Recent Events and Actions Taken

  • October 27, 2016 - "155 Chandler is envisioned as 80,000 sq.ft. of commercial space and potentially ten apartments.

Termini has commitments for a brewery and winery to occupy 30,000 sq.ft. of space and software development firm Utilant, a current tenant at his Foundry Lofts project, will take 25,000 sq.ft." Buffalo Rising
  • February 23, 2017 - "The 80,000 square foot campus would include rental space for budding tech companies, manufacturers, two residential apartments, a distillery and brewery." TWC News
  • July 2017 - Termini plans to spend $8 million on the conversion
  • July 2017 - 'State environmental regulators are now proposing an "expedited cleanup" of an old commercial building on Chandler Street. The Department of Environmental Conservation has backed an "interim remedial measure" work plan at 155-157 Chandler, starting this month, under the state Brownfield Cleanup Program. That's because the source of contamination can be "effectively addressed without extensive investigation and evaluation," according to a bulletin issued Wednesday...Plans call for excavation and off-site disposal of about 3,000 cubic yards of soil from the courtyard and vacant portions of the site, as well as removal of underground storage tanks and surrounding soil. The excavated areas will then be backfilled with cleaner fill materials.' Buffalo News
