At this moment, Schneider Development is unveiling its $11.4 million Niagara Street development, Turner Brothers Lofts. This sensational project is a real eye-catcher on Niagara Street – a corridor that is finally getting the attention that it deserves. The adaptive reuse of four historic buildings at 295 Niagara Street, creates 55,000 sq.ft. of livable, workable space. At this point, there are only three units left, out of the 40 units that were built. This shows a steady sign that loft and flat living in the city is hotter than ever.
Ru’s Pierogi will be the feature commercial tenant in the building. According to Schneider Development, Ru’s will have a full-scale FDA-approved kitchen that will allow the company to produce and distribute. There will also be an adjoining restaurant and bar, as well as accommodations for a Ru’s food truck.
Other amenities include a fitness gym, a pet wash station, bicycle storage, and a roof deck.
4+ interconnected structures comprise the whole of the Turner Brothers Lofts. The oldest structure among them is circa 1853. The building was used for production and distribution of syrup, cordials, bitters, etc.
These buildings sat forlorn for a dog’s age. This renovation project will help to breathe new life into Niagara Street, and the West Side as a whole. There’s still a ton of work do be done on the street, but this will hopefully help to speed up the process, by signaling to other building owners that the time has come to invest in the stretch between Niagara Square and the intersection at Busti Avenue.
