Wondering what it might be like to live downtown and walk to work, theater, sports and nightlife? Looking for innovative ideas for decorating an ordinary room? On June 27, the fourth annual Downtown Housing Tour will showcase the attractive, spacious lofts, condominiums and apartments that are available in downtown Buffalo. The event, Noon until 3 pm, is free.
Downtown’s new residents want to be in the heart of the city. They want to walk to work, sporting events, theater and dining, and do not want the responsibilities of conventional home ownership. Renovations of the upper floors of commercial buildings, as well as new residential construction, translate into people occupying downtown on a 24-hour basis.
These rental or condominium properties have signed-on to be open for viewing during the tour:
- 406 Franklin Street (private residence) *
- Allentown Lofts *
- Avant (off-site) *
- The Belesario
- The Bellesara *
- Cobblestone Lofts *
- The Cooperage *
- Ellicott Commons

- The Pasquale at Waterfront Place *

* New to the tour
Registration and maps will be available the day of the tour at the Electric Tower, 535 Washington Street. The tour is self-guided allowing participants to explore the properties in the order they choose.
The Downtown Housing Tour, meant to expose participants to the changing face of downtown, is sponsored by Buffalo Place, and is a key event of Buffalo Homecoming Citybration being held June 25 – 28.
