BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - A developer who has become a familiar name around town has big plans for North Buffalo. Rocco Termini wants to transform the Elmwood Avenue area, starting at Grote Street down to Hertel Avenue.
Tuesday morning, he proposed a series of incentives to the Erie County Industrial Development Agency. The project includes turning a former machine shop on Grote Street into lofts.
President of Signature Development Rocco Termini said, "We're trying to develop a walk-able, sustainable community there. We think that is a great area that has been overlooked for many years."
Termini said, "We would like to see it landscaped, walkways, bike paths, and make this a really live-able community."
Termini hopes to break ground on the Houk Lofts by April, and have the $6 million project completed by November. Work on the former FWS building will begin in late summer.
