Transit Road’s Forestview in Depew Going to Officially Close
Wow, look what Forestview is going to turn into!
First Louie's, now Forestview.
UPDATE: I think it is important to note that this is not happening for a while, so go in and support still while you can!
Two of our favorite spots to go for late-night food after a fun night out are going to be a thing of the past. Well, Louie's Texas Hots already closed its doors earlier this year and now, Forestview is getting ready to close as well.
4781 Transit Rd, Depew, NY
A couple of employees acknowledged the close but did not have a specific time frame as to when things would actually be shut down. Why is Forestview closing and what is going into Forestview? Part of the new plan will be to make it some living spaces and some office space. Here is what Forestview is going to turn into according to a listing at Pyramid Brokerage:
Retail/office space available in brand new mixed-use building now available for lease. 27,000sf 3-story building with 14 apartments and 8,200sf of first floor commercial space. Prime location offering high visibility on the Transit-Losson Retail Corridor. Good demographics and traffic counts. Situated in the path of progress on centrally located Transit Road (Rt. 78) in one of the fastest growing areas of Western New York. Ideal for pediatrician, primary care medical office.
In fact, Transit Road in Depew has quite the new look lately. Just in that area alone two massive apartment buildings are going up--one right across the street next to Dave's Christmas Wonderland, and another apartment complex down the street closer to Elaine's Flower Shoppe by Como Park Boulevard.
There are some parts of Transit Road over there, that really could use some serious help. The closer you get to Broadway and Transit, you see many buildings that could use some....maybe a little bit of help. The old Hidden Shamrock and Razzberries, directly across the street are two buildings that are quite the eyesores. The Hidden Sham, located at 5521 Transit Road in Depew, recently went up for sale. The price for the building, which includes the old bar and a couple of apartments, hit the market starting at $180,000.
