Ellicott Development is planning additional projects at the north end of the Medical Campus. The company is currently repurposing the former Our Lady of Lourdes Church into a mix of uses and constructing an office building to the south of it. The Buffalo News reports that Ellicott is also planning a hotel and parking ramp on the St. Paul Mall property east of the church and a future office building south of it.
A four-story parking ramp is proposed behind the former church with a four-story, 107-room hotel on top of it. Work could start next spring pending City approvals. Long-term, Ellicott has plans for a second office building. It would be seven or eight stories on a rectangular-shaped parcel that sits behind a Wendy’s restaurant. Plans for that building will be tenant-driven.
Work continues on the former church. Two additional floors are being constructed within the open cathedral nave creating approximately 14,000 sq.ft. of space over three floors. Three market-rate apartments will be on the third floor and roughly 5,700 sq.ft. of commercial office space will be available on the second floor.
The 167,000 sq.ft., six-story building at 1091 Main will contain a variety of retail and office space along with one level of underground parking for 50 vehicles. Designed by Smith + Associates Architects, General Physicians and a dental practice affiliated with the University at Buffalo have signed leases for space in the building. Concept Construction Corp. is overseeing the construction.
