BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — The ribbon cutting for the Siano Building on Buffalo’s west side took place on Monday.
The $2.3 million Better Buffalo Fund (BBF) project on Grant St. replaced a vacant lot, turning it into a 12,600 square foot building available for retail space and 11 apartments.
“The Better Buffalo Fund of the Buffalo Billion focuses on neighborhood revitalization as a key element of the city’s economic and civic renaissance,” Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul said, who attended today’s ribbon cutting. “With a $440,000 grant, we have leveraged a $2.3 million investment that fills a vacant lot, adds to the vibrancy of the Grant Street corridor and confirms Governor Cuomo’s economic strategy for Western New York. I thank and congratulate developers Matthew and Chris Siano for their vision and commitment to our city.”
