Fresh off the purchase of three sites last week, Ellicott Development is moving forward with three reuse projects on properties it has owned a little longer. Unlike other recent conversion projects, Ellicott’s plans for 270 Michigan Avenue, 192 Seneca Street, and 1050 Niagara Street will be primarily commercial space but also include apartments. The Buffalo Planning Board will get its first look at the plans at its October 24th meeting.
At the southeast edge of downtown, Ellicott is planning three floors of office space topped by six apartments spread across three floors 270 Michigan Avenue. Ellicott Development purchased the former Buffalo Envelope complex in 2003 and converted much of the space into the regional offices for the Department of Environmental Conservation. The six-story building that is part of the complex is at the corner of Michigan and Carroll Street and is highly visible from the 190.
Kitty-corner to 270 Michigan, Ellicott is planning to renovate the Seneca Plumbing Co. building at 192 Seneca Street that it purchased in April 2011. The three-story masonry building will include two floors of commercial space and four apartments on the third floor.
As a follow-up to its new 11,000 sq.ft. mixed-use building at 1088 Niagara Street that is anchored by a Tim Hortons and three apartments, Ellicott is turning its attention to the building to its south at 1050 Niagara. The two-story, 52,000 sq.ft. building will include medical office space fronting Niagara Street and eight apartments in the rear overlooking the Black Rock Canal and Niagara River. The parking lot west of the Tim Hortons building will be expanded by 45 spaces. The project caries a $9.4 million price tag.
