Luxury Glass Tower Plan For Park Lane Site Shown

The luxury tower to be built on the longtime site of the Park Lane restaurant at Gates Circle will be a sleek 23-story glass building with 68 upscale condos, the developer’s newly unveiled plans show.

The building would be the tallest residential structure in the region, and the condos will start at $450,000 and soar to more than $2 million for the penthouse.

“We probably went through 20 revisions of the design before arriving at this one,” said Uniland Development Corp. Vice President Michael Montante. “We believe it will be a beautiful new landmark for Buffalo.”

The project has been controversial since it was first announced last July, and residents of the nearby Park Lane Condominiums say they plan to file legal action to stop it from being built.

The $55 million tower — designed by Diamond & Schmidt Architects of Toronto, with Buffalo’s Hamilton Houston Lownie — features a two-story limestone base topped by a glass and bronze metal tower.

Among its features is an internal lobby wall covered with vegetation that will serve as a “biofilter” for the structure’s air systems. “The design is amazingly elegant

and appropriate for the grand boulevard setting,” said Matthew W. Meier of Hamilton Houston Lownie.
