The Pierce-Arrow Administration Building in North Buffalo, N.Y., will be converted to 107 new apartments according to a Sept. 27 story by The Buffalo News. The project, to be undertaken by the Read Property Group of Brooklyn and former owner Joseph Hecht, is expected to cost $30 million.

Located at 1695 Elmwood Avenue, the former Pierce-Arrow Administration Building has long been neglected. Buffalo's city Planning Board conditionally approved the project that will re-purpose the 123,099-sq.-ft., three-story administration building and give it new life as homes.

Pierce-Arrow manufactured only high-quality automobiles in Buffalo until 1938, when the company assets were sold at auction. In 1937, the final model year of Pierce-Arrow production, only 167 cars were built.
