More change is coming to the 100 block of Genesee Street. Two restaurants will be opening soon: Dog é Style at 128 Genesee Street and Marco’s Italian Deli across the street in the Genesee Gateway complex at 111 Genesee Street. Both will be opening about the same time as 600 Catholic Health employees settle into their new offices at Genesee and Oak streets.
There’s more on the way. Sienna’s Fred LoFaso reports strong interest in the attractive, recently-vacated corner building at 130 Genesee and is working on reuse plans for a larger redevelopment project for the vacant buildings that stretch along Oak Street north of Genesee.
In Genesee Gateway, sources say that a restaurant has signed a lease to join Marco’s Italian Deli, filling that complex’s first floor.
All the recent investment is good for block anchor Eddie Brady’s. Those same sources say that Eddie Brady’s will be constructing a kitchen addition to the rear of the existing building, freeing up space inside for about 50 new seats.
Across the street at 112 Genesee, the team renovating the three-story building into commercial space and five apartments report restaurant interest in that project.
They will all be tied together by an improved streetscape. Bidding for the City-led effort is expected later this year.
