RIT will contribute to revitalizing the city of Rochester with a new Center for Urban Entrepreneurship in the heart of downtown. University leaders announced Oct. 22 they have acquired a landmark building, the former Rochester Savings Bank, which will serve as the new center and be converted into a multi-use venue for other RIT activities. RIT acquired the building at 40 Franklin St. through a donation from Rochester-based Broadstone Real Estate. The university has pledged to invest approximately $1.2 million in renovations in the four-story, 47,000-square-foot building.
