Rochester, NY -- A historic downtown building has reopened its doors after a 7-year overhaul.
Built in 1873 the Academy building served as Rochester's first public high school.
Now the redeveloped four story building holds 21, one to three bedroom apartments and 6-thousand square feet of commercial space.
George Traikos of developer Fitzhugh Associates, says that the building was in really rough shape when work started seven years ago.
The new residential and comercial space at the site is still available for rent.
