Buffalo, NY Uniland Development Company has started construction and is taking deposits on 12 upscale residences in one of the city’s most in-demand neighborhoods, the intersection of Delaware District and Elmwood Village near the historic Gates Circle at Delaware Ave. The project should take about 12 months to complete.
The firm’s latest residential development offers two home styles, both with modern floor plans and interior design, close to some of the city’s greatest architectural, cultural and natural treasures.
“There is a great desire for city living and many people seek more than apartment-style or loft living which is what is predominantly being built,” said Uniland CEO Michael Montante. “There are a few other townhome projects in the city but none in this unique and highly desirable location, and none with this level of finish. It really is pinnacle living in a pivotal location.”
The project includes seven modern French Eclectic townhomes at the corner of Delaware Ave. and Lafayette. They face Gates Circle, a Frederick Law Olmsted-designed radial parkway, and its historic fountain. In addition to the landscaping of the Gates Circle townhomes, the residences border a pocket park maintained by the Olmsted Parks Conservancy. The Gates Circle townhomes range from 3,700 to 3,900 s/f with three and four bedroom configurations and three stories of living space. An elevator comes standard and the roof can provide an optional terrace for additional outdoor space.
One block south on Lancaster Ave., Uniland will build five Queen Anne-style homes with shingles, lap siding and stone accent. The Lancaster townhomes will total 2,500 s/f of living space, and two stories. An elevator shaft is standard should the owners choose to purchase and install a lift.
All homes include a private entrance, foyer, a gated personal walkway to a secondary entrance, a two-car garage with a direct entrance into the home, and a dedicated storage area. Comforts of home such as a gas fireplace, coffered ceilings, baseboards, crown molding, large windows, recessed lights, hardwood floors, carpeting, and high-end appliances and finishes come standard. As a bonus to your living space, enjoy outdoor entertaining in the adjoining private courtyard equipped with a built-in gas grill and base cabinets.
A Homeowner’s Association will manage the outdoor areas that are owned in common.
Gates Circle was named to the National Register of Historic Places in 1982 due to its designers Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux. Its elaborate fountain serves as one of the focal points of the Olmsted Parkway System at Delaware Avenue and Chapin Parkway. The location provides opportunities for residents to walk and bike to nearby amenities and attractions, such as Delaware Park, Forest Lawn, Albright-Knox, Burchfield Penney and several unique stores and restaurants.
