Renovation Planned for 249 Allen

A non-descript, one-story building at 249 Allen Street is in for a makeover. Owner Mark Goldman is planning extensive improvements for the building’s façade. Friends of the Buffalo Story will use the building as an exhibit space.


The renovation, prepared by Bailey & Harris Architects, includes:

  • Removal of the existing brick facade and windows,
  • Creation of new door and window locations in a newly constructed emu wall with brick veneer
  • New signage and lighting
  • Aluminum storefront and clear glass windows

Friends of the Buffalo Story is a citizen-based organization. FOBS’s work is rooted in heritage-based, site-specific placemaking, offering arts & cultural programs connected to historical Buffalo locations such as Canalside. Their goal is to integrate heritage and place-making by connecting people to their story at the places where those stories took place.

The Preservation Board will review the plans at its meeting on Thursday.

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.
