BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — The Bosche building has been transformed. The building, located at 916 Main Street, was constructed in the late 1800s and carriages used to be built there. Now, Buffalonians can call it home.
There was a ribbon cutting today, signifying the official reopening of the historical building. The mayor was on hand as well as the CEO of Greenleaf, the development firm behind the remodel.
Greenleaf’s CEO, Jim Swiezy, purchased the building in 2007, long before anything was really happening in that area. Now, it’s one of the hottest pieces of real estate as it is directly across from the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus.
“I just loved the building,”said Swiezy on why he purchased it so long ago. “It had a lot of character. I didn’t really have an intended purpose for it when we bought.”
Now, it is 23 upscale lofts. A few come with attached outdoor space with downtown views. There is common-shared outdoor space for all tenants. The building has an outdoor atrium and a shared deck.
The building was restored with help from the city. As it does have historical value, the developers had to follow certain codes.
“If you look at how we restored it we were extremely careful,” said Swiezy.
The units are being priced between $1400 and $2500 per month. They went on the market last week and three have already been leased.
