Construction Wrap Up: 1225 Niagara Street

Bill Breeser’s renovation of 1225 Niagara Street at Breckenridge Street is complete. The three-story building contains 1,500 sq.ft of commercial space on the ground floor, two one-bedroom apartments on the second floor, and a two-bedroom apartment on the third floor. It’s a small building but a big save for the reviving upper Niagara Street corridor.

The project was awarded $282,500 in 2015 under the Buffalo Main Street Initiative that focuses on revitalization of neighborhood commercial districts. Funding is through the New York State Division of Housing and Community Renewal and administered by the Old First Ward Community Association. Redevelopment plans were prepared by Carmina Wood Morris.

The Italianate commercial building was constructed in 1877 and functioned as a grocery and meat market with boarding rooms above.

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.
