Inner City Block Development

Buffalo, New York

The site is located in the City of Buffalo, occupying half a city block, bordered by one high-volume arterial and two city streets.

The site is lined with three-story brick buildings in disrepair. The proposal retains most of the existing building frontage along the sidwalk and adds new infill construction to match the scale, massing, and character of the existing buildings.

New retail and commercial uses on the ground floor are complemented with residential housing above. In the core of the block, a new medium-rise, large-footprint building rises above ground-level parking. The transparency of its facade allows the historic buildings to take center stage.
