Imagine the activity in the former First Quarter in the early 1900s. You can see remnants of it in the industrial buildings that have survived, even when they are underused and often neglected. One of these structures housed Barcalo’s manufacturing plant. It is made up of nine buildings filling a city block where they used to make items including tools, mattresses and the famous BarcaLounger chair.

Respecting its history and a vision of its future, architect Karl Frizlen and general contractor Mike Masters are developing the Barcalo complex. When the two-year construction project is completed in 2023, there will be 116 apartments and around ten businesses in the Barcalo Living and Commerce building (read more).

During the height of Barcalo’s manufacturing days, the facility had waterfront access in the form of a hand-dug basin off the Buffalo River where barges could load and unload products. Later, when trucks replaced ships to transport goods, the Ohio basin was filled in and is now called Father Conway Park.

The area was attractive for business not only because of the access to water, but also the many residences where workers lived in the neighborhood. It was populated mainly by Irish immigrants relegated to the water’s edge. Back then, living by the water was not considered the prime real estate it is today.

In addition to the BarcaLounger, a symbol of relaxation, the company has become known for its coffee break policy. In 1902, the Barcalo Manufacturing Company made history by officially incorporating a coffee break into the benefits enjoyed by employees. The company also had a cafeteria where employees could take their lunch breaks, a novelty at the time.

The initial building was designed by the architectural firm of Green and Wicks in 1899 and the last building was completed in 1919 to accommodate the growing business. The complex’s buildings were separated by an exterior walkway that Frizlen and Masters are currently transforming into an art gallery and museum.

They interview art professionals to organize exhibitions in turn. The “Art Alley” is nearly two football fields long, ideal for large exhibits and art displays, including a permanent historical display of pictures and artifacts from the building and Buffalo’s past.

German-born architect Karl Frizlen tells the story of his engineer father showing him an adjustable wrench in the 1950s. Frizlen remembers the excitement of the design and utility of one of tools manufactured by Barcalo. While clearing the building before construction, Frizlen discovered patents for adjustable wrenches which he plans to exhibit.

Soon, when residents look out of the large apartment windows to the north and east, they will see homes, schools and churches. To the south and west, the view spans the Buffalo River, grain elevators and rail yards. Father Conway Park is directly across Louisiana Street, west of the building. Side by side, there is evidence of the industrial past and a framework for the future.

No longer a center of manufacturing, the Old First Ward is now attractive as a dining, leisure and residential area. There are parks, kayak launches, restaurants, and piers for strolling and fishing. When the Barcalo is completed, there will be a fitness centre, brasserie, restaurant, café, launderette and offices in the commercial space on the ground floor. Parking will be inside the building and in the parking lots to the south and north of the building. Tenant amenities will be lounges throughout the building, a dog wash and storage facilities.

In Barcalo’s story, the past meets the future in an updated historic hull with state-of-the-art modern interior finishes, technology and comfort. When the restoration of Barcalo Living and Commerce is complete next summer, 116 apartments and ten commercial spaces will breathe new life into an underutilized building, located in a decent and highly deserving neighborhood.

MP for Kettering raises concerns over accommodation of asylum seekers at the Royal Hotel to Immigration Minister https://guideglobal.com/mp-for-kettering-raises-concerns-over-accommodation-of-asylum-seekers-at-the-royal-hotel-to-immigration-minister/ Sat, 19 Nov 2022 07:16:14 +0000 https://guideglobal.com/mp-for-kettering-raises-concerns-over-accommodation-of-asylum-seekers-at-the-royal-hotel-to-immigration-minister/ Concerns over a proposal to house up to 150 asylum seekers at Kettering’s Royal Hotel have been raised with the UK Immigration Secretary.

Concerns over a proposal to house up to 150 asylum seekers at Kettering’s Royal Hotel have been raised with the UK Immigration Secretary.

Kettering MP Philip Hollobone (Con) spoke in the House of Commons on Wednesday November 16 and called the Home Office’s plan ‘shameful’.

He called for an urgent meeting with Minister Robert Jenrick (Con) and told him he couldn’t think of a worse place than the historic Market Place hotel, which once hosted Queen Victoria.

Philip Hollobone raised the proposal in Parliament.

Mr Hollobone told the House how the National Crime Agency had confirmed that Albanian organized crime gangs were transporting young men to the UK to run cannabis farms, and then being transported to communities to ‘infiltrate the local crime scene ” after applying for asylum.

He said: “One such community is Kettering, where there is a shameful proposal to house potentially up to 150 single Albanian men in a 50-room hotel with no kitchen, right in the city centre.

“It’s the biggest night-time economy in North Northamptonshire, and it’s close to a family park. These young lads will be walking around in all sorts of trouble.

