Reimagining a Part of History
With its strong lines and elegant bell tower, Bethlehem Presbyterian Church served as the cornerstone of its community—since the first brick was laid in 1909.
Today, the historic structure is reborn as Cornerstone Lofts—new homes and a new chapter of Buffalo’s rich history at the center of a vibrant, close-knit neighborhood.
Over a Century of BUFFALO HISTORY
Cornerstone Lofts is built upon the fabric of a great city
Designed in 1909 by architect Martin C. Miller, Bethlehem Church was the home of a parish founded in 1891 on Buffalo’s West Side.
Red-bricked, neo-gothic, and as gloriously proud as the community it served. Its handsome tower and attractive facade has remained a revered, well-regarded cornerstone of the community.
111 years later, Cornerstone Lofts reimagines that spirit of community for a new generation of Buffalonians, and a new chapter of history.
the Cornerstone of PRESERVATION
Cultural heritage endures through adaptive reuse
Preserving a building is an environmental asset. Less energy is used, and less waste is created.
The scale of the building allowed architects an established form, height, and mass in which to develop a residential design.
The result: the striking contrast of an historic exterior design and stunningly modern, spacious interiors.
