Live somewhere with an interesting story that you can tell people about! The remarkable history of this building tells a story about Eduard Kirstein who founded Shur-On, an optical manufacturing company. The Kirstein Building was built so that Shur-On’s headquarters could be placed here. By 1950, Shur-On became the largest producer of optical laboratory processing machinery in the country! They couldn’t produce 24-karat gold wire rim glasses fast enough. Shur-On eventually closed its doors in the 1960’s and since then, a few companies have been in and out. The Kirstein Building in Rochester, NY is now known for its luxury lofts and Craft Cafe in the lobby. So how did this building get its unique triangular shape? In the first couple decades after construction there were multiple additions and expansions to the existing building. The Kirstein Building has even been on the National Register of Historic Places list since October 4, 1985, shortly after their major renovation in 1984! This list is the US federal government’s official list of buildings, objects, and structures deemed worthy of preservation. WOW! Although you will find little evidence of the amazing history inside this building, it is still a great story to tell!
