Subject: [CPEO-BIF] South Buffalo Brownfield Opportunity Area (NY)

Developers plot re-use of city brownfield

A sprawling, 1,900-acre series of parcels that at one time was all industrial land could become Buffalo's newest development zone.

The land, dubbed the South Buffalo Brownfield Opportunity Area, is eyed for myriad projects ranging from Class A office space to high-tech, research incubators. That was the advance word from the planning team hired by the Buffalo Urban Development Corp. to look at potential uses for the land, which extends from the Buffalo River south to the Buffalo-Lackawanna border.

BUDC directors got a sneak preview of a detailed development master plan Tuesday morning.

The land includes five active rail lines and 800 parcels. Sitting along its southern boundary is the Buffalo Lakeside Commerce Park, which has already welcomed several new tenants, and 185 acres of land the city acquired along the Buffalo River.
