Create a new affordable home for the arts in a long-vacant automobile factory in the economically depressed, racially divided Midtown Neighborhood
- Jumpstart economic revitalization
- Help bridge a historic racial divide
Scope of Work:
In partnership with the Belmont Shelter Corporation, we developed the Buffalo Artspace Lofts, a 60-unit mixed-use project. Thirty-six units are in the historic factory; the remaining 24 units are in six new fourplexes built on vacant land behind the factory. The $16.9 million project also includes a two-level community gallery that is managed by the project’s resident artists and 9,000 square feet of commercial space on the main floor of the factory building.
