A 1,980 sq.ft., one-story Theater District building would grow by three floors under a proposal drawn up by eco_logicSTUDIO. M M & E Holdings LLC received Zoning Board approvals Wednesday to construct two townhouses at 431-33 Ellicott Street just north of Genesee Street. An existing storefront would be converted into a garage door for the townhouse owners and the second storefront would continue as commercial space. Leaded glass transoms would remain.The Zoning Board approved two variances needed for the garage: allowing a vehicle parking entry not permitted along a ‘pedestrian priority frontage’ and permitting a garage setback of less than 20 feet from the front façade of the structure. The garage door would lead to indoor parking for four cars. After the addition, the townhouses would be 45’ tall and include rear patios and balconies. One of the units would be occupied by the property owners, Eric and Leigh Fox.
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.
