Niagara Street LLC – an investment group including Hogan, Kulpa, and Kevin Kirby from Avant Realty LLC — bought three properties at 1932 Niagara St., 1940 Niagara St., and a vacant lot at 1962 Niagara St. from Charles Leone Jr.’s Endless Enterprises LLC for $1 million, according to a Sept. 7 filing in the Erie County Clerk’s office.
The project would be anchored by an art studio and athletic center and would also include up to 24 apartments.
“What we are planning is consistent with what’s going on downtown, but we want to do this in the Black Rock neighborhood,” said Hogan, founder, and partner in the Amherst-based Tiveron Law law firm.
While Hogan has some residential investment properties in Buffalo, this would be his first commercial venture.
“We view it as an opportunity to add and infuse some life and vitality into that part of Niagara Street,” Kulpa said.
