Rochester's revitalization is visible in downtown with parking lot fencing installed from Revolution Taproom & Grill to JetPack Comics and soon the sidewalk shut down and removed for the project on Main Street. Shortly after will be the removal of the historic former Slim's building (aka Fresh Vibes, Roaring 20s and Wooden Nichols) built in 1882 and the adjacent former Hoffman Furniture building (aka Palmer's Hardware and First National). The Hoffman Furniture building has remained vacant since closing in 1986.
What will be the newest Main Street building in nearly a hundred years will be the tallest in downtown, going up six stories with restaurant space at the ground level. The fifth and six floors will be set back allowing the fifth-floor residents patio space. The planned 45 apartment units (36 two-bedroom units, 9 one-bedroom units) will have large windows with elevator access. The building will be 55,000 square feet and enlarge its footprint in the back.
When complete, the modern building will be a downtown landmark next to Revolution Taproom & Grill. This premium apartment building will inspire even further revitalization in downtown Rochester. The Art Deco facade incorporates some of the previous design features in the Hoffman building with a new twist.
