BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — One of western New York’s biggest developers claims it was blindsided.
Executives with Ciminelli Real Estate say they realized they lost the contract for the soon to be vacant Women & Children’s Hospital campus when they read it in a newspaper.
Thursday, Kaleida Health announced it will start working with rival developers Sinatra and Company, and Ellicott Development.
Kaleida said it could not come to terms with Ciminelli’s development team.
A spokesperson from Ciminelli told us they learned of the decision in The Buffalo News.
They said they were working with Kaleida in good faith to work out a contract, and are surprised and disappointed by the decision.
