University at Buffalo S. Campus Student Housing

Construction of student oriented housing located near the Main/LaSalle Transit Station in Buffalo, New York.  Project is currently in the final stages of municipal approvals. Legacy was awarded Designated Developer Status by the City of Buffalo for the City's property located off Cordova Avenue.  The addition of this parcel to properties we currently own allowed us to proceed a site plan that will total 339 multifamily units in a community that utilizes the urban block concept.

Our site consists of a portion of the former Buffalo Crushed Stone Company stone quarry that was in use until about 1950.  The quarry was later filled in with a mixture of excavated stone from the construction of Route 33 in Buffalo as well as municipal waste and some incinerator ash.  This fill material contains elevaterd levels of certain contaminantes that will be cleaned up via participation in the New York State Brownfield Cleanup Program.  Here is the approximate location of the site relative to the quarry as it existed in 1927:
