On the Market: Historic Freight House

A major development opportunity is presenting itself in Buffalo. A 29,640 square foot brick freight house near the foot of Scajaquada Creek is now on the market. The brick structure is currently home to Atlas Steel and Steel Crazy. The historic freight house is perfectly situated near multiple other key developments, many of which are included on the listing:

Over $75 million in redevelopment projects nearby: $25 million at 100 Forest, $6 million at 1502 Niagara St., $14 million at 1360 Niagara St., $24 million at Rich Products, and $6.9 million at 960 Busti Ave.

This building is a prime parcel for development, especially considering its strategic location between Niagara Street and Amherst Street. This is an important connector between the two commercial districts.


Often times in other cities, these types of buildings become destinations unto themselves, with a central restaurant and offshoot retail opportunities. There is parking all along Tonawanda Street. On the backside, there is green space that could be perfect for patios and outdoor artisan events. The possibilities are endless with this one.


68 Tonawanda Street building specs:

29,640 sf (40′ x 741.5′) brick freight house
14’11” clear ceiling height
1.89 acres (83′ x 990′) zoned M2
Located adjacent to Rt 198 / Niagara St exit

Asking $750,000
