 Button Lofts near completion


An exciting rehab project in the Monroe Avenue neighborhood in Rochester is nearing completion–the Button Lofts (by developer DHD Ventures). We got a sneak peek at some of the lofts that have been sensitively incorporated into this former button factory. All we can say is that the windows are huge, the views are stunning, and the spaces are unique. We’re ready to move in!  >>Take a look for yourself.
