About 453 Porter Avenue

Opportunity abounds for this former church turned museum/cultural building in the heart of Buffalo's west side. Much of the historic architectural detail is still in place with millions of dollars in improvements over the past 20+ years - including a modern high-power electric service, updated heating/boiler system (2015), roof maintenance with some copper gutters replaced and updated chimney flashing. Built on the "Akron Plan" of church design, the former Plymouth Methodist Church has an open concept that can be divided into smaller spaces through sets of various large room dividers. Among its features, the structure has 3 balconies, many of the original brass light fixtures, oak hardwood floors in near-perfect condition, a stunning Moeller pipe organ (non-operational), amazing plasterwork, stained glass windows, and beautiful woodwork. It also contains a bell tower that has potential as an elevator shaft. Other standouts include a 2 car garage, a large basement/fellowship hall, and multiple decorative fireplaces. It's located a block away from Kleinhans Music Hall, 2 blocks form D'Youville University and a short distance from Allentown & the Elmwood Village.
