Lawmakers Want to Save ADM Grain Elevator in Buffalo, NY

New York State Senator Sean Ryan and Assemblymember Jon Rivera say city should rescind demolition permit and allow independent assessment

On Sunday, New York State Senator Sean Ryan and Assemblymember Jon Rivera joined representatives from Preservation Buffalo Niagara to call on the City of Buffalo to take action to prevent the demolition of ADM's Great Northern grain elevator, reports WKBW.

Windstorms damaged the Great Northern’s outer brick wall last month, leaving a hole in the side of the building.

Building owner ADM applied for an emergency demolition permit citing safety concerns, which was later granted by the City of Buffalo.

Senator Ryan and Assemblymember Rivera say the city should rescind the demolition permit and allow an independent assessment of the grain elevator to be conducted immediately.

Once an independent assessment is conducted, ADM could be ordered to make repairs to the building through the city’s new receivership program. If ADM will not make repairs, then the building would go to a receiver, who would then make the necessary repairs, stabilize the building, and find an interested buyer.
