Washington, D.C., developer Douglas Jemal, who hopes to revitalize the vacant One Seneca Tower downtown, now is a Buffalo Niagara homeowner.
Jemal, who has plans for a $100 million redevelopment of the 38-story Main Street skyscraper, purchased a home at 45 Nottingham for the listing price of $949,000 on June 30, according to documents filed with the Erie County Clerk's Office. The house had been on the market since early April, according to listing information on realtor.com.
Jemal hopes to convert the One Seneca Tower into a mix of apartments, retail space, restaurants and offices.
He purchased the four-bedroom, 3.5-bath home from Michael Halberstam and Katherine E. Brown. The 4,464-square-foot home, built in 1928, last sold for $640,000 in 2009.
