Rocco Termini’s efforts to transform Chandler Street in Black Rock are moving along as redevelopment of 166 Chandler is coming into focus. An 8,990 sq.ft. single-story addition is being constructed on the west side of the four-story building. The addition will house Thin Man Brewery’s brewing operations. A tasting room in the existing building will have views of the brewing area. Thin Man will be canning at the location to distribute across the eastern United States. One floor of the existing building will house wood cask barrels with a banquet room serving specialty cask beers.
ODL Ortho Lab recently signed a five-year lease for 13,000 sq.ft. of space, taking the entire third floor and one-third of the fourth floor. ODL’s current 32 employees are currently located on Sheridan Drive in Williamsville.
Two other tenants have been announced. Salon in the City Suites will bring beauty and spa services to the blossoming area. It will house nine beauty professional suites that can be customized for each specific need of the suite ‘owner’. Husband-wife team of Jess Lasagna and Joe Hartrich will be opening a fitness center in the building. Originating in Australia, F45 Training combines elements of high-intensity interval training (HIIT), circuit training, and functional training.
Termini is also working with a potential restaurant tenant for space on the ground floor of the building. The restaurant would be bundled together with a taproom.
Termini purchased the 43,200 sq.ft. building in February 2016 for $250,000. BMS Design is the head designer and Schenne & Associates is engineer for the $4.7 million redevelopment effort.
