First Look: 465 Washington

Ciminelli released a rendering for their plan to convert the old EOC (Educational Opportunity Center) Building at 465 Washington to multi-use. The developer confirmed their intention to convert the first floor for retail and office use, while using the floors above for 45 apartments. The apartments themselves will encompass a variety of floorplans, including 1-bedroom, 2-bedroom and studios.  The Buffalo Planning Board signed-off on the project yesterday morning.


The 86,254 sq.ft. redevelopment is scheduled to be completed in the spring of 2016 at a cost of approximately $10 million. Ciminelli purchased the building in December 2014 for $2.3 million from an affiliate of the University at Buffalo Foundation.

Chaintreuil | Jensen | Stark Architects (CJS) designed the project.  Preservation Studios is working on obtaining historic preservation tax credits.
