Residences of Old City Hall

Welcome to Rochester's Most Unique Living Space

Residences of Old City Hall is the most charming and prestigious rental option in Rochester.

The building is a renovated Art Deco building built in 1932 that served as the seat of city government for 67 years. The interior retains the 1200 square foot Grand Foyer as well as the marble-lined hallway, terrazzo floors, and 25 foot master staircase. Even the courtroom benches have found homes along the spacious corridors.

Urban living at its best ...

Located in the heart of downtown, twenty-two unique, exciting apartments with whirlpool baths, high ceilings and state-of-the-art amenities are reached through marble-lined terrazzo hallways extending from the Grand Foyer. Each of the 22 units offers its own individual style and personality.

Every effort has been made to stay true to the original building design, restoring the original Art Deco light fixtures, terrazzo flooring and metal accent-work. The bond between modern luxury and timeless design makes ROCH your best choice in urban living.

The Grand Staircase ...

remains as a piece of history where citizens would ascend to the courtroom which was located on the second floor.

The Apartments

range in size from 612-1400 square feet. All of the apartments retain the original architectural intent. Key original lighting and architectural features have been carefully restored. Those features not left in their original public locations have been incorporated into the individual units.
