As for the new plan, Violet Realty – the privately-held commercial real estate company owned by Patrick Hotung (owner of the property) – is looking to breathe life into Main Place Mall. That will entail a $75 million redevelopment at 390 Main Street.

The goal,

The three large floor plate, 280,000 square feet mall, will be transitioned into office space with retail and amenity areas, in order to attract “the next generation of talent to occupy this creative, unique offering.

Adds Hotung,

We’ve had success attracting new information and technology tenants to our other projects, specifically in San Francisco and Chicago. We’re tapping into our expertise to take the Main Place Mall, and Buffalo, and put it on the national stage.

For a peek at the proposal here are some images.
