Culver Road Armory

 145 Culver Road, Rochester, NY 14620  

The innovative vision of the new Culver Road Armory creates a compelling and unique 100,000 sq. ft. product with cutting-edge design elements.

This well recognized and prominently located Rochester landmark will bring together a diverse and creative tenant base which when aligned, will make the new Armory and its iconic presence a destination for many years to come.

Our goal is to offer a modern, high-end design environment with an emphasis on creativity so distinctive, users feel an acute empathy toward the building.

The success of the design has been our ability to achieve the look and feel of a contemporary art museum within the original beauty of the monumental historic brick framework.
