The Rails

2929 Main St. Buffalo, NY

Located at the intersection of Main Street and Hertel Avenue, The Rails is Brownfield redevelopment that will bring 312 high-quality apartments to the heart of Buffalo’s University District. Built in partnership with Utah-based Blackfish Investments, the centerpiece of The Rails is a five-story new construction building that incorporates both wood-frame and steel-frame construction to create an attention-grabbing façade.  The adaptive reuse of a former warehouse into 28 unique apartments and the restoration of a Main Street fronting office building complete this transit-oriented development.

Available apartments will be a mix of studios, one- and two-bedrooms. Designed with a focus on quality of life, residents will have access to a fully equipped fitness center, a golf and sports simulator, secure bike storage, a pet wash and pet park, a music room, a demonstration kitchen and multiple common areas to study or gather.

The project is scheduled to be completed in Summer of 2024.  For more information about the retail and office space, please contact us at: 716.829.1900
