If You Can’t Get Enough Trico…

Filed under: Preservation

…then you’ll be interested in reading the contract between Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus and the Buffalo Brownfield Restoration Corporation, spelling out the terms under which BBRC—a subsidiary of Buffalo Urban Development Corporation, a city agency—took ownership of the Trico building and BNMC became designated developer.

You’ll note that BBRC is obligated under the contract to repair the building’s parapet and to maintain the building in its current condition, less normal wear and tear. The deal was signed in 2007; the parapet is still crumbling and, because the hole in the roof was never repaired, the building is in worse condition now than it was five years ago.

Later, we’ll post some surveys by engineering firms.
