The City should rename E. Huron Street after Iskalo Development. The company completed its purchase of the Old Editions Book Shop at 68 E. Hurson Street yesterday for $1.71 million. Old Editions’ owner Ronald Cozzi’s Main-Huron LLC was the seller. Iskalo is planning to bring a mix of uses to the complex. Old Editions relocated to Oliver Street in North Tonawanda.
The purchase adds to Iskalo’s holdings along E. Huron that include the former Oshun property at 5 E. Huron Street, Electric Tower, the building housing Big Ditch Brewing, a parking structure at E. Huron and Oak, and 256, 258 and 262 Oak Street.
Iskalo told The Buffalo News last year that it wants to add four apartments into the top two floors of the circa-1898 red brick portion of the Old Editions complex. The bottom two floors could be retail or commercial space depending on demand, or additional residential on the second floor. The adjacent two-story building, constructed in 1950, could be all commercial or a mix of commercial and residential space.
