The Buffalo Planning Board voted unanimously to give final approval for developer Douglas Jemal’s Elmwood-Bidwell project. The approval came following meetings with neighbors to explain the project and make adjustments to address concerns. The 48-unit project will proceed once building permits are obtained.
The project is intended to transform a series of eight vacant one- and two-story structures into a single mixed-use complex that would retain the historic storefront facades and two residential houses, as well as the construction of a five-story building to unify them. Lindsey E. Haubenreich noted that Jemal made a concerted effort to meet with neighborhood residents and are committed to doing their best.
