BUFFALO, N.Y. — After spending more than a decade scouting locations for a new North Buffalo/Kenmore branch, the YMCA Buffalo Niagara has found what it needs.

The YMCA has bought a seven-acre parcel at 1984 Elmwood Ave., in North Buffalo for $2.4 million, according to Nov. 23 documents filed in the Erie County Clerk’s office. The land had been owned by Uniland Development Co. and is part of a 20-acre swath of real estate Uniland has been redeveloping.

John Ehrbar, YMCA president and CEO, said the new facility will have about 60,000 square feet and will replace the current Delaware Family YMCA at 2564 Delaware Ave. and the Ken-Ton Family YMCA at 535 Belmont Ave. in the Town of Tonawanda. The Delaware YMCA was constructed in 1927 and the Ken-Ton YMCA in 1962.
