Niagara Falls wants senior apartments in former police headquarters

The huge former Public Safety Building in Niagara Falls could become living space for scores of senior citizens.

The city's Community Development Department has requested proposals from developers by Sept. 1 for reuse of the vacant 78,000-square-foot building at 520 Hyde Park Blvd., located on a 3-acre site with large parking lots.

But proposals that call for senior apartments and include a project labor agreement with local unions will receive top priority, Community Development Director Seth Piccirillo said.

“The neighborhood surrounding 520 Hyde Park Blvd. deserves a renovation plan that brings new life to this vacant structure, preventing a costly demolition and putting the building back on the tax rolls,” Piccirillo said.

The Police Department and City Court moved in 2008 to 1925 Main St.
