Plans to convert the former Loew’s Theatre Company warehouse at 510 Washington Street into 13 apartments and first floor commercial space received a $50,000 funding boost through the New York Main Street Program grant administered by Buffalo Place. It was the largest grant awarded earlier this month that targeted properties in the 400 and 500 blocks of Main Street.
Amy and Mark Judd are planning the $3.9 million conversion project. The seven-story building was constructed in 1920 and designed by notable architect Thomas Lamb. It was built for Loew’s Theater Company to house theater props, stage components and theatrical equipment.
Floors two through seven in The Alexandre will each contain a one-bedroom, one and half bath unit and a two-bedroom, two bath unit. West facing one-bedroom units on the fourth through seventh floors will have covered balconies. One-bedroom residences will have 877 sq.ft. of living space and two-bedroom units are approximately 1,100 sq.ft.
Units will feature 12’ ceilings, in-unit laundries, and exposed beams, columns and brick work. Amenities include basement storage and a rooftop terrace.
Occupancy is expected in spring 2017.
