M&T ranks 3rd in nation, Paladino revives Court St. project and more

From Business Today:


M&T Bank is America's third best small business lender according to J. D. Power & Associates. The national study found small businesses were even happier with M&T as their lender than last year.

M&T got a 764 rating on a 1,000 point scale. J.D. Power's highest ranking went to M&I Bank, a subsidiary of Milwaukee-based Marshall & Ilsley Corp., with a score of 768. Columbus, Ohio-based Huntington National Bank, part of Huntington Bancshares, came in second, scoring 767. M&T tied for third with Branch Banking & Trust, the primary subsidiary of BB&T Corp. of Winston-Salem, N.C.


Carl Paladino's Ellicott Development Co. is moving forward with plans to build an eight story office building on Court Street where a parking lot now sits. Paladino said he has received inquiries from tenants and will go ahead with a project downsized from earlier incarnations and possibly including a hotel.

The developer also announced it will build a six-story boutique hotel on Main Street in Amherst, on the current site of Stereo Advantage. That project will include 40 apartments.
