The Colored Musicians Club has received approval from the City of Buffalo’s preservation board for renovation and expansion, reports WKBW.
The $2-million project includes a redesigned stage, professional grade lighting system and a sophisticated sound and acoustic arrangement.
In addition, the project also involves a second structure with a contrasting design. It will provide “much needed accessibility features” such as an elevator and enhanced restrooms within the new atrium. There will be a glass enclosed connecting bridge on the second floor, a new greenroom, conference area and educational spaces as well.
A construction management firm will be selected in the coming days.
