Anthony LoRusso has modified his plans for an apartment building he is seeking to construct on a vacant 1.7-acre site at 127 Clayton Street in North Buffalo. The height, size and layout of the project has been revised based on neighborhood concerns. LoRusso first proposed the project last May.
From the project application:
The initial development design proposed a 66-unit 3-story multi-family building with 67 parking spaces on the Property and a rezoning of the Property from D-IL and N-4-30 to D-R. Since initial submission, Applicant received a unanimous recommendation from the Planning Board regarding the zoning map amendment.·
In response to several comments from neighbors regarding density, height, and traffic, Applicants have now thoroughly revised its development. The development has been reduced from to a 48-unit 2-story building with 50 parking spaces. The parking lot access point has also changed to the southern end of the Property to address public comments. The building is angled to avoid an overly obtrusive street-front presence. The design revisions have also eliminated the need for any area variances.
LoRusso recently completed two apartment buildings on West Street with a total of 106 apartments. Stieglitz Snyder Architecture is designing the Clayton Street project.
