Kenmore contractor buys former Tonawanda machine shop property

A Kenmore general contractor has acquired a warehouse property in the City of Tonawanda from the owner of a now-defunct former machine shop business.

Paul Deck, owner of P&D Construction on Military Road, paid $700,000 through JEP Amherst 1354 LLC to buy the two-acre industrial property at 330 East Niagara St. from E.B. Trottnow Machine Specialities, led by President Mary A. Pietsch.

Trottnow closed after 70 years in business and hired Blackbird Auctions to sell its real estate and machine shop.Located just off the Colvin Boulevard Extension, the property includes a 28,000-square-foot manufacturing plant.

In other recent deals:

  • Dr. Christine S. Hoeplinger of Orchard Park, a dentist, sold the medical office building at 3626 Seneca St., along with two grassy vacant parcels at 3614 and 3616 Seneca, to the Zaphiris Family Limited Partnership of Erie, Pa., for $750,000.

The 6,856-square-foot, one-story building has up to 14 exam rooms and basement storage, and sits on 2.4 acres, with over 54 parking spaces.

  • Elma-based J&J Holdings of WNY, which includes Joseph S. Cattarin, paid $550,000 to buy a warehouse property at 65 Innsbruck Drive in Cheektowaga from Castine & Marchant of Williamsville, led by Gary and Judy Castine and their brother-in-law, Peter Marchant.

The parcel features a 12,520-square-foot building constructed in 1991. It's one of a pair of warehouse properties totaling 1.32 acres, with a total of 22,050 square feet of space, that was marketed for sale by Arista Real Estate & Development. The other building, at 61 Innsbruck, is still on the market, but Castine agreed to an easement for shared parking and a truck turnaround for Cattarin, who is president of Elevator Maintenance of Buffalo.

Current tenants include Window World, with 7,512 square feet, and Dejero Labs, with 2,400 square feet.

  • Dr. Thomas R. Elmer Jr. and Brian David Murphy, acting through 5579 East River Road LLC of Grand Island, sold a Tudor-style apartment building at 142 Saranac Ave. in Buffalo to Marino Estates of Kenmore for $690,000. The two-story, 12-unit building, with 11,748 square feet, was built in 1945. The buyer is controlled by Louis C. Greco and Joshua G. Soto.
  • Euro-America Foods, a food-service distributor in Tonawanda, paid $600,025 to buy the former Ontario Sales used-car dealership at 4450 Bailey Ave. in Amherst from William Julicher's 4450 Bailey Avenue LLC of Williamsville.
