Adding private sector perspective to downtown development.


At the request of Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown, Partnership staff have convened and led a team of business leaders, real-estate professionals, economic development practitioners, and key municipal stakeholders to complete the Buffalo Building Reuse Project (BBRP).  Over the course of a yearlong study, BBRP volunteers crafted recommendations and actionable strategies to make Downtown Buffalo more competitive for private investment in the 21st century.

The complete list of recommendations was released to the public in January 2012, and is now in the process of being implemented by the BBRP team and the Partnership's Development Advisory Council.  

BBRP is made possible by the generous support of organizations including the City of Buffalo, National Grid, National Fuel, the Erie County Industrial Development Agency, and the State Historic Preservation Office.
