Accentuating the Rochester skyline, Midtown Plaza was designed by Victor Gruen and dedicated on April 10, 1962 as the first downtown indoor mall in the United States, attracting international attention including a feature on NBC-TV’s Huntley-Brinkley Report. Eventually becoming a victim of changing tastes in consumers, the mall closed its doors on July 29, 2008, and many times was slated for demolition. However, in 2011, Buckingham Properties and Morgan Management purchased the building with plans to develop it into a $75M downtown mixed-use landmark featuring both residential and commercial space. Today under its new moniker - Tower280 - the property features 180 high-end contemporary studio, 1 bedroom and 2 bedroom apartments, as well as 1 and 2 bedroom penthouses. Each unit is accented with quartz countertops, ceramic tile backsplashes, plank wood-look flooring, deluxe hardware and lighting packages, and spacious rooms. Additionally, the property has underground heated parking (perfect for winters in upstate New York), a rooftop terrace with grills, rooftop dog park, concierge service, state-of-the-art fitness center and more.
