The Buffalo Planning Board on Monday night approved a plan by developers Chris Jacobs and Alan Dewart to build a new two-story headquarters office building on the edge of Larkinville for Roar Logistics.
The developers plan to construct a 12,020-square-foot office building at 535 Exchange St., with a 67-space asphalt parking lot, on a parcel next to the CSX railroad tracks at the intersection with Hamburg Street. It would then be sold to Roar, a transportation and logistics company owned by Rich Products Corp.
However, Roar executives have not yet made a final decision on whether to go with the $2.31 million project, which is also dependent on $87,500 in sales tax breaks and additional property tax breaks from the Erie County Industrial Development Agency. The ECIDA held a public hearing on the project on Monday morning, but will not vote on it until at least next month.
