Downtown Buffalo has seen an exciting revitalization, spurred in part by projects such as The Warehouse Lofts.

Resetarits Construction partnered with Schneider Design for this high end conversion of the former Seneca Paper building into residential loft apartments.  The historic building was constructed in 1913, and is one of the first concrete frame warehouses built in the United States.

Designated a historic structure, this project converted the building into 30 upscale loft apartments and 8,000sf of office space.  Utilizing historic tax credits, the project provides tenants with a range of modern amenities, including first floor parking.

Resetarits Construction’s challenges on this project were numerous.  Working with the State Office of Historic Preservation (SHPO), Resetarits was required to strictly adhere to the historic preservation guidelines of the tax credit program.  Innovative solutions were required to achieve a functioning project within budget.  One such solution was the raising of floors in each apartment to avoid altering the size of the windows.  The windows of the former industrial building were too high to be enjoyed by residential occupants, and historic guidelines prevented the altering of the window openings.  Each floor was raised so that the occupants can enjoy the fantastic views provided out of each of the building’s seven floors.

As with many historic renovation projects, unforeseen conditions arose throughout the course of construction.  Resetarits Construction worked closely with Schneider Design and SHPO to overcome these obstacles, resulting in the timely completion of the project and a strict adherence to the budget.

Today, The Warehouse Lofts are enjoyed by a diverse group of tenants who appreciate the fine details of this high quality historic renovation project.
