The Red Jacket building and the Bosche Building, standing at the corner of Main Street and Allen, are looking a heck of a lot better these days. The one-two punch between Greenleaf (Bosche) and a developer duo (Red Jacket) has led to a sensational transformation of a corner that was once the poster child for apathy and neglect.
Two developers, Aaron Siegel of Franklin Asset Management and Brett Fitzpatrick of Somerset Properties, announced a $42 million renovation plan of 17 properties and 10 apartment buildings, including the Red Jacket building.

Not many people thought that the Bosche Building would stand long enough to contribute to the Buffalo renaissance.
BOSCHE LLC, an entity tied to Greenleaf & Company, is undertaking a $5.8 million redevelopment of the Bosche Building at 918 Main Street and an adjacent building it owns at 916 Main. Carmina Wood Morris designed the project.
The Bosche Building features an atrium accessible to all tenants, high loft-style ceilings and is handicap accessible.
