More Coe Place for-sale

24 Coe Place just went on the market! If you plan on attending the Artspace Party tomorrow, check it out. Direct your calls to the owner - 716.699.5223. The house is located in the middle of the City's coolest little neighborhood.

According to the City's website, 24 Coe Place is a two-family home that was purchased by its current owner in 1995 for $4,500. It's currently assessed at $10,000.
Chris Hawley's Midtown: Poised for Renaissance captures the character of Coe Place perfectly:
Coe Place is the most historically and urbanistically significant street in the Midtown neighborhood. At one time a brick pedestrian pathway, converted to a residential street by a quixotic nineteenth-century skating rink operator, Coe Place is a charming, very narrow street, originally no more than fifteen feet wide, lined with a collection of close-knit Queen Anne-style houses whose singular attributes are unmatched anywhere else in Buffalo. read the rest...
Here's the map for 24 Coe Place and proximity to Artspace. If you're new to the area and want an investment tour, e-mail me. I do this often.
  • update...These two very vulnerable Coe Place properties are available, too. Four Coe Place properties have sold in recent months. One house for $1500.00 and three houses, in a package, for $10,000/house.
See the Coe Place archive for additional issues and developments.
  • update...9/9/06 12:30pm...just got off the phone with Tom, the current owner. New mechanics on the inside of this Coe Place beauty. Two one bedroom apartments! Tom's e-mail. Hurry, it won't last!

Just curious- do you know the asking price? With the recent sales and this beauty on the market (and the threatened MBBA homes), Coe is truly at a cross-roads. Wonder what it would take to make Coe a Phase II of ArtSpace- have them purchase the homes that are on the market. Artist cottages anyone?

Chris,

Don't know the asking price yet, imagine it to be in the mid 30's...

Any thought how we can unbundle the 28 & 39 from MBBA's grasp?

btw...you missed a great party at Artspace this afternoon...

I was hoping that someone would fly me home to cover the ArtSpace event. HA!

Chris Brown is dealing with a property on Porter where MBBA has a lien. He even has a buyer lined up for it I believe. It sounds like a long process- but It's possible. Call Chris, his contact info is on the KCA website.

Have you been inside this house by chance? If so, what's its condition overall? Would it be necessary to retain all the concrete up to the house's foundation? Can't all be city property.

spoke with Tom, the owner the other day. He described his work as a total rehab, about 10 years ago.

Haven't looked at a deed for any of the Coe Place properties yet...so can't answer the question.

Most of the concrete is City property; the lot is only 48 feet deep and the house occupies almost all of it.
