In moving to Buffalo three years ago, I've heard this a lot: 'you moved here at a good time.'  Many folks suggesting to me that Buffalo is going through a renaissance.

Buffalo Rising writes today that there is some exciting news for Buffalo's Fruit Belt area

What may be the largest private-sector development within the Fruit Belt is heading to the Zoning Board of Appeals next week for review.  Symphony Property Management is proposing ‘The Lawrence,’ a five-story building with a total of 131 market-rate apartment units and 74 parking spaces for a site that fronts both Michigan Avenue and Maple Street.  Stieglitz Snyder Architecture is designing the project.

There will be around 131 units next to the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus and the neighborhood. 

 The development consists of a ground story of enclosed parking and four stories of residential units above. The building is designed to front both Michigan Avenue and Maple Street. The proposed structure will accommodate 74 parking spaces in an enclosed garage on the ground floor.

There will be everything from studios to two-bedroom units, with a fitness center and offices for the building managers.
