Progress in Buffalo: One Seneca TowerJul. 28, 2017
Washington developer Douglas Jemal is shifting his plans for the lower portions of One Seneca Tower, trimming back the number of apartments while bringing in more space for retail stores and restaurants. Jemal is turning to the second phase of his planned redevelopment of the tower, even before real construction work begins on the first phase that was already approved.
His Douglas Development Corp. still plans to renovate the tower's annex buildings into retail space and apartments. But now it wants to:
- Reduce the number of apartments from 183 to 142.
- Increase the amount of retail space.
- Construct a four-story mixed-use building and a single-story retail building on the plaza adjacent to the 38-story tower.
- Reduce the height of a proposed wind wall, while adding a wind canopy
