Deconstruction Watch: Queen City Landing

The former Freezer Queen warehouse is in the process of being dismantled. Although there was a fight underway by activists to preserve the Outer Harbor building, Developer Gerry Buchheit is now scrapping the hulking structure. Buchheit’s original plan was to incorporate the Freezer Queen building into the development plans. Later, that decision became too costly, and the plan was restructured. The latest plan sees a new 23-story, primarily residential, building erected.


The complex is said to feature upwards of 120 apartments, two restaurants, a nightclub, boat slips, retail, and fitness facilities, with on-site parking for 600 cars.

Trautman Associates is designing the complex.

The new development is expected to have a $60 million price tag, and could open as early as 2017.

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.
