Cornerstone Lofts Now Available for Purchase

The reimagined Bethlehem Church is now home to 12 unique units

Combining historic architecture and modern design, Buffalo’s newest high-end city condominium project – Cornerstone Lofts – is pleased to announce that the new lofts are now available for purchase.

Built in 1909, Bethlehem Church was the cornerstone of its community. Over a century later, the legacy of this landmark has been restored and brought to new life as Cornerstone Lofts. Lofts are ready for viewing, with an open house being held on Saturday, October 9, 9am-12pm.

Nestled in a close-knit residential community in the heart of Buffalo at 340 Bird Avenue, the development offers a variety of spacious, open floor plans beaming with natural light and featuring original exposed brick, custom designed cabinetry, luxurious finishes, full appliance packages, and private parking.

“Neighboring Buffalo State, and just steps from the art galleries, restaurants, and shopping of the Elmwood Village, Cornerstone Lofts offers more than just a home,” said Robert Blake, Exclusive Agent. “It offers atmosphere, culture, and community.”

“I believe my great-grandfather would have been amazed at how his architectural design has remained intact and has been adapted to be part of Buffalo 112 years after he designed the original structure” said Lucy Miller Haskins, great-granddaughter of Bethlehem Church architect Martin Miller. “He’d be proud that his design has stood the test of time and has been transformed with new life.”

Starting from the low $200,000s, the development preserves the history of the building and its surroundings. “To us, it was important to maintain the look and the feel while modernizing the building to meet today’s design standards, taste, and needs of the community” said Peter Hunt, Partner in Cornerstone Lofts. “Bringing something new to the ever-evolving Buffalo community, this project was designed and built with passion and with spirit for the next generation of Buffalonians.”

Cornerstone Lofts are walking distance to Elmwood Avenue, Delaware Park, The Albright Knox Museum, and Burchfield Penney Art Center, and are minutes from downtown. With floor plans ranging from one to three bedrooms and priced from $219,900–$425,000, residents will be treated to an array of special features including:

  • Private street-level entrances for each unit
  • Open-concept floor plans
  • Soaring ceilings: 18-feet in mezzanine units; 10-feet in garden-level units
  • Expansive windows bathing each unit with natural light
  • European-style custom cabinetry
  • Full stainless-steel appliance packages
