History

Recent Events and Actions Taken

  • The property was acquired by Buffalo Niagara Riverkeeper and the WNY Land Trust.
  • Buffalo Niagara Riverkeeper intends to demolish the structures and create a waterside park.
  • Buffalo Rising: "A decision was made to create a waterfront park in an area of the city that does not have much quality waterfront access. A condemned building (sitting on brownfield land) located at 1660 Niagara Street turned out to be the perfect location for just such a park. A press conference was held earlier today to highlight the long overlooked property. Once developed, the access point will enable kayakers to reach Scajaquada Creek, Black Rock Canal and the Niagara River."
