Infilling: Canisius Area Projects – Buffalo Rising 4/17/19, 9(16 AM

More infill is coming to an area south of Canisius College. Architect Seth Amman of Arch&Type is
moving forward with a four-unit apartment building at the southwest corner of Northland and Waverly
while Severyn Development is proposing two multi-family properties for vacant lots on nearby Lafayette
Avenue.

Amman’s project includes four apartments including an ADA-accessible unit and work/live unit at the
front of the building. The project will include geothermal heating and cooling and large windows for
natural light. According to Amman’s application to the Zoning Board, the front peak of the roof will
feature arts panels to “contribute to the urban fabric while creating a dynamic sense of place in the Cold
Springs neighborhood.”

Amman needs a variance to construct a multi-family property on the lot. He is also proposing a single-
family residence next door to the building. That project does not need a variance.

1017 and 1021 Lafayette floorplans.

To the west, Severyn Development is proposing two, four-unit residential structures on two side-by-side
vacant lots. The structures are planned for 1017 and 1021 Lafayette Avenue and include two, front and
back, two-story units with two bedrooms each and two one-bedroom apartments garden level apartments.

1016 Lafayette, left. 1017 and 1021 Lafayette, right.

The design of the buildings is similar to a project Severyn is now constructing across the street at 1016
Lafayette. That project includes a two-family main building and rear carriage house.

Linking the two development nodes is the former Record Theater complex that a group led by Jason Yots
is proposing to renovate for a mix of uses.

Seth Amman's design looks like a cabin at a summer camp lol.
Severyn's design looks very nice. Cutting edge, and in line with what we see in other
progressive cities like Denver
