Uniland Development Co. offers a specific building in the former Bethlehem Stud area. The company has a purchase agreement with Buffalo and the Erie County Industrial Lands Corporation for up to 10.27 acres of land at the corner of Hamburg Circle and the length of Dona Street for the project. The light production / storage facility is at least 120,000 square meters. Uniland has agreed to pay $ 25,000 per hectare for a property.
In February last year, ILDC issued a request for the construction of a specific building here.
“This is a new step in our vision for land reclamation, which was once the driving force of our community’s economy,” said Erie County Executive Mark C. Polonkars, who serves as ILDC chairman.
Uniland was the only applicant, including a commitment to build a facility without a tenant to help meet the demand for production space and warehousing in the region. According to the agreement, construction should begin within a year of property purchase. If Uniland does not start work, the ILDC may return the property for 85 per cent of the purchase price or the start date of construction may be extended at an additional charge.
Several infrastructure improvements on 150 hectares belonging to ILDC have been completed, including the extension of Dona Street to the property, the relocation of the railway, the construction of a bike path on Route 5, and the completion of the Infrastructure Master Plan for the future production park.
