Another North Buffalo church is going residential. Six apartments are proposed for the Plymouth United Church of Christ church at the southwest corner of Lincoln Parkway and Amherst Street. Next Wednesday, Dan Saunders will be seeking setback variances from the City Zoning Board to allow the project to proceed.
The 9,288 sq.ft. church consists of a large sanctuary, two meeting rooms, and offices. A dining hall with full kitchen and three classrooms are currently located in the basement.
Developers have converted a number of former non-Catholic churches to residential uses in the recent past including The Lofts at Warwick on Parkside Avenue, KLP Commons on Kenmore Avenue, Tacoma Lofts on Tacoma Avenue, and Ellicott Development’s 14 North Street.
The Zoning Board meets on March 20 at 2 PM, City Hall Room 901. Other items of interest include Rocco Termini’s plans to convert two former factories in North Buffalo to a mix of uses, a proposal to use the former K-mart at 998 Broadway to produce algae bi-products, and conversion of a warehouse at 277 Hickory Street to a two-family dwelling.
