This residential complex is a historic rehabilitation and reuse of a shuttered 33,000 SF North Buffalo machine tool shop. As part of this project, the building – which dates back to the early 1920s served as a manufacturing plant for local and national businesses including Pierce Arrow. It was listed on the State and National Historic Registers and was eligible for SHPO [State Historic Preservation Office] tax credits. Care was taken in the design process and construction to maintain the original look and character of the building. Many industrial details from the building’s past use – including cranes, line shafts, and fire doors, were preserved and reincorporated into the building as design features. Project benefited from state Brownfield tax credits for remediation of contaminants related to the building’s prior industrial use. This project is also part of the Erie County Industrial Agency’s (ECIDA) PILOT [Payment In Lieu Of Taxes] program.
