ENB - Region 9 Notices

Negative Declaration

Erie County - The City of Buffalo Planning Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Allentown Lofts will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the rehabilitation of the former Buffalo Casket Building. The renovation to the existing building will include ten (10) live - work apartments that will allow for larger living space for home related job or hobby activities. The Buffalo Preservation Board has reviewed this proposed project and their suggestions have been incorporated into the site plan and building elevations. They will include the construction of a new steel and glass entryway on the east elevation, remove existing wood window and replace with wood windows to match the original in design and configuration, create new and larger window opening in the basement and install wood windows, installation of window in original garage door opening on west elevation, install window in original front door opening on south elevation that will replicate the appearance of a door and the relocation of the garage and man door openings to the east on the garage addition (south elevation). The project is located at 430 Virginia Street in the City of Buffalo, New York.
