Construction Watch: Shoreline Apartments

Norstar Development is redeveloping the north end of the Shoreline Apartment complex with eight new buildings containing 48 units. The Buffalo Planning Board approved the project in late 2013 and a New York State Low-Income Housing Tax Credit award of $1.056 million helped fund the project.

The Shoreline complex at 270 Niagara Street sits in the shadow of City Hall. It contained 472 units on 9.5 acres and was designed by modernist architect Paul Rudolph and completed in 1972. Demolition work on the north end of the complex was completed last year.


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



A 20-unit, three-story brick building with fiber cement siding accents containing 10 one-bedroom and 10 two-bedroom apartments will anchor the new development at the Carolina/Niagara Street corner (above). A building with two to three level townhouses will also be constructed along Niagara Street (below).



Stieglitz Snyder Architecture designed the project.
