McGuire Development to Construct

Business Incubator


McGuire Development has agreed to construct a 10,000 SF multi-tenant facility on Enterprise Drive in the Lockport Industrial Park. McGuire, owners of Airport Commerce Park in Cheektowaga and several other commercial developments in the Erie-Niagara region, will purchase a 3 acre parcel on the south side of Enterprise Drive near the intersection with Crown Drive. The project is being jointly undertaken by McGuire along with R&P Oak Hill Development and Wendel Companies, and will feature flex space and multiple loading docks with overhead doors. The building is being designed to enable the developer to expand it modularly to accommodate tenant interest.
