Construction will soon start on the $70-million project to convert the former AM&A’s department store building downtown into the Wyndham Buffalo Hotel, reports The Buffalo News.
Brian Frost, CEO of general contractor Loung Construction, told the publication that the project is now entering the construction phase following a long, complex and costly environmental remediation and some demolition.
The developer Landco H&L is redeveloping the former retail store at 377 Main St. into a 300-room hotel, along with two first-floor restaurants.
The 375,000-square-foot complex will also include 6,000 to 8,000 square feet of retail space, a New York City-style nightclub, an arcade, a large pool and spa in the basement, and 40,000 square feet of banquet and meeting space.
Construction of the project is expected to be completed in two years.
