Bret Garwood, director of Rochester’s Bureau of Housing & Business
Development, on Thursday helped cut a ribbon to celebrate the launch of
Capron Street Lofts, a mixed-use residential and commercial condominium
building at 1 Capron St. He was joined by City Council members
Carolee A. Conklin and Dana K. Miller and developers Stephen Kiner and
Patrick Duffon, partners of Riverview Lofts LLC.
The condos, targeted
toward young, urban professionals and empty nesters, offer a big city
feel without the cost, according to the developers. The formerly vacant,
turn-of-the-century warehouse has been renovated into 19 new residential
condominiums, in addition to a restaurant, a parking garage, a gated
parking lot and a rooftop garden.
The condominiums feature exposed
wood beams, 12-foot ceilings, exposed brick, balconies and “flex” space
that can be used in several different ways. The interior is customized —
the developer works with each buyer to create their ideal loft-style
The $4 million project received $1.1 million in Restore New
York funds from Empire State Development Corporation.
