Big Deal: Greenleaf Picks Up Delaware Apartment Building

Greenleaf & Company added 1165 Delaware Avenue to its apartment building portfolio yesterday.  The four-story building was purchased from 1165 Delaware LLC for $2,556,000.  1165 Delaware LLC didn’t own the property for long.  The investment group purchased the building in May 2011 for $2.32 million.  
The 57,000 sq.ft., circa-1925 building contains 65 apartments and is located at the northwest corner of Delaware and W. Ferry Street.  Greenleaf & Company and Paul Kolkmeyer of Priam Enterprises converted the former Lutheran Nursing Home at 1040 Delaware and converted it to 49 rental units and office space. The $5.5 million project opened in December.
Greenleaf is also planning to convert the former Spaghetti Warehouse building at 141 Elm Street into 38 to 40 loft apartments and 2,700 sq.ft. of commercial space.  Work on that project should be underway soon.

RaChaCha is a Garbage Plate™ kid making his way in a Chicken Wing world. Since 2008, he's put over a hundred articles on here, and he asked us to be sure to thank you for reading. So, thank you for reading. You may also have seen his freelance byline in Artvoice, where he writes under the name his daddy gave him [Ed: Send me a check, and I might reveal what that is]. When he's not writing, RaChaCha is an urban planner, a rehabber of houses, and a community builder. He co-founded the Buffalo Mass Mob, and would love to see you at the next one. He represents Buffalo Young Preservationists on the Trico roundtable. If you try to demolish a historic building, he might have something to say about that. He is a proud AmeriCorps alum.

Things you may not know about RaChaCha (unless you read this before): "Ra Cha Cha" is a nickname of his hometown. (Didn't you know that? Do you live under a rock?) He's a political junkie (he once worked for the president of the Monroe County Legislature), but we don't really let him write about politics on here. He helped create a major greenway in the Genesee Valley, and worked on early planning for the Canalway Trail. He hopes you enjoy biking and hiking on those because that's what he put in all that work for. He was a ringleader of the legendary "Chill the Fill" campaign to save Rochester's old downtown subway tunnel. In fact, he comes from a long line of troublemakers. An ancestor fought at Bunker Hill, and a relative led the Bear Flag Revolt in California. We advise you to remember this before messing with him in the comments. He worked on planning the Rochester ARTWalk, and thinks Buffalo should have one of those, too (write your congressman).

You can also find RaChaCha (all too often, we frequently nag him) on the Twitters at @HeyRaChaCha. Which is what some people here yell when they see him on the street. You know who you are.
