The former Women and Children's Hospital is in new hands. Kaleida Health sold the property just a few days after successfully moving into the new Oishei Children's Hospital on the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus. A pair of local developers are partnering to breathe new life into the old hospital site in the Elmwood Village.

Western New Yorkers are well familiar with helicopter rides over Niagara Falls. But Buffalo's waterfront has gained so much parkland, expanded marinas, restaurants and housing, soon it may get a heliport.

Kaleida Health has replaced Ciminelli Real Estate with Nick Sinatra of Sinatra & Company and Ellicott Development, owned by Carl and William Paladino, to redevelop the Women and Children’s Hospital site off Elmwood Avenue on Bryant Street in Buffalo, once it becomes vacant.

When Peg Overdorf bought land along Ohio Street in 2006 for a park, there were a lot of people who thought she was crazy because everyone knew if Ohio Street was going anywhere, it was continuing downhill. However, public money has helped turn it around.

Not all brownfield sites are massive, former industrial facilities. A notable example in the city of Buffalo is 905 Elmwood Avenue, where a former gas station had become an environmental hazard.


The Bachelor Apartments are being torn down to make room for a $75 million dollar hotel, apartment and office complex to be built by Ellicott Development.

Apartment tenants are increasingly looking for parking spaces other than in a large lot where their cars can be covered with winter snow. That demand is leading to a surge in construction of indoor parking spaces.

Beginning Monday February 1, Ellicott Street between High and Goodrich Streets will be closed to vehicles and have limited foot traffic.

It's up to the Common Council if The Bachelor apartment building at Franklin and Tupper is designated as a landmark. That would seriously interfere with an Ellicott Development plan for a high-rise parking, hotel and apartment complex partly on the side.

When First Amherst Development began to convert the old Elk Terminal to apartments in 2003, there wasn't much in that Old First Ward neighborhood. Now, it's adding 23 more units.

A private deal between the Seneca Nation and Ellicott Development has cleared the way for sale of two city streets and a city agency building while maintaining access to a Seneca casino building.

Ellicott Development is planning a flagship project, a 12-story complex at the north end of the Theater District.

It's something which might not have happened in the economically weak Buffalo of a few years ago. Two significant players on the local economic scene have collided over the same property.

Another project spinning off from the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus is working its way through the development process.

Ellicott Development currently operates eight hotels and is planning more. The latest project would be located near Franklin and Tupper in downtown Buffalo.

Press Pass: Recalling a dismal day in downtown history

Mar 17, 2015

For many local residents it was a Saint Patrick's Day they would like to forget. On March 17, 1995, the doors closed for good on what was once AM&A's department store on Main Street. "It was probably the lowest point in downtown Buffalo," said Jim Fink of Business First during his monthly appearance on WBFO's Press Pass. For Fink, the anniversary serves as a reminder of how downtown life is on the upswing.
