List details properties in Buffalo ready for reuse

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – The City of Buffalo and the New York Historic Preservation Office released an inventory of historic buildings on Monday.

The list identifies properties that are ready for reuse and may be eligible for state or local historic tax incentives. Mayor Byron Brown released the report at the site of the former Spaghetti Warehouse on Elm Street, which is coming back to life.

“This is a long vacant structure that TM Montante is redeveloping. This is an $8 million investment in downtown Buffalo. And it’s just adding to the great development momentum that we’re seeing in the city,” he said.

The Elm Street project is known as “The Planing Mill.” It will house an engineering office and 22 apartments.

There are 571 buildings/structures that made the list, which you can view in full here. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
