Rochester’s Coolest Spaces

You don’t have to look far to find cool spaces in Rochester. From cutting-edge office designs to cleverly repurposed buildings to quiet outdoor spots hidden amid the bustle of downtown, there is no shortage of great spaces in which to work or play. The Rochester Business Journal asked our influential and connected readers to help us pick the coolest spaces in our region. We received dozens of nominations and our editors selected the top 30 based on each space’s appearance and function. On this website, you will have a chance to learn a little more about those winners and what makes them one of Rochester’s Coolest Spaces.
