Record Theatre Portfolio Up for Grabs – Three Investment Opportunities At Hand

Three significant Main Street buildings are currently for sale. The buildings are all part of the former Record Theatre real estate portfolio.

This past December, the entire portfolio went up for auction, but the owner didn’t get the value that they wanted, according to Todd P. Danni, Associate Real Estate Broker at Hanna Commercial Real Estate. Instead, Danni broke up the parcels. “The buildings are very different – selling them individually might appeal to smaller investors  and different uses,” he said.

There is an incredible opportunity to transform these buildings into significant parcels that add value to other nearby developments. The corner of Main Street and Lafayette is close to Lancaster Square, as well as Canisius College. It’s also on the Metro Rail route, and not far from the Medical Campus.

The facades of a couple of these buildings need a major overhaul – it would be interesting to see what lies beneath the surface.
