Construction Watch: AXIS 360

A second phase of construction is underway at AXIS 360, a student housing complex off of LaSalle Avenue, a half block east of Main Street and south of the University at Buffalo South Campus.

Legacy Developments’ $40 million, six-building complex will contain about 700+ beds in apartment style suites geared towards college students upon completion.  A total of 339 units include studio to three-bedroom layouts.

According to the website of lead architect Charles Gordon, the development “emphasizes a ‘complete streets’ model highlighted by short blocks, lively glassy and friendly street corners, and a series of very small scale usable courtyards. […] Extensive surface parking requirements are hidden behind individual buildings in small pods that feel appropriate to the surrounding neighborhood scale.”

Apartments are fully furnished with in-unit laundry facilities and rent includes high-speed wireless Internet, cable, heat, water, recycling, trash, and sewer.  Shuttle service is provided for students.  Monthly rents start at $810 per student for a three-bedroom plan, two bedrooms are $830, and studios are $1000.

The pet friendly community features a clubhouse that includes a 24 hour fitness center, a pool sized hot tub, and individual study rooms.

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.
