The Buffalo Planning Board scheduled a public hearing for 4 p.m. Monday on Dr. Fadi Dagher's proposal for a $25 million mixed-use apartment building at the corner of Main and Dodge streets, just north of the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus.
Dagher's Cedarland Development is proposing to construct a five-story project on the vacant lot at 1159 Main St., where the dilapidated former Buffalo Tourist Lodge used to stand.
Plans call for a 128,890-square-foot building on a 1.5-acre parcel.
The building will include about 215 apartments – 85 one-bedroom, 15 two-bedroom and 115 studio units. Rents will be market rate, Dagher has said. The project – owned by Dagher's D&S Capital Real Estate – is aimed at medical campus workers, as well as University at Buffalo medical students and other downtown employees.
