Welcome to SKY Armory

An idea formulated about 5 years ago by event planners who saw a need in the Syracuse market for a chic, urban event space of the kind that New York, Boston and other major cities boast of.  A place that was a blank canvas that could become anything, an extraordinary anything…

This idea percolated over the next 2 years, when we decided it was time to ‘Go Big or Go Home.’ This blog is our story as we leave the idea stage and move into reality. 

2 years ago we started looking for the right building, an adventure in itself. We started feeling like Goldilocks – this one is too big, this one doesn’t have enough egresses for public assembly, this one doesn’t have enough parking… We finally landed on a downtown building that was in great shape and met our criteria for space and location that was attached to a parking garage. We were getting excited, while trying to remain neutral and not get attached if things didn’t work out.

Well, we now own a building on the same block as the Landmark Theatre and the Pike Block Project.  A new and very grand entrance will be built on the back of the building so SKY Armory will spill out into the hub of Armory Square. There will be 2 floors of ballrooms with hardwood floors, exposed brick, exposed rafters and a view of downtown Syracuse. We’ll be able to accommodate intimate events for 100 guests to grand galas for up to 1,200 guests. 

We hope to be open by December 2013 but to be on the safe side we are booking events in February 2014 and beyond. Call us at 315.473.0826 for your event.
