201 Ellicott Street. Buffalo, NY

The 201 Ellicott Project is a transformational development in downtown Buffalo, NY, bringing highest and best use to a remediated site with 201 affordable housing units, a fresh food market—Braymiller Market—and expanded mobility options to a previously under-resourced community.  The residential component reaches a height of 5 stories along Ellicott Street and 7 stories along Oak Street and includes 131 one-bedroom units and 70 two-bedroom units.  The market totals approximately 20,000 square feet and is a mix of 7,000 square feet of retail space and 13,000 square feet of wholesale space.  Stakeholders with a vested interest in the community surrounding 201 Ellicott informed and enhanced the project, defining its guiding concepts: AFFORDABILITY, MOBILITY, HEALTH & WELLNESS, and VIBRANCY.
