Onetime livery building targeted for new West Side apartments

A downtown Buffalo resident who owns a 127-year-old West Side livery building wants to turn it into 13 apartments and combine it with an adjacent small garage that would become office space.

Perry Hill has sought variances from the Zoning Board of Appeals to redevelop a two-story light brick building at 730 West Ave. into two-bedroom, one-bedroom and studio apartments. The 10,360-square-foot building was constructed in 1890.

According to design plans by Schenne & Associates, Hill also wants to turn a neighboring 2,900-square-foot block garage at 111 Hampshire St. into commercial office space, while merging the two buildings into one 0.3-acre property.

As part of his proposed Hilltopper Apartments project, Hill – who bought the L-shaped properties this year – plans to replace the windows, while patching and repairing the outside brick walls.

The project will be considered by the Zoning Board on April 19.
