ROCHESTER, N.Y., March 25, 2013 - Cushman & Wakefield, Inc. and its alliance partner Pyramid Brokerage Company of Rochester, Inc. are pleased to announce the availability of 2600 Manitou Road, an 800,000-square-foot high-tech office, lab, and manufacturing facility.
2600 Manitou Road is situated on a 100-acre campus in the Town of Gates, a suburb of Rochester, N.Y. Nearby major highways include the New York State Thruway (I-90), along with Interstate expressways I-390, I-490 and I-590. The region has been home to such international businesses as Kodak, Bausch & Lomb, Xerox, Paychex, Harris RF, Wegmans and Pictometry, as well as many noteworthy educational institutions such as the University of Rochester and the Rochester Institute of Technology.
The building was formerly utilized as a research and manufacturing facility and offers a mix of high-end corporate and traditional office space, wet and dry lab areas, and pristine manufacturing space. "It is a high-tech facility that is adaptable for a variety of uses," said John J. Manilla, President of Pyramid Brokerage Company of Rochester, Inc.
The property provides a strong corporate identity for a single user, and lays out well for multiple tenancies. "Ideally, we would seek a single user, but we have developed plans for re-purposing the building and subdividing it," added Fred Brunswick, Senior Director of Cushman & Wakefield.
