Stones from the third story windows are now nearly stacked in the doorway of
"Regency Tower," also known as the F&M Buildng
Large stones adorning third-story windows on the F&M Building at Locust and Main streets fell onto the sidewalk late last night, closing the building and street until further notice.

According to LPD, the incident occurred around 11:45 p.m. when multiple pieces of concrete fell from one of the windows, hitting the canopy for 21st Amendment and falling to the ground.

No one was injured in the incident, but the building and street have been closed until Lockport's Building Inspection office can be assured it's safe to re-open.

Building Inspector Jason Dool said this morning that he hasn't had a chance to inspect the scene yet, but Building Inspector Clayton Dimmick had been on scene shortly following the accident.

"I believe at this point, is that they were going to need to get an architect or an engineer to look at it," Dool said by phone. "We'll probably end up taking another look at it later today."

Kelly Alaimo of Granchelli EA Real Estate Development, which owns the building, said "We're going to have an engineer look at it this morning. It doesn't look to be anything structural. Hopefully if we get the engineer in today, we'll get it back up (open) tonight," she said.

The building's only tenant currently is 21st Amendment.