“I can’t think of a worse location for an asylum hostel. Will the Minister meet with me urgently so that I can explain to him why the proposal should not go ahead?

“From where I sit, at present Her Majesty’s Government are not protecting our coasts or my local community from an increase in imported crime.”

Mr Jenrick replied: “My hon. A friend raised some serious concerns and I would be more than happy to meet with him. He and I have already spoken, but a formal meeting would be an obvious next step.

A few days later, their request was rejected by the High Court, but because NNC also issued a temporary stop notice – alleging a breach of planning control – the asylum seekers cannot be transferred there without that the hotel does not risk a possible lawsuit.

It is not yet clear what will happen when the temporary shutdown notice expires in early December.

NNC leader Cllr Jason Smithers (Con) previously said: ‘North Northamptonshire Council takes its responsibility to asylum seekers very seriously. The council have already offered to have discussions with the Home Office to help identify suitable hotels in the area and we welcome any information they can provide that will enable us to locate suitable alternative accommodation.

“We do not believe that the Royal Hotel in Kettering is the appropriate place to accommodate asylum seekers for a number of reasons. We do not believe that the proposals have been properly considered to ensure the best possible welfare of the asylum seekers. asylum seekers and the local communities in which they are housed.

This month hundreds of refugees had to be moved from an immigration center in Manston, Kent, after fears it had become dangerously overcrowded.

Refugee on 12th day of hunger strike to protest conditions at Serco Home Office housing https://guideglobal.com/refugee-on-12th-day-of-hunger-strike-to-protest-conditions-at-serco-home-office-housing/ Mon, 14 Nov 2022 18:15:11 +0000 https://guideglobal.com/refugee-on-12th-day-of-hunger-strike-to-protest-conditions-at-serco-home-office-housing/ A REFUGEE has been on hunger strike for 12 days in protest at conditions at a Stockport hotel run for the Home Office by disgraced contracting firm Serco.

A REFUGEE has been on hunger strike for 12 days in protest at conditions at a Stockport hotel run for the Home Office by disgraced contracting firm Serco.

Manchester-based refugee support group Rapar (participatory action research for refugees and asylum seekers) said it had investigated the hotel and found shocking conditions, including inedible food, skin diseases, abuse by staff and garbage piled up on landings.

Serco and the Home Office denied such conditions existed, but Stockport Council said it shared Rapar’s concerns about the hotel.

Council leader Mark Hunter said: “Asylum seekers and residents of Stockport are hurting.

“Asylum seekers have been locked up in a hotel for months and this inhumane treatment acts as a Petri dish for mental health issues in an already vulnerable cohort.”

Rapar founder Dr Rhetta Moran said a refugee staying at the hotel with her family had gone on a hunger strike, not eating since November 2.

The refugee was taken to hospital two days later after collapsing, according to Rapar.

He was told he would be taken back to the hotel, but he and his wife are afraid to return because of abuse they say they have suffered in the past, according to the group, which said the man had asked Stockport council and local MPs to help him find safe accommodation elsewhere.

Serco and the Home Office have been asked to comment.

As demand for social housing far exceeds supply, the private rental sector (PRS) must be seen as part of the solution to the housing crisis and an immediate end to anti-landlord rhetoric.

The Senedd Local Government and Housing Committee consultation on homelessness following an unprecedented demand for temporary accommodation supply by local authorities specifically wanted to explore the supply of temporary accommodation, the impact of living in temporary housing on individuals and their families and ways in which the supply of temporary affordable housing could be increased.

Propertymark stressed that the Welsh Government must increase the supply of private and social housing.

Increase supply in the private rental sector

We insisted that temporary accommodation should be just that – temporary. To meet the needs of vulnerable people, they need durable housing that they can call home. When families live in temporary accommodation, they have reduced medical, educational and employment opportunities. With the right supports in place, more families can access PRS.

We took the opportunity to issue a further warning about proposals to increase notice periods to six months that may have on offer in the PRS. This could be further impacted by rent freezes that could be considered in early 2023.

Local housing allowance

Propertymark also stressed that the Welsh Government must continue to ask the UK Government to increase Local Housing Allowance (LHA) rates to keep in line with market rents, scrap shared accommodation rates and review large areas of the rental market that do not reflect the fair LHA. rates.

Local authorities also have a role to play in ensuring that vulnerable tenants have adequate access to discretionary housing payments to help them with rent arrears or other housing-related financial problems.

Gemma Campbell, 38, and Audra Ames, 51, were left at Porlock House in Jarrow, which is home to the elderly, by an occupant, but once inside they broke into a pensioner’s room died and took their curtains.

