Completion Date

After sitting vacant for 25 years, the original Cunningham Carriage Factory located in the Susan B. Anthony neighborhood of Rochester, NY was transformed into a mixed-use campus with 71 loft apartments. This 73,000 square foot adaptive reuse project was renovated to provide safe, affordable housing with modern amenities while maintaining the original characteristics of the building. The brick veneer and atrium steel canopy were both fully restored. On the interior, much of the original post and beam construction, steel plates and wood planking were left exposed to highlight the history of the building. Environmental-sensitive, green technology was utilized in construction and rehabilitation. The renovation included a new stairway into the entry plaza, new entry doors and windows and an ADA accessible ramp. All existing windows were replaced with new insulated windows that satisfied NYS Historical Preservation guidelines. A decorative aluminum wall adorns the outside of the building. Each studio, one- and two-bedroom apartment features a fully equipped kitchen. Apartment complex amenities include a community laundry room, off-street parking, secure storage, a community room, and a computer room.
