Vacant for nearly eight years, redevelopment of 600 Delaware Avenue is nearing completion. Boasting a new red brick facade, a reworked entryway, and new windows, the building is soon to be the home of Alliance Advisory Group, Inc., a financial services firm now located in Amherst. The company received a $311,000 incentive package from the Erie County Industrial Development Agency to acquire and renovate the building and relocate its headquarters to the Delaware Avenue location.
The 21,300 sq.ft. two-story building officially changed hands in late October 2010 for $1.4 million. The previous owner was DANFB Associates, LLC, an affiliate of Benderson Development.
Alliance Advisory Group, Inc. and 600 Delaware, LLC are investing $2.75 million to purchase and rework the 60’s era office building which was formerly home to Rural Metro Ambulance. The building will house the firm’s current 35 employees as well as a an additional 15 new employees expected in the next two years.
Alliance Advisory Group, currently at 350 Essjay Road, is a financial services firm headquartered in Amherst with additional offices in Rochester, Syracuse and Jamestown. It is one of the top 100 private companies and one of the largest independently-owned financial services firms in Western New York according to their website.
