“We’re seeing great momentum throughout the City of Buffalo, and this development will be yet another vital addition to the region’s urban core,” said Denise Juron-Borgese, Vice President of Development and Planning, Ciminelli Real Estate Corporation. “We’re excited to partner with Tops to bring another dynamic, fresh food option to downtown Buffalo, one that will provide convenient access to folks on the City’s adjacent East Side as well as residents and employees in the Central Business District. We hope to welcome a great turnout on December 1st as we present our thoughts and plans to those in and around the area.”
Area business owners, community partners, nearby religious organizations and churches, neighboring developers, elected officials, and individuals interested in learning more about the proposed project are invited to attend the session.
Ciminelli Real Estate Corp. was designated developer for the City-owned site in February. Ciminelli is working with Tops to anchor the project with an appoximately 20,000 sq.ft. market that will also include residential and commercial space. The 2.54 acre site is one of downtown’s largest surface parking lots.
