US (NY): Zephyr plans cannabis job-training operation

As Zephyr Partners begins the first phase of construction on its new cannabis campus in South Buffalo, the California firm is seeking to set up a career-training program at the Northland Corridor building occupied by the Albright-Knox Art Gallery.

California-based Zephyr – owned by Brad Termini, son of Buffalo developer Rocco Termini – is proposing to use the 16,000-square-foot building at 612 Northland Ave. for its job-skills programs that would teach potential hires how to work in the legalized cannabis industry.

The proposed programs would be run in conjunction with the adjacent Northland Workforce Training Center and would complement the expansive new $300 million cannabis cultivation and production facility that Zephyr is building at the Buffalo Lakeside Commerce Park. Zephyr, through its nonprofit foundation, is negotiating a memorandum of understanding with the workforce center to partner on the education efforts.

Both the Northland campus and the South Buffalo business park off Fuhrmann Boulevard and Tifft Street are owned by the Buffalo Urban Development Corp., with whom Zephyr is negotiating a lease for the Northland building.
