Harbor District Associates, LLC


Main & Scott Streets
New York

Project Details

The developer will undertake a LEED certified conversion of the 165,000 sq. ft. complex into a mixed-use building consisting of 85,000 sq. ft. of class A office use together with a proposed 96-room Courtyard by Marriott Hotel. Which will occupy approximately 75,000 sq. ft.   A small amount of space will be dedicated to some type of retail space.  The development represents a highly productive adaptive reuse of a functionally obsolete building and is consistent with the Erie Canal Harbor Development Corporation defined objectives for the Canalside project.  If approved, the Donovan Building will be the only adaptively re-used structure within the Canalside District. With a projected 400,000 visitors  to Canalside each year, the company anticipates 85% of the hotel users to come from outside the area.

The development will be privately funded and will serve as a catalyst for additional investment in the district and will fuel further economic growth in downtown buffalo.

Canalside will be a unique environment which will foster a mixed use urban rebirth and is poised to change the entire dynamic of downtown Buffalo.  Canalside is intended to draw tourists from outside to the area.