Newcastle Crown Court heard one of the women tell a guest they had bothered during the September 2020 raid: ‘I bet you’ve never had two beauties like us in the property’.

The court heard how the duo also tried the doorknobs of occupied apartments, at a time when visitors were banned from the complex, which has an intercom entry system, due to Covid restrictions.

They described themselves as “two beauties”.

Prosecutor Elizabeth Muir told the court the women entered common areas and stole pictures from the walls, cleaning supplies and a mirror.

A judge said they took ‘everything that wasn’t nailed down’.

Miss Muir said two male residents realized items were missing inside the building and cupboards in the communal cupboards had been ‘trashed’, then saw the thieves stacking items outside .

Miss Muir told the court locals confronted the woman and added: ‘The men said they weren’t going anywhere until the police arrived.’

Gemma Campbell.

The court heard another resident came downstairs during the confrontation and was ‘shaking in fear’.

One of the occupants said in a statement: “A lot has changed with covid but we all take care of each other.

“Testing your doorknob is annoying.

“They shouldn’t have been in the building. They shouldn’t have taken our stuff away.”

Audra Ames.

Another said: “There are elderly residents living here who are vulnerable.”

Another occupant added: “I am extremely annoyed that these women are in our safe house.

“I think someone let them think they were friends of his daughter or something. They clearly took advantage of her old age and vulnerability.”

Campbell, of Downham Court, South Shields, South Tyneside and Ames, of Stoddart Street, South Shields, both admitted the burglary and theft. The court heard that both women had troubled pasts and had criminal records.

Grant Hunter

David Callan, defender, said Campbell was “clean” after being detained and took advantage of opportunities to change.

Mr Callan said the raid was ‘not very professional’.

Jennifer Coxon, defending, said Ames’ son was killed and three people stood trial for his murder, but one was convicted of manslaughter.

Miss Coxon said: “It had a significant impact on her emotional well-being.”

The court heard Ames had a criminal record but had been issue-free for more than a decade before the raid.

Campbell had also admitted to stealing meat and handling stolen goods after she and Grant Hunter drove to Aldi in South Shields in a stolen vehicle.

Campbell was sentenced to two years in prison, suspended for 18 months, with drug rehabilitation requirements.

Hunter, 45, of Beach Road, South Shields, admitted to stealing meat, handling stolen goods and driving while disqualified.

The court heard the couple were spotted stealing meat from the store and police were alerted by staff.

Hunter, who took the opportunity to get help for his problems while on remand, was jailed for two years.

Ames was sentenced to 16 months in prison, suspended for 18 months, with rehabilitation terms and 100 hours of unpaid work.

Judge Robert Adams said the women had each tried “different door handles” and, while in the common areas of the sheltered accommodation, they “effectively removed everything that was not nailed down”.

Asylum seekers in migrant hotels sue Interior Ministry for ‘unfit accommodation’ | United Kingdom | New https://guideglobal.com/asylum-seekers-in-migrant-hotels-sue-interior-ministry-for-unfit-accommodation-united-kingdom-new/ Sat, 05 Nov 2022 22:01:00 +0000 https://guideglobal.com/asylum-seekers-in-migrant-hotels-sue-interior-ministry-for-unfit-accommodation-united-kingdom-new/ Lawyers for migrants awaiting asylum decisions have filed applications with the High Court insisting that the government provide permanent self-catering accommodation.

Lawyers for migrants awaiting asylum decisions have filed applications with the High Court insisting that the government provide permanent self-catering accommodation. Among the requests are a father of eight who wanted to live closer to his children’s various schools and another refugee who asked for a four-bed detached house.

With the arrival of unprecedented numbers of asylum seekers, many via small boats across the English Channel, the Home Office has in some cases booked entire hotels to house people for extended periods over applications are considered.

It costs nearly £7million a day, or the equivalent of £2.5billion a year.

It emerged last week that there was severe overcrowding at the Manston migrant processing center in Kent, which had 4,000 people, more than double the number expected.

Today the Sunday Express can reveal that at least 15 families, none of whom can be identified for legal reasons, have lodged claims with the High Court over an allegedly unsuitable hotel or other accommodation.

Although many have fled war-torn countries or oppressive regimes, lawyers have filed a number of claims alleging that housing has had a negative impact on clients’ lives.

Last month, the court heard a complaint from a Syrian family in a west London hotel, claiming that two parents and two children were in a room with not enough space.

He added: “The family does not have access to a washing machine and the laundry service is not frequent enough, which results in the children being bullied at school for wearing dirty clothes. There are no self-catering facilities and the food provided is insufficient.

Judge Sir Ross Cranston refused leave, saying: “I see no legal basis for the challenge.”

