LPCiminelli received Buffalo Planning Board approval Monday night for the second phase of its Highland Park Village project to convert the 27.1-acre former Central Park Plaza just east of Main Street into a new residential community.
The construction contractor-turned-developer plans to build another 123 residential units just east of Holden Street, on the south side of part of the newly rebuilt Chalmers Avenue. Plans by HHL Architects and Wendel call for 39 two-story townhouses, 19 single-family homes and five 13-unit apartment buildings, on 6.67 acres.
Each three-story apartment building will include four one-bedroom and one two-bedroom apartments on the ground floor that are handicapped-accessible, plus eight two-story units above them. The single-family homes range in size from 1,333 square feet to 1,810 square feet.
