|Info||More often than not, Carl Paladino comes across as a guy who has a gripe about plenty of things in Buffalo—its politicians, its development projects and even the way its schools are run. And, more often than not, he makes a fair argument. Still, no one can deny that he is a full-time Buffalo Booster, with a particular passion and unconditional love for this city. It’s obvious in his dedication to doing business here. |
As CEO of Ellicott Development Company, a real estate development and property management firm which he founded in 1973, he manages 2.8 million square feet of office and residential property, making him Buffalo’s most invested landlord.
Among the properties of which he is most proud, Paladino is particularly pleased with his acquisition of the Ellicott Square Building and its role as a viable entity downtown. He also takes pride in his impressive conversion of the Berger Building from retail to residential property. And, of course, there his new beauty, the Pasquale at Waterfront Place—condominiums for sale, directly on the water.
Growing up on Schiller Street in East Lovejoy, Paladino attended Buffalo Public School #43 and later Bishop Timon High School. He then went south on Route 16 to St. Bonaventure University, during its most famed decade—the glory days of its men’s basketball team, the Little 3 rivalry and the lead up to their appearance in the NCAA Final Four tournament. “Besides our academic lives, it was all about the basketball team,” he said.
Paladino stayed involved with the university, generously donating money, and once serving as a trustee and chairman of the Buildings and Grounds Committee there. When asked about his commission to have a wooden “Carvings for a Cause” statue of Bob Lanier erected outside of the Reilly Center in 2007, Paladino said simply, “My friends and I did that for him. Bob has come out for the school and has shown leadership there. We were happy to do it.”
After St. Bonaventure, Paladino attended Syracuse University, where he earned a law degree in 1971. He went to Fort Bliss, Texas, where he served in the US Army, retiring in 1981 as a captain.
Paladino returned to Buffalo the year after he went to Texas, started his own law firm, and managed the Ellicott Square Building before establishing his development company.
As his Ellicott Development biography states, Paladino is frequently asked for his input and expertise. He is a Director of Buffalo Place, Inc., a Trustee at Bishop Timon-St. Jude High School, a Director of Buffalo Civic Auto Ramps, a member of the Executive Board of the Niagara Frontier Council of the Boy Scouts of America, a former member of the Advisory Boards of Erie Community College and D’Youville College, and former director of the Horizons Waterfront Commission.
