Our WorkNiagara River District

North Union Street by Architectural Resources

Design Brief

The Niagara River District has a rich history and is a community of great cultural diversity. Current efforts to strengthen this area have been successful and a strong sense of community commitment is seen in the many neighborhood organizations that are working collaboratively to further reinvestment strategies and actions. Additionally, the City of Buffalo is undertaking efforts to invest in the infrastructure of Niagara Street. Key components of the Master Plan include the transformation of Niagara Street into a complete street, an adjacent waterfront boardwalk, and well defined linkages to the surrounding mixed-use neighborhoods. One signature feature is the development of a prominent gateway entrance to the historic waterfront area of Broderick Park, which was an important access point in the Underground Railway and is a celebrated community area for African American Heritage Tourism Strategy.
