own identity to its urban setting. It also brought new life to downtown Rochester – the first new high-rise built in over 15 years.
Developed in a design-build format and under tight budget constraints, this elegant building sits on a long narrow site, its wide, horizontal bands of peach-tinted masonry and individual windows providing a pedestrian-friendly facade. A roof terrace provides a seasonal outdoor area and there is a 3-story, underground parking garage. The above-ground floors (24,000 s/f each) are designed with a minimum of interior columns.
An arched 2-story window frames the bold front door and a 2-story lobby. The lobby can also be accessed from the second entrance via a one-story vestibule building which links Clinton Square to the adjacent Lincoln Tower.
