Xerox Tower was built as Xerox's corporate headquarters in 1968. It no longer functions as their corporate headquarters, as they moved headquarters to Stamford, CT soon after the building was built. The building currently serves as headquarters for Xerox's North American Solutions Group (NASG).
This building is 30 stories tall with a height of 135 meters (443 feet), and is the tallest building in Rochester. Featuring mostly a minimalist style of architecture, the charcoal-colored building fans out near the bottom, taking up an entire city block on Clinton Avenue between Court Street and Broad Street. It used to have a red "Digital X" for the Xerox logo near the top of the building, but it was taken down in 2005 because the company wanted to stop using the Digital X. They changed the logo to XEROX, spelled out, at the base of the building, but they have not replaced the logo at the top. As of early 2008, the logo at the base of the building has been changed once again, to reflect a new corporate logo, which can be seen (as of April 2008) at Xerox.com.
