From Business Today:
Two buildings in Orchard Park have sold. One was bought by a local dentist looking to expand, the other was bought by two parties with the intention of being divided among them. Pediatric dentist Michael Foley bought 3364 Southwestern Boulevard for $465,000 to be used as a second branch of his dental practice. The former Bally's Matrix health club at 55 Weiss Avenue sold in three transactions to neighboring property owners who plan to knock it down and split a three-acre parcel of land.
Two local companies went above and beyond the state's energy conservation requirements in multifamily buildings and are being recognized for it. C.J. Brown Energy PC and Buffalo Energy received multiple awards from the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority.
An Amherst restaurant has sold its building to a car dealership, but will reopen in a larger space. Falafel Bar's owner and chef Oded Rauvenpoor sold the building at 3689 Sheridan Drive to Northtown Automotive Group for $248,000. The dealership will knock down the building to build a second entrance for its nearby Hyundai-Subaru dealership. Falafel Bar will move into the recently closed HucklebucketsFamily Grill & Sports Bar in the Northtown Plaza.
