Empire Delivering New Location at Historic Cannery Redevelopment

Empire Commercial Construction is completing construction of the new Smokin’ Hot Chicks BBQ location at the redeveloped century-old factory building in the Village of Fairport that once held the American Can Company. The redevelopment is being led by Rochester-based Donohoe Management, with leasing directed by Caliber Commercial Brokerage. Empire and Hanlon Architects teamed for design and construction of the 4,200 square-foot interior restaurant build-out located at 25 Parce Avenue and 75 North Main Street, Suite 170. Completion is anticipated for mid-December, 2020.

“Empire is excited to team with Smokin’ Hot Chicks BBQ and The Cannery to help deliver another thriving local business to this growing development,” said Jayne Penepent, president of Empire Commercial Construction. “From the fiesta selections of owner Shannon Miller’s Southern California heritage, to piping hot, mouthwatering BBQ, the Fairport Community is in for a mouth-watering treat.”

Smokin’ Hot Chicks BBQ joins a series of phased openings by other businesses at The Historic Cannery including: Faircraft Brauhaus, Compane Trattoria, Challenge Athletics and D1 Sports Training.

“Canco,” established in 1908, was the backbone of the community’s industrial growth through the late 1980’s. The Historic Cannery project overall features significant improvements to the exterior, including construction of a 6,780 square-foot elevated boardwalk to provide direct pedestrian accessibility to all building tenants. Further demolition, abatement and renovations of the 61,000 square-feet created several new tenant spaces, rooftop deck, loading dock area, courtyard and over 200 parking spaces.
