Garrett Leather Corp., which relocated to Cheektowaga from its longtime home along the Niagara River in Buffalo, now has a brand new corporate headquarters.
Concept Construction Corp. completed extensive renovations and reconstruction work on Garrett’s 70,000-square-foot facility at 75 Boxwood Lane.
The $2 million project, which lasted eight months, included a complete upgrade to the interior space, as well as an addition to the building, which features a glass-enclosed main entrance and lobby, a showroom gallery and office space. Besides new walls, ceilings, floor coverings, lighting and mechanical upgrades, the building also has solid-glass interior doors standing 9 feet tall, with door handles wrapped in – of course – hand-woven Italian leather.
Garrett’s former location, at 1360 Niagara St. in Buffalo, has been acquired by Ciminelli Real Estate Corp., which is converting it to apartments.
