Interior | Ellicott Commons

The Ellicott Lofts were the first exciting urban living available in Downtown Buffalo. Located at 489 Ellicott Street, between Chippewa and Tupper, in the former Frontier Water and Steam Warehouse in the center of the Flower District.
The developers saved all of the architectural features of the building in order to maintain character while incorporating it with a modern feel of a New York City style apartment.

Upon entering the building, you will walk through hallways designed to resemble the interior of an art gallery with our major theme being “Art of Living”. This artistic look combined with available offices, including the compliment of secretarial help, brings us to our theme – The Art of Living and Working.

There are 38 total units with 23 of them being bi-level units, each featuring two bedrooms as well as two bathrooms and a total of 16 unique floor plans. Imagine 22-foot high ceilings and spiral staircases that offer a dramatic view of your entire apartment from the mezzanine. The oversized windows and skylights allow for sun filled rooms that make you feel as though you’re living outside. The state of the art kitchens offer professional stainless steel appliances and Zodiak Quartz countertops. Feel safe and secure at your loft apartment. Secured parking is provided to every tenant, along with secured access to the building.

Not only do Ellicott Lofts provide you with a safe and prestigious place to live, it also offers you the convenience of being one block away from the Chippewa entertainment and theatre district. You can walk or take free public transit to the Medical Center, great restaurants, summer festivals and concerts, First Niagara Center, Canalside, Coca Cola Field, the Waterfront, and to your downtown job. Don’t miss out on everything Ellicott Lofts has to offer. Let the Ellicott Lofts turn your living experience into pure Art!
