About The Academy Building Lofts

Constructed in 1873, The Academy Building once stood strong as Rochester’s first public high school. Throughout the generations, the building experienced many different lives, becoming a Municipal Court, City School District Headquarters, and, eventually, private office space.

The Traikos Group purchased the property in 2007, converting the space into luxury housing, office, and retail space in 2012. While in the design stage, we prioritized comfort and practicality while incorporating modern standards and flair. Our goal was to create a living environment that we, ourselves, would love coming home to — which we believe we have achieved.
