LUSJ and the Buffalo News are reporting that Lockport Main St. has secured office space of its own in the Old Post Office at East Ave. and Elm St.
From the LUSJ:
“We feel that the Historic Post Office is the perfect place for our organization,” said Heather Peck, Main Street Inc. program manager. “The Historic Post Office is a prime example of what this organization is all about — giving new life to old structures. Our mission is to grow the city by bringing in new business, while preserving the historic integrity and the buildings of our downtown. The Historic Post Office is a beautifully renovated building, with unlimited potential for growth. We feel very fortunate to be able to occupy such a beautiful space.”

From the Buffalo News:

Chairwoman Charlene Seekins- Smith said Thursday that the lease can be renewed. The city is committed to funding the Main Street program for at least three years.

Program manager Heather Peck said of Talarico, “He’s given us a very generous lease. He is basically donating part of the rent he normally would be able to charge and the utilities as a donation to our organization.”

Peck said the utility savings will be about $150 a month.

It will be nice to see additional activity in the Old Post Office. It is a beautiful structure inside and out with a wonderful presence on Main St./East Ave and set up nicely for office use. The ground floor windows are above eye-level for someone on the side walk which is notoptimum for retail use. It is too bad that the old loading docks are not on the Elm St side of the building as they would make a wonderful street side patio for a restaurant/cafe. (And how about we line Elm St with Elms? ;)

There will be a ribbon cutting next Thursday at 11:30am. Heather has mentioned that there will be some type of open house for those with possible interest in volunteering. It will occur sometime after the set-up of the permanent office space.

The Old Post office was purchased by Talarico along with the House of God Church on Market Street in the summer of 2006 as mentioned in the older LUSJ article here.
