History – Situated in the core of downtown Buffalo, 298 Main Street was first developed by Dr. James Platt White in 1881 –  an eminent citizen who was influential in the creation of the University of Buffalo School of Medicine.  The “original” White Building, as it was then known, was 7 stories tall and the first fireproof building in Buffalo.  In 1905, Dr. White’s widow, Mary Anna White, replaced the original building with the current structure – the “new” White Building (now called The Main and Cathedral Building).  Designed by the renowned architecture and structural engineering firm of R.J. Reidpath and Sons, it is constructed from concrete and brick and fronts both Main Street and Cathedral Park.  The building’s architecture is quietly elegant, blending the symmetry of Georgian Architecture with Italian Renaissance design elements such as stone dentil cornices.

Vision – We are adaptively redeveloping 298 Main Street into a mixed-use transit oriented development with Class A office space, live/work loft apartments, penthouse lofts, a stunningly appointed lobby and ground level retail space.  The building will contain 14,000 ft2 of ground floor retail, 45,000 ft2 of office space and 45,000 ft2 of residential space – including 24 live/work lofts on floors 7-10 and two penthouse lofts on floor 11.

Amenities – Among the amenities included in each apartment will be granite countertops, high-end stainless steel appliances, modern energy-efficient lighting fixtures and in-apartment laundry units.  Building amenities will include: 24 hours a day security and valet parking; 16 hours a day concierge; video intercoms to announce guests; and inclusion of utilities (except electric), cable and internet.  All apartments include 1 free parking spot at the Pearl Street parking garage with guaranteed availability of 1 more for a small monthly fee.  NFTA Metro Rail stops (in both directions) are less than 100 feet from the entrances and at least 15 crosstown NFTA Bus Stops are within a ¼ mile radius.
