LUXURY RESIDENTIAL UNITS
The architectural treasure was the home of City Hall for a century, until Rochester city leaders left in 1974 and moved City Hall a few blocks away to the old Federal Building on Church Street. That same year, the old City Hall building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places as part of the City Hall Historic District. The five-story work was renamed Irving Place in the 1970s when the building was renovated and converted into offices, retail space, and a bar restaurant in the lower level.
The Rockford, formally known as both Irving Place and Old City Hall, is a five-and-a-half story masonry building located at the northeast corner of South Fitzhugh Street and West Broad Street designed by Andrew Jackson Warner with an eclectic mix of Gothic Revival and Romanesque Revival stylistic elements.

Restored original windows promote energy efficiency and reduce waste, adding a touch of historic charm.
