Construction Watch: Buffalo Color Park

Ontario Specialty Contracting, Inc. has made good progress on repurposing the Schoellkopf Power House on Elk Street. The $15 million project will convert the historic building into an event center with a rooftop bar and restaurant, two apartments, and Ontario Specialty Contracting’s corporate offices.

The building is part of the 22-acre Schoellkopf Aniline & Chemical Co. property. Last year, the first phase of the Medaille Sports Complex opened on the site. It included a soccer/lacrosse field, bleachers for 500, an LED-lit scoreboard, a press box and lighting for night games. A 20,000 sq. ft. Athletics Administration Building was also built, which contains six locker rooms, classrooms, office and storage space, a concession stand, and fitness center.

Work has started on the second phase of the Sports Complex encompassing seven additional acres. It will include a baseball diamond, three softball diamonds, four dugouts, two batting cages, press boxes, scoreboards, and a multipurpose field with lighting for field hockey, soccer and lacrosse.

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.
