Sold! 319 Connecticut Street

The West Side just got a big boost with the sale of one very significant vacant property. The big ticket sale is found at the southeast corner of Connecticut and Plymouth. This wonderful historic brick structure with mansard roof has been the subject of a lot of conversations and debates over the last few years. Since the previous owner passed away, it has been sitting in limbo, awaiting its fate. Unfortunately, the price tag for 319 Connecticut Street was out of reach for everyone that considered a purchase. At one time the asking price was over $650K.

So often, time can be a foe of forlorn historic structures. Not in this case. In this case, it seems as if time was on the side of Buffalo Connecticut Holdings, which just bought 319 Connecticut Street, along with 323 Connecticut Street and 257 Plymouth Street – two adjoining vacant lots. The combined sale for the three properties was $450K. That’s a pretty good deal considering the original asking price for 319 Connecticut Street. 

  • 319 Connecticut Street – 9400 sq. ft. (four & attached two story brick bldg.)
  • 323 Connecticut Street – 35 x 116 (vacant lot east of bldg.)
  • 257 Plymouth – 25 x 149 (vacant lot behind bldg.)

With the sale of these three lots, via Jay Newman at Hastings Cohn Real Estate, Connecticut Street will get another incredible boost of energy. I am told that the new owner is excited about the future of the mixed-use property, and has the ways and means to create a new energy and vibrancy for the corner. This building is located just down the street from the Horsefeathers Building, and is also very close to D’Youville College.
