The Mentholatum is a prime example of a residential mixed-use building that is among several projects serving as the cornerstones of Niagara Street’s redevelopment. Tenants will appreciate the conveniences of modern amenities with glimpses of the building’s past through exposed brick, original columns and, in some areas, original finishes. An excellent choice of lofts to rent in the Buffalo area with a short drive to downtown and many other popular spots nearby.
Designed by architect George Townsend and constructed in 1919, the building is an excellent example of a turn-of-the-century daylight factory. The 80,000 square foot factory was the Buffalo,NY base of operations for the Mentholatum Company until 1989. In 1997 the building was sold to the Garrett Leather Corporation which occupied it until Ciminelli’s purchase was completed in 2016.
Post renovation, The Mentholatum is a prime example of a residential mixed-use project that is among several projects serving as the cornerstones of Niagara Street’s redevelopment. The Mentholatum boasts 49 market rate apartments, outdoor patios and community space, and picturesque views of the Upper Niagara River, City of Buffalo and Peace Bridge. The project also provides parking spaces on the lower-level, as well as substantial surface parking.
The commercial neighborhood immediately adjacent to The Mentholatum is flanked mostly by mainstay local and regional companies like Rich Products, as well as a variety of new additions including Twin Petrels Seltzer Co., Daddy’s Plants, and a number of other eateries and conveniences.
The City of Buffalo has spearheaded an initiative to improve the 4.5 mile Niagara Street Corridor, including the section of Niagara Street outside the front door of The Mentholatum. The redevelopment project’s goal has successfully improved traffic flows and patterns in a manner more consistent with the evolving nature of the neighborhood, to encourage bicycle and pedestrian use, and to promote economic development. Niagara Street is a main north/south artery for vehicles, cyclists, and pedestrians traveling to and from the Central Business District of Buffalo.
