Buffalo River Landing represents the next chapter of a historic site that once held the Erie Freight House, a circa 1860s warehouse from a pivotal period in Buffalo’s past. Abandoned for decades, the freight house fell into a state of disrepair that made its safe rehabilitation impossible. Buffalo River Landing kicks off a rebirth of the site that honors its historical significance. As part of the plans, the freight house’s brick foundation will remain and be visible from the water’s edge.

CJS incorporated the look of nearby industrial sites into the new design.  Two stair towers will be sheathed with polycarbonate paneling and back-lit with LED lighting.  The façade will be a steel wall panel system with aluminum clad windows.

The five-story building will feature secured ground floor parking for 67 vehicles, and 64 one-bedroom and 14 two-bedroom units on floors two through five.  A small amount of office space and a fitness center will be located on the second floor.  There will be two rooftop patios for tenants and public access along the riverfront.
