Syracuse Architectural Digest: Muskat Live

Sunday, September 29th, 2013
Barry Muskat, developer from Buffalo

On one hand developer Barry Muskat sounds like a comedian (listen to sound clip below); on the other hand, he is definitely an optimist. His company has taken over 709 East Genesee Street, brought in United Uniform as an anchor tenant, and he’s not done yet.

The property is located across from Forman Park, between the Crowne Plaza Hotel and the Parkview Hotel.

During the press conference to announce the winners of the Connective Corridor facade grant winners (round 2), Muskat hilariously walked business owners, officials and the press through his firm’s plans.

He praised officials from the Connective Corridor and local businesses for changing what he called the “psychological infrastructure” of the neighborhood.

North Face of 709: As Muskat gave his comments at the press conference the work continued on the United Uniform commercial space, which is schedule to open on Monday.

All jokes aside, let’s hope Muskat’s enthusiasm is infectious.
New Neighbors: Muskrat met briefly with Woodbine Group Director of Sales/Hospitality Christine Tucciarone at the Parkview.
