Rochester Technology Campus
In 1957, IBM began occupying the company’s Rochester campus. The property was designed by Eero Saarinen, a 20th-century Finnish American architect known for also designing the Gateway Arch in St. Louis, Missouri. Over the years, thousands of IBM’s U.S. patents have been created on site.
In 2018, IRG purchased the IBM technology campus, comprised of more than 3.1 million sq. ft. and 490 acres. IRG’s plan for the site envisions a dynamic, mixed-use, multi-tenant campus, which will bring businesses and job opportunities to the city. The site includes 34 existing buildings, including office, manufacturing, warehouse, data center and laboratory space. IBM has a long-term lease agreement for eight of these buildings on the eastern portion of the campus.
