Buffalo, NY – Mayor Byron W. Brown today announced the City of Buffalo is seeking resident input on proposals from the three finalists for redevelopment of the Mohawk Parking Ramp site in the heart of downtown Buffalo.
“The Mohawk Parking Ramp site presents a unique opportunity to create a substantial mixed-use development near some of Buffalo’s largest office buildings, prized entertainment and restaurant venues, and transit, including the NFTA metro rail and numerous NFTA bus lines,” Mayor Brown said. “Now we want to hear from the public on the proposals submitted by the three finalists. This is a great opportunity to have a voice in what will be a game-changing project in the heart of downtown Buffalo.”
In December of 2020, the City of Buffalo released a Request for Proposals for the redevelopment of the 1.1-acre, City- owned Mohawk Parking Ramp site, located at 477 Washington St. The Mohawk Ramp Selection Committee received six incredible responses from local and national developers for the redevelopment, and began its review and evaluation process in the summer of 2021.
According to the Committee, the three proposals that best met the evaluation criteria were BFC Partners/CB Emmanuel Realty, Douglas Development, and SAA-EVI/ McGuire Development. As the selection process moves toward its conclusion, the Mayor’s Office of Strategic Planning is asking for community input on the three proposals.
Community members can learn more about the proposals from the three development team finalists, including overviews and key element highlights, and take the proposal survey by visiting: www.buffalony.gov/Mohawk.
The survey will be live for comment submissions through Friday, October 8, 2021 at 5 p.m. Comments are limited to 1000 characters.
All comments will be shared with the Mayor’s Office of Strategic Planning Development Team and members of the Mohawk Ramp Selection Committee.
