The Rose Building is a historic commercial building at 307 Main Street in Little Rock, Arkansas. It was built in 1900 from the plans of George R. Mann, and is named for Arkansas Supreme Court Chief Justics Uriah M. Rose. It is a prominent local example of commercial Classical Revival architecture. The building was built originally as an office property and by the early to mid twentieth century housed retail when the city's Main Street was the major shopping district.[2] It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1986.[1]

The building is currently owned by private investors, who acquired it in 2002. It is managed and represented in the commercial real estate (CRE) market by the national CRE investments and development organization, Doyle Rogers Company.
