A two-bedroom, two bath corner unit with 1,225 sq.ft. of living space was sold Friday at Historic Warehouse Lofts for $310,000. It is one of six new units Schneider has constructed on the second floor of the building. Four units remain for sale. Schneider previously converted 30 apartments on the third through seventh floors of the building into condominiums. Sales prices ranged from $215,000 to $365,000. The second floor had been occupied by Campus Labs before the firm relocated to 298 Main Street.
“Converting the second floor office space into residential units was the right move. It’s much better suited to the tenor of the building, and there is a clearly demonstrated market for this product,” said Jake Schneider, President of Schneider Development Services.
Units on the second floor are priced from $255,000 for a 1,040 sq.ft. one bedroom, one bath unit to a two bedroom, two bath unit with 1,526 of living space priced at $385,000.
“They are spacious, turn-key, brand new everything, right in the heart of Downtown Buffalo. All at a very approachable price when compared to the broader downtown condo market,” said Matt Hartrich, President of Schneider Real Estate Services. “What’s drawn people to city living is still here – shops, restaurants, entertainment destinations, proximity and access to Lake Erie. More than ever, people are going to want to take full advantage of those amenities as COVID winds down.”
The developer’s architecture company, Schneider Architectural Services P.C , worked in collaboration with interior designer Nest Interiors to achieve a clean and inviting modern aesthetic that incorporates the buildings industrial heritage and historic character. The units are appointed with white oak hardwood floors, an electric fireplace with herringbone tile surround, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, soaking tubs, walk-in closets, and in-unit laundry.
The seven-story former Seneca Paper Co. warehouse at 210 Ellicott Street, constructed in 1913, is one of the first concrete frame warehouse buildings in the United States. The building is a contributing structure in the J.N. Adams – AM&A’s Historic District and reopened for residential tenants in 2007. The building has a basement storage area and sixty parking spaces, fourteen of which are covered.
