Preservation group seeks injunction to spare E.B. Green house

A preservation group plans to seek a preliminary injunction to further spare demolition of a home believed to be designed by famed architect E.B. Green on the northern edge of the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus.

Attorney Richard G. Berger, representing Campaign for Buffalo, History, Architecture & Culture, said the case will return June 15 before state Supreme Court Justice Diane Devlin when he will argue for a temporary restraining order to be converted to a preliminary injunction.

The group has sued the city and a company connected to BNMC Inc., which oversees the campus and is proposing demolishing a portion of the site for a possible second startup incubator.

Demolition of much of the former Osmose Holdings manufacturing structures surrounding the house at 980 Ellicott St. has begun.

The Buffalo Preservation Board is trying to secure local landmark status for the house.
