Actually appears two-dimensional from some angles. Note the cables from the Liberty Pole on the left.

The Temple Building is an interesting building downtown in the Main and Clinton neighborhood. It is a 14-story skyscraper that, bizarrely, contains a 9,000 square-foot Gothic cathedral at its base. It was renovated into lofts and commercial space by Costanza Enterprises in the mid-2000s. Amenities include advanced security features, in-suite laundry, high-speed Internet, and a private, heated indoor garage.
Its history may be found here.
A runway show was held in the Temple Building during Fashion Week of Rochester 2013 as part of its "Refashioning Rochester" theme. It featured Tommy_Lee as DJ. According to the Democrat and Chronicle:
This year, the idea is to showcase the reuse of older buildings and a resurgent downtown—evidence that Rochester is following housing trends along with style trends. A new generation of homebuyers and renters, here and nationally, is looking to live in greener ways, surrounded by old-world character that can best be found by moving to a city's core. Even empty Rust Belt downtowns in cities such as Cleveland are reenergizing into cultural centers filled with repurposed housing, arts offerings and dining options.1

2005-11-01 10:29:58 From what I've heard and seen, this is more of the 'Luxury Loft Apartments/Condo's" that are springing up all over. From what I've seen, I'm wondering where and what demographic they are expecting to fill them. —FarMcKon
2005-11-01 16:02:15 I'm that demographic- young, urban, and looking for a large and modern apartment. —AdamLynch
2005-11-02 10:23:22 Young, urban, and rich enough to spend $900 a month on a 1br apartment! I'm going to ask you to buy if you ever show up for one of our drink-and-edit sessions. —FarMcKon
2005-11-04 15:34:24 $900/mo? you can't be serious. —TobinFricke
2005-11-05 15:31:01 Is the 'cathedral' consecrated and/or functioning or open to the public ever? —JonRobins
2005-11-08 19:03:06 FarMcKon: Not a problem at all. :-) Got one coming up? —AdamLynch
2007-04-15 17:20:09 Looking at the photographs of the building, my impression is that the "temple" is at the top of the building, and not at the base. —DavidHowe
