The Exchange: Luxury Apartments Open in Amherst

Homefinder Extra

The luxury apartments at The Exchange bring a contemporary, “urban-style” living to the Amherst community.

“People who enjoy living in Amherst, want something that rivals a downtown loft with high end features,” explained Lois Rosenbloom, director of operations at Bevilacqua Development.

The Exchange is part of the University Place development, a mixed-use center at 1280 to 1300 Sweet Home Rd. across from the University at Buffalo.

As a mixed-use complex, The Exchange features 42 high-end apartments in two buildings situated on three floors above shops, restaurants, retail and office space on the ground level.

Fourteen different floor plans create a mix of one-bedroom, one-bath and two-bedroom, two-bath apartments.

“Units range in size from 1,126 to 1,308 square feet for the one-bedroom plan and from 1,624 to 1,950 square feet for the two-bedroom designs,” said Rosenbloom. “They are currently available for lease.”

The apartment residences have a modern, open-concept layout and high-end designer finishes. For example, 10-foot high ceilings and eight-foot solid core doors give the apartments an lofty feeling.

“With light hardwood flooring, large windows and decorator’s white walls, the Exchange apartments are very welcoming and bright,” continued Rosenbloom.

Each apartment features an oversized kitchen with island. The kitchens contain an under-mount stainless-steel sink, Carrera marble backsplash with imported white quartz countertop and white Shaker-style cabinets with soft close drawers and hinges.

All of the built-in Frigidaire appliances are stainless steel, including a gas range, wall oven, dishwasher, full-size side-by-side refrigerator, beverage center and microwave oven.

“The oversized master bedrooms can easily fit a king-size bed,” she added.

The en-suite bathrooms have marble tiles, double-sink vanities and a glass-surround shower with an overhead rain shower. The second bedroom also features walk-in closets and a private bathroom with a glass-surround shower.

All of the apartments include a front-load washer and a dryer in a laundry closet.

In addition, The Exchange highlights a trendy, roof top terrace that offers views of the University at Buffalo and surrounding areas.

“It provides a destination for residents to relax after a busy day,” said Rosenbloom. “We are very excited to offer something completely different from what’s on the market.”

Rents start at $1,400 for a one-bedroom and $1,750 for a two-bedroom.

“We also have a limited number of luxury apartments at our Commons on North French plaza, but there are not enough there to meet the demand,” she said.

In addition to on-site restaurants and retail outlets, The Exchange is minutes away from restaurants; shopping including the Boulevard Mall, Wegmans and Tops; the University at Buffalo; and Routes 290 and 990.

Open house is scheduled from 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
