Change is coming to the Shoreline Apartments. The Buffalo Planning Board will be reviewing plans to construct 48 apartments in eight new buildings next week. The complex at 270 Niagara Street sits in the shadow of City Hall. It currently contains 472 units on 9.5 acres and was completed in 1972.
BuffaloItalianGuy has some details (from this post):
Any more information about the Norstar Development plan to tear down 5 of the Shoreline Apartments buildings on Niagara St at Carolina St? They are supposed to be replacing them with 48 new affordable townhouse units.
Phase 1 will tear down the group of 5 buildings that are vacant/mostly vacant at the corner of Niagara St at Carolina St (250/260/270 Niagara St and 145/165 Seventh St). They will be replaced with 48 townhouse units.
The Planning Board meets on Wednesday, November 6 at 8:15 AM in Room 901, City Hall. Other interesting projects on the agenda include:
- Renovation of a former Arby’s at 537 Delaware Avenue to house a Tim Horton’s and Coldstone Creamery
- Plans for a new two-story, two-family dwelling at 536 W. Ferry
- A new Dunn Tire facility at 2300 Delaware Avenue
- Regan Development’s plans for the Architectural Circus building at 885 Niagara Street
- A ‘commercial facility’ at 359 Ganson Street
