Two projects received Buffalo Planning Board support that will bring new life to two Main Street buildings.
Ellicott Development is renovating a one-story building at 1269 Main Street for office space. William Paladino, Ellicott Development CEO, says the columned building’s façade will be renovated and new windows installed. A medical-services tenant has agreed to lease space in the building.
The building is part of the former home of Hein Publishing complex stretching from 1261-1285 Main Street that Ellicott Development purchased last May for $2.1 million. Nineteen new apartments are under construction on the third floor of 1285 Main Street next door.
In University Heights, the Planning Board recommended that the City Council approve David Carr’s plans to convert the former Third Base bar at 3264 Main Street into Nickel City Craft House. Carr says the restaurant will have a “modern beer garden style” and will showcase local craft beers.
Nickel City expects to open this fall.
