Savarino Seeks City Approvals for Richardson-Olmsted Project
Friday, April 2, 2021
Developer Samuel Savarino is seeking city approvals for his $26.4 million plan to convert two of the Richardson-Olmsted Complex buildings into affordable housing.
Plans by CJS Architects and Watts Engineering call for 22 units in the 47,600-square-foot, three-story stone Building 9 and 49 apartments in the 36,700-square-foot, four-story brick Building 13. Both buildings are currently vacant, and have been for decades, since the former Buffalo State Hospital closed.
