Realizing the Vision for Buffalo Niagara

by Jenna Kavanaugh, Marketing Director

The vision of a new Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus (BNMC) focused on bioinformatics, life sciences, emerging technologies, clinical care, entrepreneurship, and research has spurred critical growth in the city of Buffalo. As a result, state-of-the-art, multidisciplinary facilities like the Hauptman-Woodward Medical Research Institute; the one-of-a-kind shared facility that boasts Kaleida Health Gates Vascular Institute, the University at Buffalo’s Clinical and Translational Research Center and the independent Jacobs Institute; and Roswell Park Cancer Institute are having a tremendous impact on the city’s economy, with more than 5,000 jobs created or relocated to this innovation hub since 2003, and another 5,000 expected in the next five years.

And today, another $1.5 billion in projects are underway. Fifty percent of this investment is directed to development on the BNMC while the remaining focuses around the central business district and Buffalo’s waterfront.

These include critical components like the University at Buffalo relocating its highly ranked medical school to the BNMC. Also on the site, the new John R. Oishei Children’s Hospital has just broken ground. To support these facilities, new medical offices and other operations are growing around the campus footprint, providing essential services and business infill.

One such facility is 505 Ellicott.  Uniland Development company plans to turn this warehouse, which is adjacent to the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus into an innovation hub. The facility will provide a flexible open plan with loft-inspired collaborative work spaces. You can view Uniland’s plans at
