castle school conversion trend is continuing. Savarino Companies is in contract to buy the former St. Clare Roman Catholic Church School at 169 Elk Street in the Valley Community not far from SolarCity’s RiverBend site. The striking 15,400 sq.ft. building is owned by the Diocese of Buffalo.
Preliminary plans call for restoring the exterior to the original look including adding back now blocked up windows. The interior will be renovated into 11 market-rate housing units with a portion of the first floor used for a commercial/community tenant.
Savarino officials are currently soliciting community input and expect to submit to the City Planning Board for approval soon.
