Project Name

Pilgrim Village


903 Ellicott Street
New York

Project Details

Pilgrim Village was built in 1980 and consists of a 90-unit subsidized housing complex located in the City of Buffalo and bounded by Michigan, Best, North and Ellicott Streets.  The redevelopment of Pilgrim Village is a carefully planned urban redevelopment strategy which will reposition one of Buffalo's private Section 8 housing developments into a multi-use, mixed-income, multigenerational living center.

Phase I of the redevelopment proposal, knows as Campus Square, involves the demolition of five buildings which currently house 25 units.  An investment of $90M is planned and will include a six story, 152 unit apartment complex and parking structure.  When complete, the development will contain 90 affordable units and 62 market rate units.  Sixty-five (65) existing apartments will remain and be rehabbed resulting in a total of 217 total apartments of which 67% will be made available to low income and student low income individuals.   It should be noted that no tenants will be displaced by the project.

The location of the project is near the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus - within walking distance from Buffalo General and Roswell Park.  Public transportation, including bus and light rail are located nearby.
