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.


The first phase of Pilgrim Village's redevelopment is known as Campus Square.  It involves the demolition of five buildings comprising 25 affordable units.  In its place will be a 161 unit, mixed income apartment complex comprised of 106 affordable and 55 market rate units.  In addition, 57 existing affordable apartments will undergo renovation.  When complete, Pilgrim Village will have 218 total apartments of which 163 will be affordable.  A new parking structure is also planned.  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.


As noted above, ECIDA sales tax benefits will be limited to the renovation of the affordable housing units only.
