The Lincoln Alliance Building stands as a monument to a time in the early 20th Century when city leaders envisioned Rochester New York joining New York City, Boston and Chicago as a major metropolis. This fifteen-story, 182,00 sf Beaux Arts tower was designed by the internationally known architectural firm of McKim, Mead and White. The facility opened to great fanfare in 1926. Constructed for Lincoln Alliance Bank, Rochester’s preeminent financial institution at the time, the handsome tower on East Main Street was one of seven large-scale commercial and cultural facilities designed by McKim, Mead and White in Rochester in the 1920’s.
The Lincoln Alliance Building project is a $21.9 million residential mixed-use certified historic rehabilitation that will restore the building’s four lower floors to approximately 40,000 square feet of high quality office and service retail space and convert the upper 10 floors to approximately 113 one and two bedroom full market-rate loft apartments. The penthouse will remain as is.
