The Buffalo Planning Board has postponed a decision on a proposal by Rochester-based DePaul Developmental Services to merge four lots into one at 2633 Delaware Avenue, where it proposes to develop a 150-unit affordable and supportive housing apartment complex.
The Pan-American Square Apartments would be made up of three four-story buildings with a total area of 174,000 square feet connected by one-story walkways in the middle of a long and narrow strip of land between Delaware and Colvin avenues, starting next to Delaware Consumer Square.
In March 2021, the $30 million project, which would add 83 parking spots and 20 bicycle spaces, was authorized. It would contain 2629 Delaware, 520 Colvin, and 291 Virgil Avenue homes.
DePaul wants to combine all four locations into a single location in order to complete the land acquisition and financing and commence building. But because the parcels are in different groups, the Planning Board decided it couldn’t do anything without a change to the zoning.
