New View: 880 Elmwood


0

Ellicott Development continues its plans for two plots located at 878-80 Elmwood Avenue. The company took over last month approved by the Regional Appeals Board for greater integration with neighboring structures, it added commercial space to the ground floor and reduced the number of apartments. The refurbished plan consists of a total of seven apartments on the 2nd and 3rd floors and two living / working units on the first floor. The live / work space is ideal for small professional offices or service businesses.

Based on city and public feedback, the company made further changes, including:

  • Reduce the total width of the building to 58 feet. The reduction zone occurs on the south side of the proposed building. This creates a greater separation between it and the existing house in the south, where the driveway is located to access the outdoor parking lot at the back.
  • Similar concerns were expressed about balconies at the heights of the proposed building. The side balconies were removed in favor of the front and back balconies. Third floor apartments had access to small private terraces.
  • A new modern design that adapts to the historical conditions of the neighborhood, not to compete with it.

The abstract architecture, in response to concerns about height and proximity to neighboring houses, reworked the corner of the pipe to the south, including removing the roof of the tower’s top.

In addition, a new modern contemporary design was introduced into the project, but the forms and dimensions are still based on the existing historical architecture. The materials, although they are used in a modern way, were chosen because they were found in some form throughout the larger community of Elmwood Village. The exterior material includes a set of bricks and vertical panel panels. The wide opening of the windows to the spacious dwellings is intended to bring natural light into the spacious modern dwellings.

The planning board will review the new design on Monday.


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.
