The Jemal family sure loves Buffalo real estate. A Nottingham Terrace mansion sold yesterday for $1.425 million to Norman Jemal, son of Douglas Jemal. The 7,700 sq.ft. residence has five bedrooms and eight baths. Norman is Managing Principal of Douglas Development Corporation, the company undertaking redevelopment of Seneca One tower and conversion of the former Police Headquarters into apartments.
Karen Baker of Howard Hanna had the listing with a $1.499 million asking price. Details from the listing:

The new purchase is a block away from a home Douglas Jemal purchased in 2017 for $949,000. That home is currently for sale with a $1.025 million asking price, so it is unclear whether Norman will utilize the newly-purchased property or the purchase was made in his name and his father is simply moving down the street.
