Designing a Mixed-use “Mobility Hub” in Downtown Buffalo
201 Ellicott is a mixed-use affordable housing and fresh food market project currently being planned for downtown Buffalo. We were part of a previous design for this site in late 2015/early 2016 that envisioned a mixture of higher-end luxury apartments, underground and above-ground parking, office space, and a grocery market. After the project was placed on hold and further studies were conducted gathering community input, the program was redeveloped into something much more appropriate for the area and city.
This site will be one of the first “mobility hubs” for downtown Buffalo, providing residents and the community with a place of alternative transportation opportunities, supporting the idea of vibrant, livable and walkable communities. The project is currently being reviewed by the zoning and planning board, and is moving forward with great anticipation and excitement. Some renderings of the project thus far:
