Development Watch: Parkview Apartments

The former School 59 building, located at the corner of Best and Fillmore, is now fully underway towards redevelopment. Once complete, the Parkview Apartments will feature 26 units, many of which will overlook Martin Luther King Park.

This four-storey beauty is a significant boost for the neighborhood and is already triggering smaller nearby developments around the park.


Information on these affordable living units can be found here.


Parkview Apartments is located at 769 Best Street, close to the entranceway of Route 33. The building is also close to the Buffalo Museum of Science and tons of park amenities, including tennis and basketball courts, and the Parade Splash Pad/Skating Rink. 


The project is being funded by the City of Buffalo with financing through the Buffalo Urban Renewal Agency, and the US Department of Housing and Urban Development Home Investment Partnership Acts Program.

The development project is being handled by SA+A Development out of Miami, Silvestri is the architect, and Preservation Studios is handling all of the tax credit applications.

Sometimes the authors at Buffalo Rising work on collaborative efforts in order to cover various events and stories. These posts can not be attributed to one single author, as it is a combined effort. Often times a formation of a post gets started by one writer and passed along to one or more writers before completion. At times there are author attributions at the end of one of these posts. Other times, “Buffalo Rising” is simply offered up as the creator of the article. In either case, the writing is original to Buffalo Rising.
