Gateway-Longview has a new Buffalo home thanks to a local development project. A report in today's Business First says Gateway-Longview will move from Niagara Street to anchor Ellicott Development's restoration project at the former Grace Manor nursing home at Symphony Circle. The nursing home has been empty since 2009. Gateway-Longview is a child and family service organization, founded in 1890. The report says the move should take place by early next year. The agency's current headquarters on Niagara Street will not sit vacant. Business First says Chason Affinity Co. is buying the building and is considering re-use options.
A report in today's Business First shows how Fidelis Care weathered the storm from Hurricane Irene, thanks to its call center in Getzville. When the hurricane shut down most of New York City, where Fidelis is headquartered, it was business as usual at the brand new Getzville facility. 430 people work there and the company plans to expand and add jobs.
