Rochester’s best workplace just got even better. On November 1st, First American opened its new doors at 211 High Point Drive in Victor, NY. The equipment finance company built its inventive new headquarters to accommodate growth and the evolving work environment.
The building sits atop one of the highest points in the Rochester area, overlooking western New York’s beautiful rolling hills and fall foliage.
211 High Point is a modern, four-story building with a large glass entryway. First American will occupy the top three floors, about 85,000 sq. ft. of the 150,000 sq. ft. space. The office will be home to over 90% of the company’s 285 colleagues, with room to grow in the coming years.
The office is encompassed with floor-to-ceiling windows, unique collaboration spaces, over 20 virtual meeting studios and state-of-the-art conference rooms to accommodate hybrid work. The main feature of the building is its central hub staircase with honeycomb lighting and a plant wall spanning two floors. Colleagues are excited to take advantage of the outdoors in the new space, with a second-floor heated patio and walk-off access to hiking and cross-country ski trails. A colleague-led team made the design decisions in the space with three themes in mind: collaboration, flexibility, and the future of work.
The building is owned and operated by Rainaldi Brothers, the visionaries behind many of the up-and-coming new spots around Rochester. First American collaborated with Hanlon Architects, Genesee Construction Services, the Ontario County IDA and many local businesses to bring the building to life.
