Very Near East Side Success Story...

While checking out the 400 block of Ellicott Street this week, I had the opportunity to chat with a few business owners about development and business issues. Longer post later this week about a cool business that now employs 34 people.

Let's see if I make it to the roof of this amazing block!

Maureen's has great flowers at excellent prices. It is quite an operation. The brick buildings along Ellicott St. as well as both sides of Genessee St. between Oak and Ellicott are amazing. A neat little community could be formed if the buildings owned by Genrich would be reused.

Rox,

Lots of time walking around here recently. It would appear as though the two buildings at 85 & 91 Genesee - to the west of Eddie Brady's - are actually causing Genrich's property values to fall. Then, what do I know...

Hear that a demolition permit is being secured as we type for 85 & 91 Genesee...

On a slightly brighter note, the sale of the building across the street at 112 Genny is pending. It is owned by Steve Calvaneso (sp).

those places are total crap. who owns them. If I were Genrich, I'd be pissed.

Fix Buffalo,

I'm sure the buildings at the end that blew over several years ago don't help, but it's laughable to blame any drop in value to those buildings (which are separated by Eddie Brady's). It could very well be that the continued physical deterioration of his properties due to prolonged exposure to the elements is responsible for the drop in values. Perhaps the value of his properties rose due to Termini's conversion of the Buffalo Alterntive School more than any decrease attributable to the ruins by the ICON...

WCP,

Glad to hear about the pending sale. I was sorry to see C2 move their headquarters from that location to somewhere out on Transit. Also, I thought it would have been interesting for Calvaneso to house his restaurant offices in that building. Any word on the new owner and/or possible tenant?
