Buffalo, NY – Mayor Byron W. Brown today reminds City of Buffalo residents and those who work and play in downtown Buffalo to submit comments on the proposals from the three finalists for redevelopment of the Mohawk Parking Ramp site.

“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.”

Proposals from BFC Partners/CB Emmanuel Realty, Douglas Development, and SAA-EVI/ McGuire Development were selected from a field of six submissions as best fitting the City’s vision for the prime downtown site.

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:

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.
