• 905 Elmwood Rendering—Ellicott Development

Buffalo, NY

Ellicott Development replaced the Elmwood-Delavan Food Mart with a four-story mixed-use building. It is anchored by a restaurant with additional retail space and 21 apartments. 905 Elmwood aligns with Buffalo’s Green Code, supporting walkable, mixed-use neighborhoods and strengthening economic centers. The building fills a void along the Elmwood strip and holds an urban edge at a busy intersection. The project and the architecture ultimately want to strike the right balance of being a good neighbor and setting a tone for development in this rooted yet progressive and vibrant community.
