BUFFALO, N.Y. - The former AM&A building in Downtown Buffalo will soon have new life.
On Tuesday, the Buffalo Planning Board approved a $50 million conversion project. Plans include a 300 room hotel, two restaurants, six apartments, a medical clinic, and an underground spa. Landco H & L Incorporated paid $2.7 million for the building late last year.
The hotel will be used for overnight accommodations for Chinese tourists in New York City who are on excursion to Niagara Falls and Western New York.
Renovation work is expected to start in the coming months.
