Iskalo Development continues to liven up Buffalo’s Electric District with the purchase of the former Old Editions Book Shop building on East Huron Street. This purchase was made official in late 2019!

A Multifunctional Space in the Making

With Old Editions Book Shop now relocated to North Tonawanda, Iskalo Development is seeking tenants and businesses for the four-story, multi-use building. With the first two floors available for retail and commercial businesses, the upper two floors of the red-bricked building are reserved for residential tenants.

The first and second floors available at 68 East Huron Street have substantial windows and great curb appeal, making it a smart business choice for most retailers. Built in 1898, the former Old Editions Book Shop building has a historic, classic charm to it that savvy business owners could easily work with when building their brand. By incorporating top floor residences into the building, as well as being next door to another mixed-use space, Iskalo Development is creating a hybrid hub in the heart of downtown Buffalo.

Iskalo’s Electric District

The Buffalo real estate developers are no stranger to the downtown Electric District. On top of their more recent purchase on East Huron, Iskalo Development properties include the Electric Tower, Big Ditch Brewing, a nearby parking lot and ramp, as well as spaces on Oak Street. With unique buildings within walking distance to one another in one of Buffalo’s trendier locations, the Electric District is a place for new businesses to seek out properties and working professionals to call home.

Iskalo Development’s Electric Tower is at the heart of the Electric District. The iconic Buffalo structure was built to highlight the use of electricity for all the city to see and first did this in 1912. Along with the Electric Tower, many of the buildings purchased by Iskalo Development in this neighborhood have rich histories dating back to the 19th century. The former Old Editions Book Shop also has unique architectural elements connecting the building to its historic past. Any tenant or business joining this building will also find a sense of community within the Electric District that Iskalo continues to add to.
