Growth by two Seneca Street businesses has fueled the sale of another Seneca Street parcel.

McMahon LLC has acquired the former Network Piping Building at 1728 Seneca St., with plans by general contractor and woodworker David McMahon to move his company into the building. McMahon LLC paid $150,000 for the 8,000-square-foot Seneca Street building, buying it from the Finnengan Family Irrevocable Trust, according to documents filed in the Erie County Clerk's office.

McMahon had been sharing space with D&M Plywood, which is located at 340 Seneca St.

"We both needed the space," said Paul Maher, D&M Plywood president. "This worked out well for both of us."

D&M Plywood is remaining in its longtime home at 340 Seneca St., Maher said.

McMahon's company, which handles general contracting and also cabinet making, will lease the bulk of the new building, although Maher said some of the excess space may be leased out.
