Diocese of Buffalo to Sell Headquarters after Bankruptcy

The diocese of Buffalo, New York has announced that it will sell its headquarters building, the Catholic Center, for $9.8 million, several years after announcing the diocese’s Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing.

The diocese announced on March 11 that the Catholic Center is for sale, and highlighted information about the buildings’ history, architecture, and renovations.

The diocese first purchased the buildings in 1985, which was previously used as a printing-press location for the now-closed Courier-Express. The buildings were renovated shortly after its purchase in 1985.

Located on 795 Main St., the building is approximately 95,000 square feet. The sale also includes a “two-block collection of properties,” according to the press release, including “an additional two-story building at 801 Main Street, and an adjacent garage structure on Main and Burton Streets. Three adjoining parking lots on both the east and west side of Main Street also are included in the listing.”
