Queen City Pop Up 

"The 2018 Spring/Summer Cycle of Queen City Pop Up is taking a brief hiatus!  Due to Buffalo's expanding lineup of Summer festivals, concerts and other fun and recreational activities, we've decided to hold off on this edition of Queen City Pop-Up and look forward to a widely successful Holiday Edition of Queen City Pop Up. We ask that our local community  continue to shop with our many Queen City Pop Up Program graduates who have opened retail shops along downtown Main Street as well as in our other retail districts."



Mayor Brown, BUDC Release 2016 Downtown Development Guide

Identifying downtown Buffalo development opportunities is even easier with the release of a new guide that provides investors with a profile of downtown's greatest assets and a listing of available tools and incentives. The guide also identifies over 20 unique parcels ready for redevelopment. 

Sponsored by National Grid, the guide is the result of a collaborative partnership between Mayor Byron W. Brown, Chairman of the Buffalo Urban Development Corporation, Buffalo Niagara Partnership, Buffalo Niagara Enterprise, CBRE Buffalo, and Buffalo Place.
