Buffalo’s tallest building, Seneca One Tower, is in the early stages of a $100 million multi-faceted redevelopment that will create a mix of office, residential and retail space at the site.
Having received the necessary approvals from the Buffalo Planning Board, Douglas Development Corporation, a Washington DC-based firm headed by renowned real estate developer Dougals Jemal, is underway with phase one of the project, which will convert approximately 193,000 SF in the annex buildings to the west and south of the main tower. The western annex will contain 183 apartment units and the southern annex will house retail and restaurant space. Additional retail space will be created in the main tower’s third floor as well as a new building slated for construction on the site’s northeast corner.
Streetscape improvements are also planned, including a new driveway corridor on the north side of the property for streamlined drop-off/pick-up services for residents and commercial users, landscaping improvements, pedestrian walkways, and perhaps most important, the installation of wind screens to limit the “wind tunnel effect” a long-time challenge for increasing foot traffic at the site.
Perhaps most notably to Invest Buffalo Niagara is the availability of 600,000 SF of Class A office space in the main tower. With 22,000 SF floor plates, Seneca One Tower is ideal for office users who seek a downtown location with plentiful amenities including covered parking in a connected ramp. The building also provides for easy access to public transportation, regional and interstate highways, and an international border crossing at the Peace Bridge.
Located at the southern end of Buffalo’s Central Business District, Seneca One Tower provides stunning views of downtown and the lakefront, as well as direct access to Canalside, Coca-Cola Field, KeyBank Center and HARBORCENTER.
