Governor Kathy Hochul today announced a Request For Proposals to redevelop the building known as Terminal A on Buffalo's Outer Harbor, an approximately 550,000-square- foot building that has been vacant for years. This RFP presents an opportunity for experienced real estate developers to purchase and transform the main terminal and three adjacent buildings into a unique waterfront destination, located at 901 Fuhrmann Boulevard. Erie Canal Harbor Development Corporation, a state entity, envisions that the project could potentially include residential, restaurants, office space, cultural attractions and parking. Proposals are due by 8 p.m. on Thursday, March 30, 2023.

"Terminal A is a massive vacant structure that has tremendous potential to become a destination that builds on the success of other Outer Harbor improvements," Governor Hochul said. "Now is the time for Buffalo to take advantage of this unique and historic architectural asset, much like what has occurred with large terminals in other waterfront cities. We look forward to seeing the creative proposals submitted for transforming the property into a destination that will attract visitors to the water's edge while also providing a unique place to live and thrive."

Empire State Development President, CEO, and Commissioner Hope Knight said, "Governor Hochul's vision for the redevelopment of Terminal A represents yet another step in the dramatic revitalization of Buffalo's waterfront. We have seen how the Outer Harbor has become a must-see destination, benefiting from smart investments that have not only generated jobs, but have created pride in a place where people want to live, work and visit."
