ABOUT LANCASTER SQUARE

The site of the former Millard Fillmore Gates Circle Hospital will be redeveloped into Lancaster Square; a vibrant, mixed-use, urban place featuring street-level retail, modern apartment living, commercial office space, food service, and an existing 750-space parking garage. At the heart of this development will be a central square that will function as a gathering place for pedestrians and a hub of activities of all types.
 
A key feature of the project will be the extension of Lancaster Avenue through the site from Delaware Avenue to Linwood Avenue. This will open up the site, creating a tree-lined boulevard flanked by ground floor retail and commercial uses, which in turn will connect neighborhoods to the east and west with a walkable, attractive urban streetscape.

We welcome community input throughout the redevelopment process and invite you to provide us with your comments using the contact form below.

"I think everyone understands the significance of this site on one of Frederick Law Olmsted's great parkway circles. TM Montante Development's plan for the redevelopment of Gates Circle stood out as exceptional because it brings together the right mix of partners and ideas." - Robert Shibley, University at Buffalo Dean of the School of Architecture and Planning

Progress

  • Lancaster Square Progress 2
  • Implosion
  • Gates Circle Redevelopment Project - April 2016
  • Spring 2017 Infrastructure Installed

Redevelopment of the former hospital site is being completed in phases, starting with site preparation work. Since acquiring the property in late 2013, TM Montante Development has:

     • Demolished 700,000 square feet of vacant building space;

     • Cleaned the site under NYSDEC’s Brownfield Cleanup Program;

     • Installed new underground infrastructure and utilities; and

     • Installed roads to open the site and connect neighborhoods.

As part of the site preparation phase, the 11-story hospital tower was imploded – an exiting milestone in the site’s physical transformation. Click here to watch a video of the implosion.

Having set the table for new building construction, TM Montante Development has partnered with Morgan Communities and is now moving forward with a six-story mixed-use building that will include retail storefronts on the ground floor and residential units above. The development team is working toward construction in Summer 2017.
