Wrecker Watch: Swan Ramp Coming Down

Ellicott Development is demolishing the ‘Mobile Swan Garage’ at 40-48 Swan Street, across from Sahlen Field and between ECC’s City Campus and the Ellicott Square Building. Demolition of the circa-1924 building was approved by the Preservation Board in December.  The site is located within the Joseph Ellicott Historic Preservation District.

Demolition leaves three structures on the block: a firehouse, the Union Pub building on Swan Street that Ellicott Development bought last week, and the building housing Washington Square on Ellicott Street. The Swan Street gaps may not be empty for long. Ellicott Development is considering plans for a new parking ramp for the block that may include other uses.

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.
