As part of the ongoing redevelopment of the lower West Side, Don Burns of db Media Company, has created another inspirational video. This one features Schneider Development and Ru’s Pierogi at the Turner Brothers Lofts. Concerning the utilization of mixed use spaces, Don writes the following:
Located at a major gateway into downtown Buffalo along the re-emerging Niagara Street corridor, the Turner Bros. Loft sits on the edge of downtown Buffalo and the historic West Village. The project seamlessly combines and adaptively reuses 55,000 square feet of historic inventory spread across a patchwork of 5 interconnected structures.
The earliest of these structures was built in 1853 for the Turner Bros. – a producer and international distributor of syrup, cordials, bitters, and other “medicinal tonics.” The project features 40 high-end apartments, and local start-up food company Ru’s Pierogi, who has a full-scale FDA & USDA approved kitchen to support production and distribution operations, an on-site restaurant/bar, and home base for food truck operations. The project also features on-site gated parking, a fitness gym, a pet wash station, bicycle storage, and a roof deck with sweeping views of the downtown skyline and Lake Erie.
Historic architectural features, such as large timber and concrete post and beam framing, original fire doors, and brick walls and clay speed tile have been meticulously woven into the project’s finished design. Buffalonylofts.com for leasing Produced by db Media Company at dburns.co.
