National Grid has returned power to the building and signs have gone up signaling asbestos abatement work is about to begin. The 10-story building would be anchored by a 300-room Wyndham hotel geared towards Asian tourists.


Queens-based Lanco H & L purchased the long-dormant property in November 2014 for $2.755 million. The firm, working with engineer John Schenne and backed by Chinese investors, is planning the hotel, six apartments, a spa, health care facilities, and restaurant space in the 350,000 sq.ft. building.

Sometimes the authors at Buffalo Rising work on collaborative efforts in order to cover various events and stories. These posts can not be attributed to one single author, as it is a combined effort. Often times a formation of a post gets started by one writer and passed along to one or more writers before completion. At times there are author attributions at the end of one of these posts. Other times, “Buffalo Rising” is simply offered up as the creator of the article. In either case, the writing is original to Buffalo Rising.
