Northland Beltline Redevelopment Project

Northland Beltline Redevelopment Project A brownfield redevelopment project, in partnership with Governor Andrew M. Cuomo’s Buffalo Billion initiative and Mayor Byron Brown, on Buffalo’s East Side
(2)

The Northland Corridor Redevelopment Project, in partnership with Governor Andrew M. Cuomo’s Buffalo Billion initiative and Mayor Byron Brown, will transform distressed land on Buffalo’s East Side into the future home of the Western New York Workforce Development Center and a neighboring shovel ready urban business park. Anchoring the 50-acre business park will be the $44 million dollar Western New York Workforce Development Center located at 683 Northland Avenue. Buffalo Urban Development Corporation, the City of Buffalo’s not-for-profit land reclamation and development agency, is overseeing the redevelopment process. BUDC was granted $6.7 million from the state to purchase approximately 35 acres of land and conduct site planning for the property. Together, BUDC and the state will invest in necessary site improvements and work to attract businesses in the critical growing sectors of advanced manufacturing and energy. The redevelopment of the site supports the Western New York Regional Economic Development Council’s smart growth strategy and will provide many local residents with future employment opportunities within walking distance of their homes. Understanding the needs and concerns of the project’s neighbors has guided, and will continue to guide, all related decision making. A participatory planning process was established in the spring of 2015 to ensure a meaningful and productive dialogue between the project’s partners and stakeholders. Follow the Northland Corridor Redevelopment Project’s page to stay informed about project events, updates, and general news.

We were blessed to have not one, but two nominees in the Adaptive Reuse category: 612 Northland, now the home of Albright-Knox Northland; and Phase 2 of 683 Northland, now the home of Buffalo Manufacturing Works and the future home of Retech Systems. Kudos to the teams that have helped Buffalo Urban Development Corporation make these projects happen, including Kathleen Kinan, B Thomas Mancuso and a host of contractors for 612 Northland; and Watts Architecture & Engineering, Barbara Campagna and Gilbane Building Company for Phase 2 of 683 Northland.

Our Part 3 for the historic preservation of the former Niagara Machine & Toolworks Factory at 683 Northland has been approved by the National Park Service. Great job in preparing this Part 3 and all of the work that led to this by our team led by Barbara Campagna and Watts Architecture & Engineering, especially Marie Carone and Rob Robert Sanders!

The historic Niagara Machine & Tool Works Factory in Buffalo was converted into the Northland Workforce Training Center and light manufacturing in Buffalo, NY. Built from 1910-1981, the factory was rehabilitated using historic preservation tax credits, brownfield tax credits and New Market tax credits. The Part 3 was approved by the National Park Service in August, 2020. Prime Architect - Watts Architecture & Engineering; Historic Preservation Architect - BAC/Architecture + Planning, PLLC.

Luis Rodriguez Jr. built his business from the ground up - Buffalo Business First

Later this year, Rodriguez Construction will move from Seneca Street in the Larkin District to the Northland Workforce Training Center at 683 Northland Ave.

“That is just one example of how Luis is really tuned into the community,” said Peter Cammarata, Buffalo Urban Development Corp. president. “You have to admire how Luis built up the company in a very entrepreneurial way.”

If not for a scheduling miscue in Las Vegas, Luis Rodriguez Jr.’s career path might have taken a different road.
