Uniland Envisions Region’s First Flexible Workspace
for Businesses in Downtown Buffalo

Uniland Development Company today announced its plans to transform a long-vacant warehouse at 505 Ellicott Street in Buffalo, New York, into HANSA shared workspace, the region’s first innovative business center.  It will be providing a range of furnished, equipped and flexible office space solutions from coworking, shared offices, private offices and suites for companies and entrepreneurs.


As the local leader in providing Class A office space for rent, Uniland understands when companies need to add employees but have no space for them in the current location, or when entrepreneurs desire a more professional work environment to take their business to the next level. When that happens, business owners need immediate access to turnkey office space for leaase; this void currently exists in the Buffalo market.

The warehouse at 505 Ellicott Street would receive a major makeover inside and out, including the addition of a second floor, skylights and a new front façade with brick, abundant glass for natural light and an outdoor patio.

“We’ve been studying this innovative office space concept through our industry affiliations and site visits around the country in large and comparable-sized markets and feel that now is the right time to introduce it to the Buffalo region,” said Carl J. Montante, Jr., Uniland Vice President. “Once businesses understand the value proposition, especially the flexibility it offers, it becomes a no-brainer.”

Professionals can utilize the business center through memberships with a time length of their choosing. Many pricing options will be available. The HANSA workspace center will provide coworking and shared office space with reserved and unreserved spaces, as well as private offices and team suites that will accommodate 1-20 individuals. Numerous amenities will also be offered such as lounge areas, a kitchen, and different sized meeting rooms that can be rented by anyone in the community regardless of membership status. In addition to high speed broadband, the center will also offer printing and copying, business phones, teleconference technology, bicycle storage, health and wellness options, business community programming, and catering from local restaurants. On-site staff will manage the center. Uniland plans to open the center in the summer of 2020. Click here for more information on the project.
