Another informative post about Trico was found on Buffalorising this week.
This time, this article was filled with reuse ideas, utilizing an existing success story in Nebraska. The article is a little long but we encourage you to read it. In Buffalo alone, we have two examples of how old Trico buildings have been reused. Along Niagara Street, the Garrett Leather building is up and running which is an old Trico building. And TriMain, the home of Tri-Mania has evolved into a creative class building with studios for art, music and small businesses. Both are success stories and both within city limits. We continue to ask the BNMC to think outside of the box and lets find creative alternatives for Trico Plant #1.
Here is the article on the innovation campus in Nebraska.

We are glad to see that the media is still pushing the Trico issue. We know Trico can and must be saved – we just have to get the owners to own it. The good news is that as time goes on and Trico sits there vacant, more and more large scale adaptive reuse success stories continue to come online. The bad news is Trico continues to deteriorate when if put in the right hands, it would rise above and provide an innovative, creative space that Buffalo does not have. It’s also important to note that in Allentown, rents and property values are rising so quickly and there is very little availability for people to live/rent/own due to increased demand from the BNMC growth. You can only build up, not out and of course, Trico is perfect for live/work space.
