Sinatra and Company Realty is almost complete with their first phase of rehab to the former Fenton Hotel.  Located on West Ferry, between Main and Linwood, the building has 23 apartments that will be ready for occupancy within the next few weeks.  All of the units are already leased, with rents averaging $1,300 per month.


With phase one almost complete, they will now begin to focus on the building at 1526 Main Street.

Genesee Gateway district adds more restaurants this summer

The Genesee Gateway district in downtown Buffalo is about to welcome a new deli.

Marco’s Italian Deli will be leasing a portion of the first floor in the Genesee Gateway Building, with the intent of opening this summer. That ties in with Catholic Health moving into its new corporate headquarters and training center, almost across Oak Street. Marco’s is leasing 4,000-square-feet facing the Genesee and Oak street corner of the building.

Marco’s joins a growing list of new restaurants planned not only along the Genesee Gateway stretch but also along downtown’s 500 block of Main Street.
