Rocco Termini hopes the directors of the Erie County Industrial Development Agency like beer. A lot.
Termini is seeking help from the ECIDA to support his conversion of an old industrial building on Chandler Street into the new home of Thin Man Brewery and a business incubator.
The developer, through his Signature Development Buffalo LLC, has applied for sales and mortgage recording tax breaks for the $4.695 million project, in which he would add 10,000 square feet to the 40,000-square-foot building at 166 Chandler St.
