Niagara Street Falling: Shoreline Apartments Coming Down

The wreckers are doing their thing to the northern portions of the Shoreline Apartments on Niagara Street.   Norstar Development USA is replacing five buildings with eight new buildings containing 48 apartments. The Buffalo Planning Board approved the project in late 2013.  A New York State Low-Income Housing Tax Credit award of $1.056 million helped push the project forward.shoreline1

The Shoreline complex at 270 Niagara Street sits in the shadow of City Hall. It currently contains 472 units on 9.5 acres and was designed by modernist architect Paul Rudolph and completed in 1972.

Norstar acquired the Shoreline Apartments in 2005.

Unlike the current complex, the new buildings along Niagara, Carolina and Seventh streets will be built close to the street. Parking will be internal to the complex with entrances on Carolina and Niagara streets.

The remaining six fiber cement sided buildings proposed for the site contain units with one or two levels. Several of the units will contain third floor loft areas. Stieglitz Snyder Architecture designed the project.
