EFPR GROUP RELOCATING TO 100 SOUTH CLINTON AVENUE
Buckingham Properties Announces First Commercial Tenant at Former Xerox Tower
ROCHESTER, NY – Buckingham Properties is pleased to announce the first commercial tenant at 100 S. Clinton Avenue, formerly known as Xerox Tower. EFPR Group LLP, a full-service accounting and business services firm headquartered in Rochester, will relocate to renovated office space within the iconic downtown tower early next year. EFPR Group will occupy nearly 30,000 square feet, the entirety of floors 14 and 15.
Renovation work inside EFPR’s new space is already underway, with occupancy scheduled for February 2020.
EFPR’s 100 Rochester-based employees will enjoy stunning city views, surrounded by Center City’s growing list of restaurants and retail. Their offices will feature all new modern infrastructure, energy efficiency, and underground parking.
Originally constructed as the headquarters of Xerox Corporation, Buckingham acquired the 525,000 square foot office tower, along with the surrounding downtown campus in 2013 as a sale/leaseback transaction. After Xerox unexpectedly vacated the property last year, Buckingham Properties began pursuing redevelopment concepts to continue its dedication to revitalizing downtown Rochester.
“The Tower is a challenging building, in that it was originally built for one tenant,” said Richard Finley, president and chief operating officer of Buckingham Properties. “Our team has been working diligently to examine all options, and we are beginning to move forward with a multi-tenant, mixed-use concept. EFPR’s move to the Tower is an exciting step in that direction. We are thrilled to work with companies like EFPR who share our passion and commitment to downtown.”
“We are excited to partner with Buckingham Properties and the City of Rochester in the revitalization of downtown and this very unique property,” added EFPR’s managing partner, Jim Marasco. “It’s been thirty years since we left downtown, and we are looking forward to the opportunities it will offer.”
