Last Phase of Homes at Sycamore Village is Underway

Burke Homes has begun marketing ten remaining home sites in the Sycamore Village subdivision located at the corner of Sycamore Street and Jefferson Avenue.  The market rate homes are priced from $238,900 and one of the new residences has sold and is now under construction.


sycamore1The Buffalo Urban Renewal Agency selected Burke to build-out the Sycamore Village subdivision last fall.  Six of the homes will be built on Matthews Street, one on Jefferson, one on Sydni Alley, and two on Sycamore Street.

Burke plans new houses that have exteriors consistent with the existing homes in Sycamore Village.  Two-story plans with three bedrooms and 1 ½ baths start at $238,900.  Three bedroom ranch designs start at $250,900.

“There are a number of plans a buyer could choose from including the home designs built in earlier phases,” says Kevin Cullen of RealtyUSA, marketing the homes for Burke.  “We also have four-bedroom plans available.”

Buyers will be able to customize floor plans and finishes.

“When someone is interesting in building, they can sit down with the builder and me to design their new home,” says Cullen.

Homes will be built as they are sold.  Cullen says the location will be attractive for people working downtown, the Medical Campus, or Larkin District.  The nearby Kensington Expressway offers easy reverse commuting as well.  The single-level and low-maintenance homes are expected to be ideal for buyers looking to downsize while being close to city amenities.


Fifteen new homes were constructed in Sycamore Village in 2008 consisting of eleven market rate and four subsidized homes.  Market-rate homes were priced from $185,000 to $220,000 while the four subsidized homes were priced in the $150,000 to $165,000 range.  Most residences have rear-loading garages, many accessed from Sydni Alley, a new alleyway constructed through the 3.86 acre site.  There is a landscaped common area located between Sydni Alley and Matthews Street.

Hundreds of new homes, nearly all of them subsidized, have been built in the near east side neighborhood since the early 1980′s.

Burke has had success with single-family home construction in the city.  Colvin Estates in North Buffalo sold its first phase of 24 lots in less than two years.  Residences generally sold in the mid- to high-$200s.  A second phase of what is expected to be 34 additional lots is planned.  Colvin Estates will contain 127 lots at full build-out.
