Opportunity: Commercial Space @ The Planing Mill

It’s been a couple of years since The Planing Mill was completed. Since that time, the mixed use building has helped to add to the residential life of Downtown Buffalo. The gorgeous circa 1878 building features 22 loft apartments and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The building is also a key component to the revival of the Elm Michigan Heritage Corridor.

Currently TM Montante Development is looking for proposals for a significant Class A commercial space within the building. The 4350 sq.’ space is, at this moment, still an open floor plan, which gives the future tenant a lot to work with.

C&S Companies, a full-service engineering firm, has moved into the initial 6,500-square-feet of office space.

As for the remaining footprint, there is dedicated parking available in the lot adjacent to the building. The Planing Mill is ideally situated in close proximity to much of the action in the city – it’s close to the Medical Campus, the Entertainment District, and the 33 and the I-190.


As for the building itself, much of the original character remains. They don’t build buildings like this anymore. These buildings are the key to unlocking the city’s full potential.

This is a great opportunity to be a part of the future of Buffalo. To see the adaptive reuse of these phenomenal historic structures is something that many people never thought would be realized. Today they are opportunities that are ready to go.
