Erie County - The City of Buffalo Planning Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Horsefeather Market and Residence will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a proposal by the Frizlen Group, Karl Frizlen Architect, for the rehabilitation of the former Horsefeather building. The project will convert a five story historic warehouse building, built in 1896, into a state of the art energy efficient green building with commercial and residential units. The building has not been used to its full potential for twenty plus years. This project will benefit the surrounding community by bringing the building use to its full potential by adding a Local Foods market including small scale retail and wholesale food preparation facilities, sixteen loft style apartments and a surface lot next to the building. It is anticipated that the first floor will include a fresh dairy bar, coffee roaster, bakery, a small deli style kitchen and a pasta manufacturing area. The basement area will also include various other food vendors. The building restoration is being reviewed and monitored by The New York State Office of Parks and Recreations (NYS OPRHP) as an interested agency as the building's owner has applied for Historic Tax Credits. The City of Buffalo Department of Public Works is also reviewing an encroachment into the right of way for a stair tower (fire escape). Office space will be added to one or two floors of the building. The neighboring property owners are in support of this project as they anticipate that this proposed project will benefit their businesses and the surrounding community. The project is located at 346 Connecticut Street in the City of Buffalo, New York.
