Jemal Re-Starting Statler Facade Work


Doug Jamal goes to the place where the late Mark Cross rested in Statler City. Jamal presented a plan of work for the lower level of the façade on the Niagara Avenue stage and Croce completed the work. started last year. Antunovich Associates has proposed new work plans to be considered by the Board of Trustees on Thursday.

The scope of work consists of:

  • Return the surface of the building to its original aesthetics.
  • Restoring the original terracotta costumes and decorations that have been worn over the years.
  • Remove the red granite roof that is not original for the building.
  • Replace the missing terracotta block with GFRC versions.
  • Restoration / repair of the original revolving doors at the main entrance.
  • Remove the temporary sign at the main entrance.
  • Relocate the door openings that have since been moved to their original locations.
  • Reduce the size of the openings along Genesee Street (which are not original) to match the size of the holes in Delaware Avenue.
  • Paint and repair existing wooden windows where necessary.
  • Paint and clean window bars.
  • Remove showcases that are not original for the building and replace it with showcases that fit the original look.
  • Rehabilitation of copper-plated porches in front of shops along Delaware Avenue, Mohawk and Genesis Street.
  • Repairs and restoration of two original sidewalks on Delaware Avenue and Franklin Street.
  • Restoring an umbrella on Genesis Street.

The new showcases will be aluminum with a brass finish / bronze color. The boutiques have a decorative attachment to create a showcase profile that was original for the building.

The proposed canopy / canopy work includes the restoration of copper canopies in front of shops. The balconies are 2′-5 “in height, project 1′-0” across the building and match the width of the associated showcases.

The work also includes the repair and restoration of two original sidewalks along Delaware Ave. and Franklin Street and the restoration of the canopy on Genesis Street. Each shade will have a steel structure and is covered with aluminum with a dark mesh finish and GFRC decorative vases and Ales glass. Each building extends 18 feet outside the building surface and corresponds to the entrance width of the building.

Jamal has not officially announced the interior plans of the building he bought in May. WKBW reports the building will have “600 hotel rooms, conference facilities, restaurants and entertainment facilities”.

The rise of Buffalo

Sometimes the authors at Buffalo Rice work together in a collaborative effort to capture different events and stories. These writings cannot be assigned to a single author as it is a joint effort. Often the formation of a post is started by one writer and passed on to one or more writers before the end. Sometimes there are authorial qualities at the end of one of these posts. Other times, “Buffalo Rises” is only offered as the creator of the article. In either case, the inscription is original for Buffalo Rising.
