Recent Events and Actions Taken

  • The prospective buyer of 101 Depew Avenue is seeking Preservation Board approval to demolish it to construct a new single-family home on the lot. Has been for sale with a current $269,900 asking price. Buffalo Rising
  • From the demolition application submitted by real Estate agent Rocco Delgrosso: "The current single family residential structure has fallen to disrepair. Both the interior and exterior conditions of the structure would require significant expense to renovate and/or repair and replace each area to suitable condition. We hereby respectfully request permission to demolish the in place structure to pave way for construction of a new (architecturally consistent) single family home." Buffalo Rising
