Broadway Market Exterior Reconstruction
Objective: Foit-Albert Associates was selected as the Prime Consultant to design improvements to the façade and streetscape at the Broadway Market, Buffalo’s public market.
The scope of our services included architectural and engineering services including Pre-Design, Scoping and Programming Phase, Schematic Design Phase, Environmental Phase, Design Development Phase, Construction Documents Phase, Bid Phase and Construction Administration/Closeout Phase.
Project Details: This transformational community revitalization project will positively alter the appearance of the Broadway market and surrounding commercial district as well. The main objectives are to: remove insensitive EIFS and tattered awnings, exposing the original brick façade underneath; restore the original concrete upper and masonry lower façades; design for a large permanent art installation onto the Broadway façade as part of the design; retrofit existing aluminum storefront system into the new façade; install weatherproofing to masonry expansion joints; replace any doors that are past their useful life; furnish and install new signage; provide new façade lighting; replace damaged concrete and paver areas along Broadway and add planters and benches.
Architects assessed the site conditions; researched the history and material of the site; prepared renderings and diagrams and are currently working on the construction documents.
