Developer Samuel J. Savarino and official Linda Chiarenza of West Side Neighborhood Housing Services check out the view from one of the units at White’s Livery Apartments.

The newest residential addition to Buffalo’s West Side is ready for tenants to saddle up and move in.

White’s Livery Apartments, the $3.5 million conversion of the historic former White’s Livery and Boarding Stables building’s remnants at 428 Jersey St., is now open, with 14 units in the three-story building in the city’s Cottage District.

That includes 12 one-bedroom units and a pair of two-bedroom apartments, renting for between $500 and $800 per month. First-floor parking is also included. Tenants will be chosen by lottery.

The building is owned by West Side Neighborhood Housing Services of Buffalo, and the adaptive reuse project was years in the making.

Savarino Cos. served as developer and builder, while Stieglitz Snyder Architecture designed the project. Funding was provided through the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development, the Federal Home Loan Bank of New York, New York State Homes and Community Renewal, the City of Buffalo and a loan from Five Star Bank.
