Investing in the Future

McGuire Development partnered with Ellicott Development in the purchase and subsequent leasing of the former Holy Angels Academy in North Buffalo. Knowing the historical significance of the Academy’s 150 years of academic excellence, McGuire Development pledged to find another educational institution to lease the property.

McGuire Development introduced the Charter School for Applied Technology (CSAT) to the property after learning of the school’s space constraints at its original campus in Tonawanda. By moving CSAT’s middle school to a new facility, the school had the opportunity to expand its elementary and high school programs. CSAT successfully applied for a charter expansion from the State University of New York Board of Regents to provide relief to its more than 1,000 student waiting list, in connection with this project.

Work to upgrade the former 200+ student all-female school into a state-of-the-art middle school facility for more than 500 students began in May 2014. Following an aggressive construction schedule, the McGuire Development team completed the project in just three months, in time for students to take their seats on August 25, 2014. McGuire Development provided CSAT with a streamlined and open-book process that resulted in the project being completed on time, on budget and met CSAT’s vision for student success.
