Fera’s Café is relocating from the Market Arcade in the Theater District. A lunchtime tradition in Western New York since the 1960’s when John Fera opened his first sub shop, Fera’s is moving to the atrium of the historic Electric Tower located at 535 Washington Street.
“The Electric Tower is the perfect place for us to carry on Fera’s traditions,” says Sue Priamo, the proprietor of Fera’s. “The level of quality and detail that went into restoring this historic building is a match for the Fera’s brand because we hold the same high standard for the food we prepare and service we provide. I think it will be a great place to call home.”
“We’re excited to have Fera’s coming to the historic Electric Tower,” Paul Iskalo, president and CEO, Iskalo Development Corp., said. “Their presence will serve to activate the Electric Tower’s grand, two-story lobby. With its various seating niches along the lobby’s many windows and availability of wireless internet, the addition of Fera’s will offer tenants and guests a wonderful space rich in natural light and architectural detail in which to work, meet, dine or simply relax.”
Fera’s Electric Tower Café is scheduled to open in April. Until that time, Fera’s will continue with its operations at the Market Arcade building.
The Electric Tower, located at 535 Washington Street, was acquired by Iskalo Development from Niagara Mohawk in 2004. Iskalo has returned the property to its original grandeur, starting with the restoration and reconstruction of the two-story lobby space and the build-out of tenant office suites. The building was rededicated in August 2007.
