URBAN LIFE ||

Looking for urban "big city" loft living here in Rochester? Currently, lofts in the city are few and far between and they are scooped up quickly. Even further, real estate that includes the beautiful downtown views are even more rare. Recently, the Rochesteriat was invited inside to see the only unit for sale currently at 1 Capron, which just happens to pair both the "big city" urban loft with those uncommon gorgeous views.

Kitchen If you love unique, urban spaces, this is definitely for you. High ceilings, hardwood floors, and exposed pipes, beams, and brick!

Kitchen 2 The kitchen is big and beautiful with all stainless steel appliances, a stone back splash, a built in oven and microwave....

Kitchen Oven ...and oh, did we mention the wine cooler?

Wine Cooler Gather with friends and family in the dining room and enjoy views that are unmatched in the city, with sunsets every night:

The Views at Capron Lofts Freddie-Sue Bridge Even though the ceilings may be over 11 ft tall, this space still feels intimate and cozy.

Capron Lofts Living There's a beautiful master bedroom, with a walk-in closet...

Master Bedroom : Closet your own master bathroom...

Master Bath and even a bathroom for your guests (no need to share)!

Guest Bathroom The second bedroom also makes a great office, workout room, art studio, or anything else you can dream up - if you don't have kids or a roommate.

2nd Bedroom: Office Rochester city living can be big and bold just like any major urban center, without having to deal with the dense population.

Capron Sunsets At the end of the day, put your feet up, and watch everyone else deal with their commute home to the suburbs...

Commute So whether you call it Center City, Downtown, or the Central Business District... you may just want to call it HOME!

And just like Manhattan's famous Washington Square Park, Rochester has its very own historic Washington Square Park. Why not live in the neighborhood and be a part of the history and the future of downtown Rochester?

If you love the City of Rochester and you want to live more local, then move downtown! Center City living offers what many suburbs can't - you can walk (or bike!) to work (if you work downtown), to restaurants, theatres, museums, parks, shops, and even art galleries (and soon - a grocery store!).

More Loft & Neighborhood Details: Unit also includes central air, a laundry room, 1 indoor garage parking spot, 1 parking spot in the outdoor covered lot, and access to the building's rooftop!

Hungry and you don't want to walk far? Nikko is on the 1st floor!

Contact Tracie Cristofori at Nothnagle Realtors for more information on this unit.

Are you someone who has a unique perspective of the world and would enjoy Center City living? Well then, the Academy Building just might be the place you've been looking for. Inside the Academy Building

With a history that spans 200 years, the Academy Building has roots that go deep -  Academy Building Rochester Ny

- and ceilings that stretch high (up to 18ft!).High Ceilings

On a Friday morning in mid-summer, developer and owner George Traikos was running around the halls of the Academy building personally attending to the final touches of this major redevelopment in Center City. Inside the Academy Building, Rochester NY

With much more on its way, the Academy Building will have wi-fi, a fitness center for tenants, a brand new front patio complete with tables and chairs, and even its own Yogen Fruz store. This is the beginning of the transformation of such a historic area of downtown, hopefully to ignite a movement of people and business coming back to our Center City. Thank you George Traikos!

Capron Lofts

Remember that big "Lofts for Sale" sign you used to see when you were crossing over the Freddie-Sue Bridge a few years ago? 

Well this is that building, 1 Capron to be exact. Close enough to Dinosaur BBQ and Geva Theatre, and tucked into a corner near the overpass of the 490 entrance and inner loop, 1 Capron is a converted warehouse structure repurposed for the city's growing demand for unique urban housing.

As part of the newly formed Washington Square Park Community Association, the area is on the mend and has come a long way since its days housing a former natatorium and a free public bath house at the turn of the 20th century. 1 Capron, also known as Capron Street Lofts, boasts some of the city's best views from its rooftop deck, a restaurant serving New American fare that includes fresh the Vesper burger on the first floor of the building, and the ability for residents to be within walking distance of most anything downtown has to offer.

Next time you're passing on the Freddie-Sue Bridge, you'll now know that there was something done to that "building with that big sign". All units sold out and the building is filled to capacity.

To learn more about the neighborhood, contact president@rocwashingtonsquare.org or visit their Facebook page.
