One of the most wonderful things about living and working in Buffalo today is the juxtaposition of our city’s storied history and the development of new and modern spaces.
That’s why we love the new commercial space available at 1091 Main Street. The building comprises a new and modern 6-story structure alongside the redeveloped former Our Lady of Lourdes Church. It perfectly unites a historical and modern aesthetic and allows the businesses working there to enjoy both beautiful architecture and conveniently designed spaces.
We’ve put together a few reasons we love 1091 Main Street as an ideal option for businesses seeking commercial space for a new or existing venture.
Plenty of Space Means Opportunities to Connect with Like-Minded Businesses.
The new portion of the 1091 Main Street building will provide more than 167,000 square feet of commercial, retail and office space. The existing Our Lady of Lourdes Church will also be developed for commercial, retail, restaurant, and residential options.
With such a large amount of space and square footage available, there will be plenty of options for businesses to sync up and connect with others in their field or in complementary fields.
As an example, marketing companies may benefit from officing near other marketers, or near graphic designers, photographers or web developers. Doctors can benefit from being near pharmacies, imaging clinics, or physical therapy offices.
In each of these situations, the proximity of offices can make it easier for customers/clients too, which can encourage their retention and loyalty. And, sharing a similar space means more opportunities for referrals and for walk-by traffic from businesses that have similar customer spaces.
Collaboration between Buffalo businesses is always a great thing, and it’s exciting to see 1091 Main Street fostering more of it.
A Winter Garden Provides a Space for Recharging and Relaxation.
The connection between the newly built space at 1091 Main Street and the existing church will be more than just a plain hall or walkway. The spaces will transition beautifully via a two-story winter garden.
This space will offer a convenient option to step away from your office or business and recharge/refresh. 1091 Main Street is taking a leaf (no pun intended) from Amazon’s book in creating this restful space; Amazon’s The Spheres provides a similar curated indoor plant space designed to boost innovation and creativity among its team members.
Build a Life Based on Convenient Access.
Being mindful about the way you spend your time is critical to building a life you love and one that’s designed to maximize both productivity and enjoyment. Live-work-play spaces like 1091 Main Street factor greatly into this type of lifestyle, because they’re so convenient.
The third-place theory of sociology says that people need three types of spaces in their lives to be socially fulfilled – places where they can be productive (work), places where they can feel safe and secure (home) and places where they can connect with like-minded people in a community (third places).
Developments like 1091 Main Street are tapping into those needs for their communities, providing a network of options that don’t require transportation or depend on the weather/climate for accessibility. With a development like 1091 Main Street, residents can live on-site, office or work in one of the many business locations, then find a restaurant or garden space on-premise to give them a third space option that feels comfortable and provides connection and interaction with others.
Connect to All of Buffalo from a Central Location
While we envision 1091 Main Street becoming a community hub and gathering place, it’s also extremely centrally located and has easy access to other areas of Buffalo that we love.
For example, it’s no secret that Elmwood Village offers a full slate of enjoyable activities – from people watching to restaurants, breweries, farmer’s markets, and festivals. 1091 Main Street is only a little over a mile from this trendy and fun area. Other conveniently accessed areas include downtown Buffalo, Allentown, and the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus.
Play an Active Role in Buffalo’s Ongoing Growth.
Buffalo continues to experience a renaissance in the form of new development, new business opportunities, and new growth. Media outlets around the United States recognize that Buffalo is a fantastic place to build a life because it combines a relatively low cost of living with the benefits of a large, active, conveniently located city.
When you choose to build or grow your business in 1091 Main Street, you’re becoming part of something bigger than yourself. You’re increasing the vibrancy and sustainability of Buffalo’s economy, and you’re benefiting from others in the 1091 Main Street community that share your love of and commitment to our city.
If you’re looking for a place to settle, you don’t have to settle– Be part of a new development and community that’s innovative, thoughtful, and committed to growth. 1091 Main Street is now leasing and offering options for business people who are ready to be part of a community, and who want all the advantages of this new development.
