Ecology & Environment – an environmental consulting, testing and engineering firm that used to be publicly traded and was acquired in late 2019 by Montreal-based WSP Global – has sold its bucolic Lancaster headquarters and consolidated its operations in downtown Buffalo.
Last week, Upstate Niagara – through UNC Real Estate IV LLC – bought the 119acre property at 368 Pleasant View Drive and along Eighth, Ninth and Tenth streets, for $4.75 million, according to a deed filed with the Erie County Clerk’s Office. The property is assessed at $2.854 million. WSP USA, a privately owned engineering conglomerate and parent of WSP Parsons Brinckerhoff, consolidated operations to its existing offices in the Waterfront Village office complex, at 50 Lakefront Blvd., and then put E& E’s 60,000-squarefoot former headquarters up for sale a year ago, for $4.95 million. WSP is seeking a new downtown location for its 150 employees.
The private dairy food and beverage cooperative, which had been based on Anderson Road in West Seneca, has moved its headquarters to the Lancaster campus.
In Buffalo, Canisius College sold 2075 and 2079 Main St. to Kulback’s Inc. – through 2075 Main St LLC– for $2.45 million. The combined package consists of a three-building , 43-unit former student housing complex located near the intersection of Main Street and the Kensington Expressway.
The first is Griffin Hall, a 15,496- square-foot building constructed in 1949 on 0.32 acres. It includes seven one-bedroom and five two- bedroom apartments that are not air- conditioned.
The second consists of five buildings totaling 34,620 square feet, known as the Main-Humboldt Townhouses. They were constructed as student housing in 1988 and 1990 but later changed to conventional apartments. The property includes 29 two-bedroom apartments with two bathrooms, and two one-bedroom, one-bathroom units, with forced-air heating and air conditioning.
