Former Industrial Land Now Ready for Future Growth

by Jenna Kavanaugh, Marketing Director

A few weeks ago local photographer Jim Cavanaugh (no relation – yes, our last names are really spelled differently) took some new aerial images of Buffalo Lakeside Commerce Park, an urban commerce park on reclaimed waterfront land in Buffalo, NY. It was the perfect day and the photos are amazing. Looking at them I recalled images Peter Cammarata and Dave Stebbins, Buffalo Urban Development Corporation (BUDC), previously shared with me that show the transformation of the site.

This is an incredible brownfield redevelopment story made possible by the tremendous vision of BUDC and both public and private investment. I hope you enjoy the photos below of the Union Ship Canal transformation into the Ship Canal Commons – now an attractive  park with a waterfront access for employees of the business park as well as residents throughout the Buffalo Niagara region.
