spotlighting a rental today that may be against the dictum of “cool,”
but I’m doing it anyway. To compound the already dubious choice of
“cool,” I am jumping on a recent neighborhood bandwagon: the 700
block of Main Street between Goodell Street and West Tupper, specifically The Sidway Apartments and Lofts at 775 Main Street.
I decided to
stroll over and give it a look, given all of the recent press the block has
received since opening up for two-way traffic again. The whole block smelled
like a room after a fresh coat of paint. It is clean and crisp with jet-black
asphalt and bright-white road lines. The office and business fronts toward
West Tupper are all sleek and professional looking. It is a very nice newly refurbished block and it
has seemingly ample room to grow.
Apartments look like a great way to introduce people to what should be the
model for an ideal downtown renaissance. The apartments are bright, spacious
and modern, but not that weird dystopian-sterile I’ve seen in some modern
apartments. It is a short walk to a number of cool places such as; City Wine Merchant, Squeaky
Wheel, Chow Chocolat, Market Arcade Film and Arts Center, CEPA, Irish Classical Theatre, Town
Ballroom, The Tralf Music Hall, and that list could go on for a
while, depending on how far you wanted to walk, or take the free train…
If you happen
to be in the area, take a brief detour and check out what could be (hopefully)
the future of downtown Buffalo, and if you are so inclined, move in and help
expedite the process.
