Last October after culling through dozens of emails - I routinely post City of Buffalo owned property to Craigslist - I located a group of investors. Invited them to Buffalo, had dinner with Antoine Thompson, local Council person and got really close to a deal. They stepped away recently yet we still have the local architect's feasability study which will help the next individual or group interested in taking on this project.
Remember, the Woodlawn Row Houses are directly across the street from the new home of Performing Arts HS - a 30m public investment in the arts and education. Here's the map...you can't get any closer.
Here's the archive - Woodlawn Row Houses - to see Buffalo's best example of 'demolition by neglect' of a City owned local-landmark. After 31 months of calling this to the City's attention, the place is still wide open. Suggestions? Let me know.
