The existing site for the project is located at 770 West Main Street in Rochester, NY. The site is bordered by West Main Street to the south and Brown Street to the north, and is located in the historic Bullshead area of the City of Rochester.
The project site originally consisted of the two-story DePaul Mainquest drug addiction facility (constructed in 1993) and an attached three-story historic convent building (constructed in approx. 1910) that housed a portion of the administrative offices for the facility. The convent building was once a portion of the adjacent St. Peter & Paul Church property that is immediately adjacent to the convent building to the east.
The Mainquest building was demolished to construct Halstead Square, a three-story 75-unit SRO building fronting West Main Street to the south and Brown Street Apartments, a 24-unit affordable-housing apartment building on the north side of the site. The existing convent was renamed the Main Street Community Residence and was completely renovated with an addition added to the rear of the building to house 14 special-needs apartments.
