From Rochester Routes by Patricia Braus:

While the Ellwanger and Barry Building may not look imposing to modern eyes, this eight-story building made of Scotch redstone, brick and iron, seemed massive when it was built in 1887-1888. Constructed by the real-estate company formed by the noted nursarymen George Ellwanger and Patrick Barry, who made Rochester famous as "The Flower City", the building was designed by Andrew J. Warner and William Brockett, the team that also designed the Wilder Building.
From Paul McGee on Pinterest:
The Ellwanger & Barry building was constructed in 1888 by architect A. J. Warner. This eight story building housed the offices of historic horticulture firm Ellwanger and Barry Nursery Company. The nursery served not only the Rochester community but as far West as California and as far East as Japan, Korea, and Australia. This popular seed company is how Rochester earned its name, "The Flower City."
Located right next to the Monroe County Savings Bank.
