The Main Street Armory is by far the largest and grandest armory designed by Heins and is among the most sophisticated early 20th century armories in upstate New York. Reflecting Rochester’s prominent position in the state at the turn of the century, the East Main Street Armory is worthy of comparison to some of New York’s finest pre-World War II armories. The Armory’s first concert event was held on February 4, 2006, a sold out performance by O.A.R. More concerts followed later that year, as the refurbishment continued. The main arena was restored to accommodate an occupancy of 5,000 people. Part of the basement has been converted into a paintball facility and plans for a full arcade and private gun club are underway. The first floor’s west wing is currently being converted into a restaurant with an Italian-American Cuisine. This restaurant will be able to cater all future events and will operate before, during, and after events. The second floor has been turned into office space and banquet rooms, while the 3rd floor and remaining areas remain mostly untouched. Plans have been developed for usage of the rest of building, but remain plans until more funds are acquired.
