A Rochester developer wants to turn an abandon building on Buffalo’s Westside into a 10-story high-end mixed-use building. 

Andrew Crossed of Park Grove Realty in Rochester owns the property at 990 Niagara Street. He said the $17 million building will have 95 upscale apartments, garage parking, retail and restaurant space.

This would be the first time in decades a developer has built a 10-story building along the Niagara River on the Westside. The building would be even taller than the Crescendo a mile down the street. 

Crossed wants to get started on the project by this fall. However, before construction can get started the developer needs approval by the City of Buffalo Zoning and Planning Boards. 

Today Buffalo’s Zoning Board of Appeals tabled its decision regarding the height variance of the proposed building. The next board meeting is on May 16th.
