|Ciminelli Real Estate Corporation
is pleased to introduce The Sinclair,
our most recent residential, mixed-use development project. The
Sinclair is a significant icon representing the commerce at the turn of
the Century; it was home to the Sinclair Rooney & Co., a wholesale
milliner, and Remington-Rand Corporation, a typewriter manufacturer.
Constructed in 1909, it was one of several buildings designed for light-industrial work in this part of downtown Buffalo, including other wholesale milliners (hat manufacturers) located nearby. Sinclair Rooney located its offices, showroom, and workspace in the building as they led the wholesale millinery industry in Buffalo, and was one of several wholesale milliners to locate on Washington Street during a period in which this area of downtown Buffalo transitioned to commercial and light industrial uses.
