Investment Complements "Finger Lakes Forward" - The Region's Comprehensive Strategy to Revitalize Communities and Grow the Economy

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced that software development enterprise LiveTiles has selected the City of Rochester's Downtown Innovation Zone to establish its North American Intelligent User Experience ("IUX") Hub. The company chose the City of Rochester over North Carolina and other locations in the Eastern United States. The $17 million project will result in the creation of at least 500 new jobs over the next five years, 60 of which have already been created in recent weeks. The project is expected to be completed in March of 2023.

"Our strategic investments in downtown Rochester are transforming the Finger Lakes into a hub of high-tech innovation and developing the next generation of business leaders," Governor Cuomo said. "LiveTiles' decision to establish their North American Hub in Rochester's Downtown Innovation Zone is proof positive that our economic development investments to drive growth and enterprise are working, and this state-of-the-art company will bolster our efforts to move the Finger Lakes economy forward."

The new IUX Hub will be located in Rochester's High Falls District at 61 Commercial Street. The expansion project will include outfitting the new facility and hiring new employees. Staff will range from client-side teams such as customer success managers and business development roles, to technical teams such as solution engineers and AI (Artificial Intelligence) deployment specialists. These teams will also support the rollout of additional platform offerings that are currently under development.
