BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — The new year is off to a sweet start in Buffalo's Larkinville.
General contractor TAYLOR says construction is nearing completion on a pair of two-story mixed-use building at 864 AND 872 Seneca Street that will be anchored by the fourth location of Paula's Donuts in Western New York.
Paula's is expected to open this spring, about the same time mixed rate apartments above will welcome their first tenants.
After departing Buffalo for its new Sheridan Drive location in the Town of Tonawanda several years ago, it will mark a return to the city for Paula's. The local chain also has locations in Clarence and West Seneca.
The building facades are designed to tie into the historical nature of the district.
Construction is also moving forward on a five-story mixed-use building, Millrace Commons, at 799 Seneca Street. The 85,000 square foot building will feature retail on the ground floor and 70 studio, one and two bedroom apartments on floors two through five.
