PUSH Redesigns West Delavan/Congress Plans

PUSH Buffalo has made changes to plans for a couple of buildings/properties at the corner for W. Delevan Avenue and Congress Street.  The affordable apartment buildings have been delayed over neighborhood concerns with parking and traffic issues.  Stieglitz Snyder Architecture and eco_logic Studio teamed up on the plans that will be reviewed by the Planning Board on Monday.

First, PUSH is no longer building at 160 Congress Street, as was originally intended. The decision was made to find a “great/better” use for the property, after conducting many meetings, and having numerous conversations with neighbors around the site.

Additionally, the 225 W. Delavan building has shrunk by one floor and two apartments.  Plans now call for two floors and four three-bedroom apartments.  PUSH has also added three new parking spaces on the site and is dedicating additional parking at the Grant Street Neighborhood Center for tenants.


The W. Delevan/Congress buildings are part of PUSH’s West Side Homes Project that aims to construct 49 apartments (down from 53) on vacant sites.  Additional buildings are proposed for West Avenue, Rhode Island Street, and Parkdale Avenue.
