Address: 2376 South Park Ave., Buffalo
Developer: Lactalis America Group Inc.
Description: Office addition to existing facility
Completion date: N/A
Lowdown: Lactalis America Group wants to expand its South Buffalo operation by constructing an addition to its office building.
The parent of Lactalis USA and Buffalo-based Sorrento Lactalis Inc. is seeking Buffalo Planning Board approval to build a 6,381-square-foot addition to its existing 19,352-square-foot building at 2376 South Park Ave. The one-story addition, which would match the rest of the facility in appearance, would be located to the east and north of the current building, on land currently occupied by a parking lot, concrete patio and lawn area.
The company would also put in a six-foot-high stockade-style wood or vinyl fence along the northern, northwestern and part of the eastern property lines. And new drainage and lighting would be added.
The 1.1-acre property is located directly across the street from a Lactalis production facility.
