Massachusetts Avenue Houses - PUSH Buffalo

The Massachusetts Avenue Houses, 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 created opportunities for new, quality, affordable rental housing, retail and commercial investments, streetscape improvements and enhanced public safety. This project refreshed the area along Massachusetts Avenue, and Sherwood, Hampshire, 14th, 19th, Chenango, West Utica, Vermont and Normal Streets in Buffalo, New York.

Mass Ave Community Homes (MACH) delivers rental housing through the significant rehabilitation and new construction of 16 buildings providing 46 units and 800 square feet of leasable commercial space. The project included 7 substantially rehabilitated and 9 newly constructed buildings, which consists of 2-4 family homes.
