Colleen Kulikowski January 26, 2016

Most exclusive luxury condos in Buffalo area

A new concept of luxury living in Buffalo NY is at hand and a select few in Buffalo will be able to call the Avant home. I recently had the opportunity to visit this most impressive luxury building again.
Pricing range from $440,000 to $1,300,000 and all units have spectacular views of the City of Buffalo. This property is New York State Empire Zone with property tax savings.

Luxury Condo Living in the heart of Buffalo

For those that are seeking the luxury downtown lifestyle, it appears that their options are expanding. The developers have created a niche market in the city of Buffalo.

The Avant will has a fitness center, pool, conference room, enclosed parking and restaurant in this mixed-use building with an Embassy Suites Hotel (which will be in the first seven floors of the building) and office suites (that will be on floors 8-12) as well as the Luxury condos on floors 14-16.

Luxurious Amenities of the Avant

The Avant condo community is an exclusive luxury condo community with 26 owner occupied luxury condos. Each floor of these fantastic residential luxury condo community has a different amenity for these owners:
  • The 14th floor has a board room
  • 15th floor has an exclusive exercise area for residents (the hotel will also have a fitness center)
  • 16th floor will provide a spectacular solarium for owners to relax and entertain their guests

The amenities for these luxury condos include:

  • Room Service and on-site catering services
  • Maid service
  • Access to indoor pool
  • Secure underground parking, private entrance
  • on-floor locked storage for each residence
  • Condo community park with grill, benches and pet area
  • Pet Friendly to American Humane Society standards
  • Valet parking option available to visitors
  • 24- hour lobby attendant
  • Dry cleaning valet
  • Three restaurants on site, 50 within walking distance of the Avant

There are 26 residences available, with sizes ranging from 1,000 to 3,000 square feet and will take up the top three floors of the Avant building. These units will have sweeping views of the Downtown landscape. The $80 million redevelopment of the former Dulski federal building is an interesting option in the Luxury home market in Buffalo New York. One that I really like.French for “forward”, Avant’s classic glass curtain wall profile reflects Buffalo today and tomorrow. Sustainable designed, this reuse of a former federal building covers an entire city block.

Sustainable choices have driven Avant’s design decisions and has made it the largest recycling project Western New York has ever seen. The glass curtain of high-performance Low-E glass structure represents a cost premium of more than 35% over traditional construction, but promises many decades of of energy-efficient livability. Careful attention was paid to all material sourcing to minimize the carbon footprint of the transportation of goods.

Embassy Suites is situated on the first seven floors, Class A office space on the next five floors and 26 exceptional luxury residences on the top three floors.

Selection of Buffalo Luxury Condos For Sale


Sharon Linstedt a Buffalo News Business Reporter recently reported that the most expensive group of Luxury condos are about to hit the Buffalo area market at the Avant.

The 28 upscale residential units –with an average asking price of $777,000 — are atop Avant, the former Dulski Federal Building, in the 200 block of Delaware Avenue downtown. The most expensive of the new residences costs $1.73 million.

Uniland Development Co. of Amherst, the firm behind the $85 million Avant project, admits it is pushing the local real estate envelope. “We realize these are the highest-priced condos Buffalo has ever seen, but we’re very confident there is a market for them,” said Uniland Vice President Michael J. Montante. While two of the units have base prices in the mid-$300,000s, 18 of the condos are priced over $500,000, and eight have price tags of more than $1 million.

Over at the Buffalo Pundit there is a great discussion of these condos vs. say purchasing a luxury condo in Fort Lauderdale. If someone sees the value in purchasing at the Avant, they will. So many times I have seen condos go up in Florida and thought nobody will buy them, yet they sell out in a matter of days of the offering. Granted that was in the height of the market. But now, what Uniland is doing is proving that there is going to be a turn around. The developers generally see it before the general population and they see a vision of what Buffalo will be not what is.
