Conley-Maass building clears first hurdle toward historic desgination

Conley-Maass building clears first hurdle toward historic desgination

The owners of the Conley-Maass building in downtown Rochester are hosting a free open house Friday night to celebrate the building's first step toward being listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The public is invited to tour the property and speak with project team members from 5-7 p.m. 

Once renovated, the 15,000-square-foot building will include an incubation laboratory that will offer high-tech entrepreneurs a space for collaboration. Two companies, Area 10 Labs and BrandHoot, have already signed leases for space in the building. The lower level will feature a soon to be announced restraunteer and executive chef, according to a news release.

The cost to renovate the building is expected to be around $2.7 million. Once the site is designated historic by the Department of the Interior, the owners will be able to apply for historic tax credits and grants, making them the first in Olmsted County to ever do so.
