Rocco Termini is working his magic in North Buffalo. After opening Houk Lofts on nearby Grote Street just weeks ago, he has turned his attention to the larger Distillery Lofts project at 1738 Elmwood Avenue. Once the home of FWS Furniture Company, and earlier the General Railway Signal Co., the complex is already looking much better after being scrubbed of its battleship grey color.
Rocco Termini’s Signature Development is converting the 100,000 sq.ft. building into 46 market rate apartments, 22,000 sq.ft. of commercial space, and a 10,000 sq.ft. restaurant/distillery. The mix of uses will surround a 3,000 sq.ft. interior courtyard. The former Houk Wire Wheel Company facility on Grote Street was converted into 22 one and two-bedroom apartments with rents ranging from $950 to $1,275/month. A high-end hair salon and tattoo studio occupy the 3,000 sq.ft. of commercial space in the building.
BMS Design is architect on both projects.
