Massachusetts Avenue Houses

The Massachusetts Avenue Houses, located in Buffalo, New York, recently underwent extensive renovations to revitalize the West Side of Buffalo as a mixed-income, mixed-use sustainable community. This all-inclusive project fits right within the creativity, liveliness and spirit of Buffalo's Massachusetts Avenue Corridor Green Development Zone (GDZ) and the image that its inhabitants have for its future.

This project refreshed the area along Massachusetts Ave., and Sherwood, Hampshire, 14th, 19th, Chenango, W. Utica, Vermont and Normal Streets in Buffalo, New York.