A claim in September from an Iraqi Kurdish couple with four children, including a UK-born one, moved to the next stage after Mrs Justice Hill heard that a child was severely disabled and that they were being accommodated in two rooms at separate ends of a hallway.

They also argued that “there is no self-contained kitchen and the food in the hotel is not suitable for children, while the rooms are small and poorly ventilated”.

The Interior Ministry promised to move them, but in August that was not the case. Some demands were very specific.

A claim filed in July asked for a four-bedroom detached house “which is stepless, self-contained, self-contained, which contains an orthopedic bed and suitable handrails and shower seat”.

In another complaint, a father of eight wanted a house in a better location in relation to the various schools he used.

Two other complaints complained of “overcrowded” accommodation and delays in moving to longer-term accommodation. The cases were adjourned.

Alp Mehmet, chairman of campaign group MigrationWatch UK, asked how civil action was funded. He said: “It smacks of legal expediency…legal aid would underpin such action.”

The Home Office declined to disclose the total number of similar claims, but confirmed it had lost some cases. He added: “We are ensuring that safe accommodation is provided to asylum seekers who would otherwise be destitute.”

But Tim Naor Hilton, of Refugee Action, said: “The challenges will continue until the government abandons hostility and places people in suitable and appropriate homes.

The Taoiseach has defended the Irish government’s response to the housing shortage for Ukrainian refugees, describing it as “remarkably swift”.

Micheal Martin admitted it was “unsatisfactory” that more than 30 Ukrainian refugees were left homeless on Friday.

But he rejected the suggestion that the increase in the number of refugees arriving in the country had been predicted months ago.

It emerged that more than 30 Ukrainian refugees were left homeless on Friday.

It comes after the government admitted on Thursday that it cannot rule out Ukrainian refugees ending up on the streets due to a lack of housing.

Speaking before the Cairde Fail dinner in Dublin on Saturday, Mr Martin said it was not a ‘fair’ argument to suggest the government should have foreseen the need for accommodation.

“The numbers shouldn’t have been higher,” he said.

“Certainly not before the summer, we didn’t expect them to reach higher levels than what we have now.

“And the state has not been slow. The state was remarkably quick, I would say, in terms of responding to a war situation, the worst humanitarian crisis in Europe since World War II.

“We have witnessed the displacement of over six million people and Ireland, in terms of percentage per capita, has responded in my view, in an extraordinary way, in an unprecedented way, in terms of the numbers that we have already welcomed.”

He added: “Just because someone said there could be 200,000 doesn’t mean you have magic up to 200,000 overnight.”

Up to 55,000 Ukrainians have arrived in the country since the outbreak of war in February.

Mr Martin said the government was “urgently” looking for further accommodation, admitting it was “under pressure”.

Asked if he knew the exact number of refugees who had been told there was no accommodation, Mr Martin replied: “Thirty-three is the number I have now and I think some have gone back to the airport”.

The Fianna Fail leader added that the government will do everything in its power to “speed things up” to accommodate the growing number of refugees.

“Some countries have had people in tents for quite a long time due to the large number of people fleeing war,” the Taoiseach said.

“So I think it’s not just an Irish phenomenon. It’s a Europe-wide phenomenon, unfortunately.

“We will definitely do everything we can to speed things up and put more hosting in play.”

Earlier Deputy Minister Martin Heyden said it was “disappointing” that the refugees had no accommodation, adding that it was not the space the government wanted to be in.

The Ministry for Children, Equality, Disability, Integration and Youth confirmed to the PA news agency on Saturday that 33 refugees, all single men, were told on Friday that they were not there was no accommodation available for them.

A spokesperson said: ‘Thirty-three people, all single men, were notified yesterday that no accommodation was available and have been asked to provide their details when available.

The Citywest transit center, which processes new arrivals, has reached capacity. It is understood that some slept at Dublin Airport overnight.

Mr Heyden told RTE with Katie Hannon on Saturday that from Monday an overnight facility will be in place at Dublin Airport to accommodate refugees arriving on late flights, before being processed at the hub from Citywest the next day.

He said an increase in the number of people coming from Ukraine has put “stress and pressure” on the system.

He added: “We cannot guarantee everyone who comes here a bed now because of the situation we find ourselves in. We need to be honest and upfront about this as we redouble our efforts, work through the government, through state agencies to develop these medium-term solutions.

The Department for Children, Equality, Disability, Integration and Youth said on Thursday evening that the Citywest transit center had reached capacity amid a severe constraint on suitable accommodation.

A group representing NGOs said pregnant women and elderly people were sleeping on chairs and on the floor at the overcrowded Citywest facility.
