With an eye towards a future, still-to-be defined project, Sorrento Lactalis Inc. has acquired a now-closed group home that had been owned by Baker Victory Services.

The home, located 2360 South Park Ave., virtually neighbors the South Buffalo food manufacturer's plant.

Sorrento paid $72,000 for the property, according to documents filed in the Erie County Clerk's office.

Robert Planter, Sorrento manager of safety and environmental affairs, said the company has no immediate plans for the property but decided to make an offer when the group home was placed on the local real estate market.

"There are so many different options," Planter said. "I'm sure we will utilize it somewhere down the road. For now, we are just holding on to it for the future."
