Replica Rochester Landmarks

November 30th, 2015

Replica of Kodak World Headquarters, Rochester NY. [IMAGE:  ReplicaBuildings.com]
By Mike Governale

Searching for the perfect stocking stuffer this holiday season? How about an itty bitty version of Kodak tower? ReplicaBuildings.com manufactures replica scale models of famous buildings from around the globe. And two of them have been plucked right from Rochester’s skyline…

Replica of the old Genesee Valley Trust / Times Square Building, Rochester NY. [IMAGE:  ReplicaBuildings.com]
In addition to Kodak World Headquarters external link, the Genesee Valley Trust external link (Times Square Building) is also available. Each is cast in pewter and comes in a variety of sizes (anywhere from 3 to 6 inches tall) and finishes.

Replica buildings from ReplicaBuildings.com
And if you’re shopping for someone from out of town, ReplicaBuildings.com external link has over 800 well known landmarks including skyscrapers, churches, houses, department stores, monuments, government buildings, schools, factories, World’s Fair pavilions, train stations, bridges, and banks.

If it’s a building you’ve taken note of in real life, there’s a good chance they have it: Buffalo City Hall external link, the Niagara Mohawk Building external link in Syracuse, One World Trade Center external link, and even the twisty/bendy Mississauga Towers external link outside Toronto.

Best of all, if you’d like a model of your own building, house, monument, etc. they will make it – and you could make commission off the sales. Just send them a 3D computer drawing or pictures, drawings, renderings, blueprints, postcards – whatever you’ve got. Their modeler will build a 3D drawing which is then transferred to a Rapid Prototyping machine to create a highly detailed plastic master model. From the master, each model is then hand cast and finished “the same way it was done 100 years ago.”

Mike Merwine of Replica Buildings says pricing could range from $500 to thousands of dollars depending on the size and complexity of the subject. “Consider the Washington Monument external link as the low end to the Burj Dubai 100 external link as the other end.” If you’re interested, call 610-797-9444 to request a quote.

I’d love to see more Rochester landmarks available soon.

    How about Buffalo’s former Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Larkin HQ office building?

  2. John Zicari says:

    All well and good but where is Nick Tahou’s or Donuts Delite in this pantheon of buildings?
