Two Buffalo developers are partnering to construct a two-story back-office facility in Larkinville that could end up housing a transportation and logistics company.
State Sen. Christopher L. Jacobs, who owns Avalon Development, is working with Alan Dewart of Seneca Development & Management Corp. on a proposal to erect a 13,500-square-foot facility at 535 Exchange St., which Jacobs owns.
The 0.92-acre lot is zoned for railroad use and is vacant, but the developers want to change that to light industrial, according to an application to the Common Council. The neighborhood is already largely commercial and industrial, they note.
Dewart said they likely would build a "turnkey" facility that could be sold to the new occupant. The application does not identify the company, but notes that it "desires to remain" in Buffalo and that on-site parking is a "key element."
