The District

Discover our Innovation District

The Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus and surrounding neighborhoods are our region’s epicenter of health, entrepreneurship, and innovation. Located near Downtown Buffalo, NY, we are home to nationally renowned hospitals, research centers, incubators, and over 200 private sector companies. Our district offers numerous resources for creatives and start-ups to learn, connect, and grow, and has a variety of housing, restaurants, and retail options nearby for everyone to enjoy.

Public Space Management

We work hard to provide a safe, attractive, and walkable district. We do this by maintaining and improving infrastructure, cultivating sustainable landscapes, and activating our public spaces through art and programming. We manage a Public Safety Council to coordinate efforts around ensuring a safe environment, and our Ambassador Program provides friendly faces on the streets to help and welcome people to the district.

We bring people together to help chart collaborative visions for the future of our district, and have created award-winning plans to guide these efforts. Our District Planning Council coordinates infrastructure, placemaking, and real estate projects, making sure that as the district grows, these investments contribute to creating a sustainable, innovative, and inclusive place.

Our work focuses on mutual benefit – creating places and programming where all are welcome and all have the opportunity to thrive.
