Somewhat lost in the news of a building collapse and subsequent demolition on Ellicott Street this week is what has happened to the bakery business inside.  Business First reporting that Two Wheels Bakery & Cafe is reopening Monday at 1006 Grant Street. Owner Susan Adamucci noted that much of her equipment was lost when the building was demolished.  It was scheduled to be removed this weekend.  Two Wheels is also planning to add a cafe near Plymouth Avenue and Pennsylvania Street.

Investor group Monroe Building LLC has formally purchased the Record Theatre complex on Main Street for a reported $375,000.  According to Business First, the group still needs to secure construction financing.  Once that is accomplished, work could start early next year and take about a year to complete.  GoBike Buffalo, Reddy BikeShare, Gutter Pop Comics and Fry Baby Donut Co. have already signed up as tenants, with some apartments also in the mix.

WNY Medical Management has opened its new Surgery Center.  The facility is at 3112 Sheridan Drive in Amherst.

Erie County Medical Center Corporation has received a $1 million grant from Independent Health for the hospital’s future Trauma and Emergency Department.  To date, total private donations to the future facility have reached $14.7 million.
