Buffalo Zoning Board rejects Potomac Avenue condo project

A 24-unit condominium project with underground parking planned for Potomac Avenue was rejected Wednesday by the city’s Zoning Board of Appeals.

The board sided with dozens of residents who attended the meeting and argued that the project is too large, and doesn’t fit in with the character of their West Side neighborhood.

In addition, the zoning board said, the Frizlen Group, the project developer, didn’t prove it was facing any hardship if the plan was rejected since it is buying the property contingent upon getting necessary approvals to build the condominiums.

Frizlin’s plan called for a two-story 24-unit condominium project at 794 Potomac Ave. with parking underneath the building. A single-family home and automotive workshop are currently located on the property.
