Rochester is a unique city with a welcoming Midwest flavor, a small-town feel and an evergrowing sophistication. Nestled in the Zumbro River Valley, Rochester was discovered in 1854 by a government surveying party from Winona. Population at the time was 1,500 (30 times the original 50 settlers after an advertising campaign succeeded in extolling the land’s virtues). Rochester has been expanding and developing ever since, boasting a world-class medical center, expanding job market, cutting edge technology, excellent schools and a livable, safe environment. Money Magazine frequently votes Rochester “Best Place to Live in the U.S.” Since the first votes in the 1990’s, the city has grown 33 percent from a population of 86,000 to 114,011 plus (2016 U.S Census Bureau). The city is also considered a “Best Small City For Working Women.” Unemployment is low and salaries are higher than average, with women making 90 percent of men’s salaries.

RECESSION RESISTANT

As things change, some things stay the same, and it’s all good for Rochester. In 1961, Sales Management magazine listed Rochester as one of its “markets on the move,” pointing out

that the city was moving forward while much of the country was in a recession. Urban and economic theorist Richard Florida recently ranked Rochester among the top 20 metros with projected job growth in “creative class” jobs—health care, science, technology, law, education, the arts and media—through 2020 (The Atlantic). Rochester’s quality of life and prosperous business climate make it a desirable place to live and work. Cost of living is 7 percent lower than the U.S. average. Its commute is the shortest—average 14 minutes—of the nation’s 300 largest cities. There’s an excellent park system for walking, biking and outdoor family activities. “Historic Bluff Country” to the south, the Mississippi River to the east, rolling farmlands to the west, and the Twin Cities to the north border Rochester and neighboring communities.

MAYO CLINIC, IBM

A devastating tornado struck Rochester in 1883. William Worrall Mayo, the country doctor, sought help from the Sisters of St. Francis to care for over 100 injured patients. When the crisis passed, Mother Alfred Moes offered to raise money to build a hospital if Dr. Mayo and his sons, Will and Charlie, would serve as surgeons. Today, Mayo Clinic is the largest not-forprofit medical center in the world. The Clinic employs nearly 34,600 people at its

City on the Move Rochester campus. Approximately 2,400 are physicians and scientists. The opening of Mayo’s Gonda Building in 2001 created the largest interconnected medical facility in the world. Opened in 2015, a $188 million, 100,000-square-foot proton beam therapy center offers innovative cancer treatments. IBM, like Mayo Clinic, is an “anchor” company in Rochester. “Big Blue” broke ground in 1956. Employees number around 2,790 (2013), two times more than the number of employees in the 1950s. The main campus has grown to 3.1 million square feet, more than half the size of the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia. Other major employers include Charter Communications, City of Rochester, Federal Medical Center, Kahler Hotels, McNeilus Truck & Manufacturing, Olmsted County, Olmsted Medical Center, and Seneca Foods.

INNOVATION, GROWTH, INVESTMENT

Destination Medical Center (DMC) is the biggest and boldest expansion plan in Rochester’s 164-year history. With the world-renowned Mayo Clinic in the city’s backyard, DMC is a $5.6 billion economic development initia-

tive promoting Rochester as a premier global destination for health and wellness over the next 20 years. Three million people a year visit Rochester, primarily for Mayo Clinic. The goal of DMC is to double the number of visitors to 6 to 7 million. Downtown development has been a topic of conversation since the famous Chateau Theater opened its doors in 1927. DMC plans include additional downtown Mayo facilities, office space, biotech and pharmaceutical firms. Housing, restaurants, hotels, and retail establishments will be needed to accommodate visitors and the employees required to fill over 30,000 new jobs. DMC, according to plan, will have a positive affect not only Rochester, but also Olmsted County and the state of Minnesota. In addition to the $585 million in state money, Mayo Clinic, private investors and the City of Rochester will invest nearly $6 billion. With changes on its horizon, Rochester must continue fine-tuning its goals to meet the inevitable challenges ahead: aging and retiring Baby Boomers, diversity, affordable housing for students and job seekers, transportation, crime and population increases. If history is an indicator, Rochester’s growth will continue on a positive, upward trend.
