COMMERCIAL/MULTI-FAMILY BRIDGE SQUARE PROJECT STATISTICS Client/Owner: Bridge Square LLC Architect: Passero Associates Structural Engineer: Jensen/BRV MEP Engineer: Picard Engineers Location: Rochester, NY Project Cost: $7,000,000 PROJECT DETAILS Spoleta Construction/Development and Passero Associates teamed up to renovate the historic S.B. Roby building, formally known as the Josh Lofton High School. The building was originally built in 1895 and consisted of 67,000 square feet. Then was converted into luxurious mixed-use, sustainable, modern office space and 24 loft-style residential living units located in downtown Rochester. The 24 loft apartments are on the third and fourth floors with 22 one-bedrooms and 2 two-bedrooms and range between 743 square feet – 1085 square feet. Spoleta required a design for the residential lofts that maximized the number of rental units while providing a highly desirable product. Open floor plans with large windows highlight all the apartments with views of downtown and the Corn Hill neighborhood. Rooms are efficiently sized, and no spaces are overly large. Within three months of completion, there was a 100% apartment occupancy. The project started in December of 2011. Passero aimed to move into their state-of-the-art office by the end of the year, occupying the second and partial of the first floor. Spoleta Construction turned the basement into a full underground garage for all of the 24 lofts, created a deck on the roof overlooking the City of Rochester, and equipped the building with the highest level of security. This project was not only successfully built but environmentally clean as well. With a huge demolition task, came a lot of waste. Spoleta Construction was able to successfully follow LEED gold certification and recycling over 75% of its waste materials. The building is Gold LEED certified by the United States Green Building Council.
