The (infamous) One Sunset location near Gates Circle is sporting a “leased” sign. The former Locker Room bar, and later Lotis restaurant, has been vacant since Leonard Stokes’ One Sunset shuttered in October 2008 under a pile of debt and unpaid bills. The new tenant for the building at 1389 Delaware Avenue is unknown.
Elsewhere, a unique Main Street property is under contract. The mixed-use property at 1716 Main Street was profiled previously on Buffalo Rising here. A two-story building fronting Main that was constructed during the Pan-American Expo period includes 3,210 sq.ft. of commercial space and a stunning 4,200 sq.ft. second floor loft residence. A rear building was built thirty years later and recenlty served as an architectural workshop.
Margaret & Frank Fantauzzi purchased 1716 Main Street in 2001 and spent several years restoring the property. The name of the future owner is not known.
