Done Deal: Sheehan Residence Sold

The Sheehan Residence at 336 Linwood Avenue has been sold by the Diocese of Buffalo.  Mingo Junction Steel Works LLC paid $1.3 million for the property.  The LLC appears to be affiliated with Frontier Group of Companies.  The company has been involved with the development of 500 Seneca Street, Seneca Street Lofts, and Buffalo River Landing.

Proceeds from the sale will be devoted to the Retired Diocesan Priests’ Medical Benefits Fund. The three-story brick building at Linwood and Utica was originally built in 1928 as the rectory for what was then St. Joseph Cathedral on Delaware Avenue. The “New Cathedral” as it was known was demolished in the 1970’s and the former rectory has been used ever since as a residence for retired priests. The building features 12 suite-style units. There are three other diocesan residences for retired priests which can accommodate those now living at the Sheehan residence.

Sometimes the authors at Buffalo Rising work on collaborative efforts in order to cover various events and stories. These posts can not be attributed to one single author, as it is a combined effort. Often times a formation of a post gets started by one writer and passed along to one or more writers before completion. At times there are author attributions at the end of one of these posts. Other times, “Buffalo Rising” is simply offered up as the creator of the article. In either case, the writing is original to Buffalo Rising.
