Inducement Resolution

Project Details

The project entails the adaptive re-use of the former Ken-Ton Fabricators building on Main Street in in the City of Buffalo.  The facility is 26,000 sq. ft., over 100 years old and has been vacant for approximately 8 years. 


Mean Guppy will relocate its offices currently leased from 43 North on Ellicott Street and Washington Street.  Five non-revenue producing apartments will be used by engineers coming from outside the area.  In addition, a café/dining area is planned.  The apartments will alleviate the company having to house people in other apartment buildings throughout the City.  The project will retain the 34 existing jobs.  No new jobs are being proposed and layoffs due to pandemic are not anticipated.  However, the company is optimistic that there will be job creation in the future.
