Interior reconstruction, renovations and building upgrades are well underway at 270 Michigan Ave. in Buffalo, a property that was historically home to the Buffalo Envelope Company. The project’s general contractor, Concept Construction Corp, was selected as the construction manager by Ellicott Development Co. to oversee the work.  

Plans call for renovations to the interior of the building into a mix of uses including commercial office space and market-rate apartments. This unique and expansive property is able to accommodate a variety of commercial office users with boutique-style space under 2,000 square feet up to large open, contiguous floor space near 40,000 square feet in size. 

Working with the State Historic Preservation Office and National Park Service, the reconstruction work includes six brand new city living spaces with incredible views of downtown Buffalo from the top three floors. The apartments are designed to incorporate exposed views of the structure’s original “turn of the century” construction methods. The use of 12-inch thick heavy timer wooden beams, exposed vintage brick walls and some other unique and formerly hidden features are reminiscent of and offer hints into the building’s long-time forgotten uses of the past.  

While managing the work of 40-plus workers in multiple trades, Concept Construction is on schedule to deliver the completed project by the end of July.   

“We are excited to work with Concept Construction Corp on bringing this vacant building back to life. It’s adaptive reuse will add to the ongoing vibrancy and rebirth of the Seneca Street corridor,” said William Paladino, CEO, Ellicott Development Company.
